UPDATE: Project Artemis is getting a major facelift as leading man Chris Evans has dropped out the project due to scheduling conflict. Stepping in will be Channing Tatum who is riding high off of his box office hit The Lost City.
Jason Bateman is also no longer part of the project due to creative differences. Greg Berlanti, who is best known for producing hit TV shows The Flash and The Flight Attendant, has been named the new director of the film.
Avengers stars Chris Evans (Knives Out) and Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) are set to reunite in Apple TV+’s upcoming project Project Artemis, which was purchased in a $100M+ deal.
Jason Bateman (Ozark) will direct the film from a screenplay by Rose Gilroy. Plot details are being kept under wraps but reports are saying it is “set against the space race.”
Johansson will produce with Jonathan Lia and Keenan Flynn through their These Pictures production company alongside Bateman via his Aggregate Films banner.
