‘The Girl On The Train’ Movie: Chris Evans, Jared Leto Bag Lead Roles Alongside Emily Blunt And Rebecca Ferguson

How about having Captain America and the Joker in lead roles in the upcoming “The Girl on the Train” opposite Emily Blunt and Rebecca Ferguson? Recent casting updates on the movie reveal that both Chris Evans and Jared Leto are being considered for lead roles in the movie.

According to Unreality TV, having both Chris and Jared in the same movie would just take things to an all-new level together. Both the actors are playing pivotal characters as a good guy and a bad guy in Marvel Cinematic Universe and DC Extended Universe, respectively. Apart from their respective cinematic universes, they have varied other films to prove their prowess as actors and might just bring it to “The Girl on the Train” as well.

If reports are to be believed, both Chris and Jared are being circled to play lead roles in the movie alongside Emily Blunt, Rebecca Ferguson and Haley Bennett. The movie is based on the novel of the same name and tells the story of Rachel who boards the same commuter train every morning and stops by this suburban home where she finds the same couple having breakfast on their deck.

One day she sees something shocking right before her train starts moving, and now she is the only person to have witnessed the incident. She offers to tell the police whatever she knows and becomes involved in what happens next. Emily Blunt will be playing the role of Rachel and it is being said that Jared and Chris are eyeing for the roles of Tom and Scott who happen to be Rebecca and Haley’s husbands, respectively.

Evening Standard reported that Emily would reportedly keep a British accent in the movie despite the fact that her character Rachel has moved to New York. The original novel was actually set in London and fans were a bit upset when the setting was moved to New York for the film adaptation. Given their extremely busy schedules, it would be interesting to see how Chris and Jared manage to come aboard the movie.
