Chris Evans could apparently be starring in offbeat comedy A Many Splintered Thing.

The Captain America: The First Avenger actor is rumoured to be playing a young man who falls in love with an engaged socialite (played by Michelle Monaghan), while pretending to be a philanthropist at a charity dinner, reported Deadline.

Chris will also be involved as an executive producer on the film, which is described as an "anti-comedy in the similar vein to Amelie and (500) Days Of Summer" and is to be directed by Justin Reardon.

Production on A Many Splintered Thing is scheduled to begin in October.

Chris is expected to attend the premiere of crime drama The Iceman at the Toronto International Film Festival, in which he stars alongside Michael Shannon and Winona Ryder.

His next film roles will be in sci-fi thriller Snow Piercer, which follows a group of travellers stranded on a train, and the Captain America sequel, titled The Winter Soldier.
