Last month, JustJared.com exclusively reported that James had pulled out of the Ariel Vroman-directed project.

    Good Lord! This guy is suddenly in EVERYTHING.

    Although he has proved to be quite a talented actor, I suspect James Franco would have portrayed the character MUCH better than Chris Evans…

    I like Chris Evans a lot, too. I’m glad he is finally getting more noticed. I am so sick and tired of reading about “the Ryans” getting everything. I’m a fan ofRyan Gosling, but there has to be more than five or six actors who get all the movie roles and all the attention.

    Good for Chris! He’s getting meatier and meatier roles and funny enough if he puts on some more weight (or a fat suit) he’ll look just like that hit man.

    this is kind of disappointing, I thought Franco would be perfect for this role. Oh well, at least we get some eye candy :d
