Deadline Hollywood reports that Chris Evans, who is Captain America in the Marvel superhero films, is to play an Israeli agent who helps with the rescue and transport of Ethiopian Jews to Israel.
Chris Evans is set to star in Red Sea Diving Resort, the Gideon Raff-directed drama that will be financed by Bron Studios. The drama revolves around the rescue and transport of Ethiopian Jews to Israel in 1981. Raff wrote the script and Alexandra Milchan is producing. Evans will play Ari Kidron, a charming Israeli agent who assembles a ragtag team to help with the exodus on the ground.
I will see that movie.
As for Chris Evans himself, he is evidently excited with the role.
Can't wait! https://t.co/91RqOZaVMD
