Fans of Chris Evans will feel disappointed after hearing that due to the clash in scheduling issues of his two upcoming movies, the Marvel’s “Captain America” has left the in-the-process movie adaptation of Paula Hawkins‘ bestselling psychological thriller novel, “The Girl on the Train.” And it was revealed that now Justin Theroux of “The Leftovers” fame will play the character which was previously offered to Evans.

Chris Evans, who is currently busy shooting for “Captain America: Civil War” and also signed in to play the lead role in Marc Webb’s “Gifted,” will soon be busy in shooting and promotions of the two films and won’t be able to provide his time to the DreamWorks’ new project, revealed The Hollywood Reporter.

It was earlier revealed that “Edge of Tomorrow” and “Sicario” fame Emily Blunt will be seen playing the role of Rachel in the upcoming movie. Later, she was joined by “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation’s” fame Rebecca Ferguson, “The Equalizer” fame Haley Bennett, actor-singer  Jared Leto and now Theroux accompany them all instead of Evans.

“The Girl on the Train” will be made under the direction of “The Help” fame Tate Taylor, with a script from Erin Cressida Wilson. The production part will be handled by Marc Platt and Jared LeBoff.

If we talk about Theroux scheduled then he is currently busy in shooting for HBO’s drama “The Leftovers” and also working on the script for Ben Stiller’s upcoming comedy movie titled “Zoolander 2.”

Well, fans feel disappointed but Theroux joining the star cast of “The Girl on the Train” is a kind of a relief to them. We cannot deny that the reason given by Evans for leaving the project was a genuine one, but fans are fans. But, it is better for Evans and the entire team of the film that he realized it before the project’s start so that the makers can select some suitable face as per their likings. And now as they have got that face in Theroux, let us wish them all good luck.
