Chris Evans, famous for “Captain America” will be replaced in the Netflix production „The Devil All the Time” by the Romanian-born actor Sebastian Stan, the foreign media reported.
Apparently, Evans has dropped out over a scheduling issue, with his agenda getting really crowded lately. He has just confirmed to star for director Antoine Fuqua in Infinite, the tent pole Paramount sci-fi film, and he is about to start production on Defending Jacob, the Apple series he’s starring in and producing, as deadline.com reported.
The Devil All The Time is an adaptation of Donald Ray Pollock’s 2011 mid-western Gothic novel that Antonio and Paulo Campos co-scripted. In the forgotten backwoods of a place called Knockemstiff, Ohio, a storm of faith, violence and redemption brews. Out of desperation to save his dying wife, Willard Russell turns to prayer which succumbs to sacrifice. This sets our protagonist Arvin, Willard’s son, on his path from bullied kid to a man who knows when to take action. He interacts with a nefarious cast of characters: a serial killer couple, a faith-testing preacher, and a corrupt local sheriff in a story that is told across two decades.
Sebastian Stan’s recent credits include Destroyer, I, Tonya and The Avengers franchise.
