Chris Evans is reportedly attached to play legendary film star Gene Kelly in an upcoming and currently untitled picture.

According to a report by Deadline, the feature – based on an idea from Evans – will follow a 12-year-old boy working on the MGM lot in 1952, who forms an imaginary friendship with the late Hollywood legend.

The 40-year-old Captain America star is also touted to produce the project alongside Mark Kassen and T-Street Production’s Rian Johnson and Ram Bergman. John Logan, who received Academy Award nominations for his writing on Gladiator, The Aviator, and Hugo, is also attached to produce and pen the script for the feature.

Evans has previously collaborated with Johnson and Bergman on the hit mystery film, Knives Out. Rising to prominence after his role in 2005’s Fantastic Four, Evans gained global renown after rejoining the Marvel Universe as Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avenger.
