The film about a man (Evans) who tries to raise the brilliant young daughter of his dead sister will shoot in the fall.

Chris Evans has signed on to star in Marc Webb's next directorial outing, Gifted.

The Fox Searchlight film about a man (Evans) who tries to raise the brilliant young daughter of his dead sister will shoot in the fall.

Tom Flynn (Highboys and Lowboys) wrote the screenplay. FilmNation is selling international rights to the film.

Gifted marks Webb's first film since 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which did not receive a third outing after disappointing reviews and so-so box-office. He previously made the critically acclaimed (500) Days of Summer for Searchlight.

Evans and Webb are repped by CAA.
