'Ghosted': Not ScarJo, Chris Evans to romance Ana de Armas
Ana de Armas, last seen as Paloma in Daniel Craig's swansong James Bond outing, No Time to Die, has bagged a major project. In her next titled Ghosted, she will be romancing Chris "Captain America" Evans, which earlier had Scarlett Johansson on board. Johansson bowed out due to scheduling issues, paving way for the 33-year-old. Armas and Evans last appeared together in Knives Out.
Why does it matter?
Replacing the Black Widow star isn't a small deal. She comes with a lot of experience and numerous nominations for top awards, like the Academy Award and Golden Globes. But de Armas has also shown she can be trusted. Knives Out was loaded with noted actors, yet her performance stood out, landing her a Golden Globes nod. So, let's see how this flick clicks.

As per several reports, de Armas is also on board the project as an executive producer. The film, which has been described as a "romantic action-adventure," hits the floors next February. Dexter Fletcher, known for Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman, is helming this one. Ideation and script are credited to Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, and Skydance will be backing the project.
She, Evans will also be working in 'The Gray Man'
