Mark Wahlberg Replacing Chris Evans in Fuqua’s Infinite

-

Mark Wahlberg is in negotiations to replace Chris Evans in Paramount Pictures’ upcoming Infinite, according to Variety. To be directed by Antoine Fuqua, the film is an adaptation of the D. Eric Maikranz novel The Reincarnationist Papers.

The trade says that Evans had to bow out of the project due to scheduling issues.

The book introduces readers to the Cognomina, a secret society of people who possess total recall of their past lives. Haunted by memories of two past lives, a troubled young man stumbles upon the centuries-old secret society of similar individuals and dares to join their ranks. Evan Michaels’ now public account takes us into this organization whose members have been agents of change throughout history.

The adaptation is written by John Lee Hancock and Ian Shorr, with Hancock doing the most recent revisions.

Infinite will be produced by John Zaozirny alongside Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian at Di Bonaventura Pictures. Rafi Crohn is the executive producer.

The movie, which is scheduled for a release on August 7, 2020, will begin filming this fall.

Chris Evans, meanwhile, has completed both Knives Out and The Red Sea Diving Resort. He is also filming the limited series Defending Jacob.
