Earlier this year, while promoting the second Captain America film, Chris Evans hinted that people shouldn’t expect to see him in superhero movies much longer. In fact, his real ambition was to direct, and he wasn’t speaking hypothetically. Once titled 1:30 Train and now titled Before We Go, his directorial debut was recently announced as one of the films that will premiere at this September’s Toronto Film Festival. According to the festival’s official release, “the story follows two strangers after their serendipitous meeting in Grand Central [Station in Manhattan]. Over the course of one night, they form an unlikely bond and the conflicts in their own lives become the basis for exploration into each other and themselves.”
At quick glance, it sounds like Before Sunrise, which is not the worst place to start. Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness) plays the pretty stranger, who misses her train home, and Evans portrays a musician in the right place at the right time. In 10 years, perhaps they can reunite in Paris.
