Chris Evans Romantic Comedy PLAYING IT COOL Acquired By Vertical Entertainment; Check Out the Trailer

     November 5, 2014


Out of AFM we’re getting some more info on a new movie we glimpsed by poster a few months back called Playing It Cool.  We already knew it featured Chris Evans and Michelle Monaghan, but now we have an expanded cast list and it’s a doozy.  Via an announcement that the picture was picked Vertical Entertainment we have an official cast list that includes Martin Starr, Aubrey Plaza, Patrick Warburton, Topher Grace, Luke Wilson, Anthony Mackie, Ioan Gruffudd, and Philip Baker Hall.

We previously reported on some of this casting over two years ago when the picture was still called A Many Splintered Thing, but titles, like all things, change.  The film was directed by Justin Reardon and written by Chris Shafer and Paul Vicknair.  Hit the jump for more on Playing It Cool and to check out the trailer, which we missed a few months back but are putting up in light of the acquisition.

Here’s the synopsis for Playing It Cool:

This is the story of ME (Evans), a young man disillusioned by love, who meets a breathtaking young woman, HER (Monaghan), at a charity dinner by pretending to be a philanthropist. Only one problem: she’s engaged. Yet, he engages into a platonic relationship to be able to keep seeing her. Like a young Walter Mitty using the power of imagination and wild vignettes, HE will stop at nothing to conquer HER heart.
