Chris Evans’ Child Prodigy Drama ‘Gifted’ Gets Release Date

Fox Searchlight has set an April 12 launch for Chris Evans’ family drama “Gifted,” directed by Marc Webb.

Webb is directing “Gifted,” now in post-production, from a script by Tom Flynn. Karen Lunder and Andy Cohen are producing.

Evans plays a single man raising his niece — a child prodigy portrayed by newcomer Mckenna Grace — in a coastal town in Florida. His plans for a normal school life for her are foiled when the seven-year-old’s mathematical abilities come to the attention of his formidable mother (Lindsay Duncan).

Evans reunites with “Snowpiercer” costar Octavia Spencer, who plays his character’s landlady and best friend. Jenny Slate portrays the girl’s teacher, whose concern for her student develops into a connection with the child’s uncle.

Evans last starred in “Captain America: Civil War.” Webb’s credits include “(500) Days of Summer” and the two “The Amazing Spider-Man” movies.

Fox Searchlight is opening “Gifted” two days before the launch of Universal’s “Fast 8.”
