According to reports from Deadline, Chris Evans is currently in negotiations for a role in a movie project called Infinite, which is an adaptation of the novel The Reincarnationist Papers: A Memoir Of Past Lives by D. Eric Maikranz. The movie is a Paramount Pictures project and will be produced by Mark Vahradian, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, and John Zaozirny. Rafi Crohn has been tapped as executive producer.
Maikranz’s novel focuses on the character Evan Michaels, who is able to remember all of his past lives and joins a secret society with other individuals who share the same ability. The story is told from Michaels’ perspective who, as he goes further and deeper into the secret society, realizes his fellow organisation members have been influencing historic events for years.
It hasn’t been announced whether Chris Evans will take on the lead role, as negotiations are still going on. However, it would fit in with a number of different projects Evans is set to work on after his (hopefully not actual) end of watch as Captain America with the release of Avengers: Endgame (2019). Like a lot of the actors whose careers have been fueled by the enormous success of the Marvel films, Evans has chosen diverse and unique projects as an actor and as a director, to which this project would definitely add.
