Chris Evans Has Complicated Feelings for Michelle Monaghan in 'Playing It Cool' Trailer

Things are getting very meta

Chris Evans is a rom-com writer who hates rom-coms in the first trailer for the upcoming rom-com Playing It Cool. Got all that?

In the film, Evans plays a guy who hates commitment until he meets Michelle Monaghan's character. Unfortunately, she's engaged, although that doesn't stop the two of them from soon getting naked.

Evans' character finally takes a stand to win her over with a very dramatic gesture at the beach, but it might not be enough. (Who can resist a romantic gesture at the beach?)

Anthony Mackie, Aubrey Plaza, Topher Grace, Luke Wilson, Martin Starr and Ioan Gruffudd co-star. Justin Reardon directed from a script by Chris Shafer and Paul Vicknair. The script for the film, originally titled A Many Splintered Thing, landed a coveted spot on the Black List and was a 2011 finalist for the Nicholl Fellowship.

A release date has not yet been announced.
