With CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER wrapping up soon it won't be long before THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON needs to start shooting. Chris Evans will be wiped but he won't be taking it easy on himself. In fact, he just lined up a new project that will also mark his debut behind the camera.

Deadline reports that Evans will produce, direct, and star in 1:30 TRAIN, which is compared to Richard Linklater's BEFORE SUNRISE trilogy.

1:30 TRAIN focuses on two strangers who meet in Manhattan and spend one night together as the conflicts in their own lives become the basis for their exploration of each other and themselves.

Evans will shoot the film in the Fall and then quickly change gears to throw on the red, white, and blue again as Steve Rogers for the 2014 shoot of THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. Evans is definitely well known enough now to try his hand at several different challenging projects and taking on a directing gig was not one I expected, but I will definitely be keeping an eye out for it.

Extra Tidbit: Evans was damn good in the movie PUNCTURE. Check out the trailer above.

Ever since Not Another Teen Movie, I've been a fan. He's charming and talented.

Yup

I used to lump Chris Evans and Ryan Reynolds together. But over these last 5 years or so, Evans has become a really engaging, surprising actor. On the other hand, watching Reynolds act just makes me say "Chris Evans could have done this part so much better."

I'm all for this

I can wait for the next Avengers. I'm in no rush. I also loved Evans in Puncture and The Iceman, so any chance he gets to do a role in a smaller film is good news to me! His directing is icing on the cake.

Evans has really grown into a really good actor in these last couple of years and makes for the perfect Captain America. This new film sounds really good and one I will be anticipating with much excitement to see what he can bring with his directorial skills.
