Chris Evans, who spent a good bit of time in Atlanta filming “Captain America: Civil War” in Atlanta earlier this year is back in Georgia working on the movie “Gifted.”
The project will film in Savannah and Tybee Island.
Evans plays Frank Adler, a single man raising a child prodigy, his spirited young niece Mary (played by Mckenna Grace) in a coastal town in Florida. Frank’s plans for a normal school life for Mary are foiled when the 7-year-old’s mathematical abilities come to the attention of Frank’s formidable mother Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan) whose plans for her granddaughter threaten to separate Frank and Mary. Octavia Spencer plays Roberta, Frank and Mary’s landlady and best friend.
Chris and Octavia were spotted on the set in Tybee the other day!
