The story, told across two decades, centers on a bullied kid who becomes a man who knows when to take action, a serial killer couple, a faith-testing preacher, and a corrupt local sheriff.

Antonio Campos, whose credits include “The Sinner” and “Christine,” is directing from a script he co-wrote with Paulo Campos. Producers include Randall Poster, Ninestories’ Jake Gyllenhaal and Riva Marker, and Max Born. Annie Marter and Jacob Jaffke are executive producing.

Stan has portrayed Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier in Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Ant-Man,” “Captain America: Civil War,” “Black Panther,” and “Avengers: Infinity War.” He also starred in “Ricki and the Flash,” “The Martian” and “I, Tonya.”

Evan’s is also an Avenger, portraying “Captain America” in Marvel’s movies. He has been in talks to star in director Antoine Fuqua’s past-lives drama “Infinite” for Paramount Pictures.

Stan is repped by ICM Partners, Brookside Management and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
