Cosmopolitan, which Stillman wrote and will direct and executive produce, chronicles the loves and adventures of a group of young expatriates in Paris. Evans will play Hal, a divorced, good-looking but somber young man who’s struggling with his most recent heartache in the company of his two best friends, fellow American Jimmy and European Woddy, who’s less than sympathetic. The friend roles have yet to be cast. Evans, repped by Don Buchwald & Associates and Hamilton Hodell in the UK, next will be seen in upcoming feature War Book.
