'Captain America’ star Chris Evans is taking a break from acting

By Elaine Alluin,

Chris Evans is ready for acting retirement.

People reports that the 32-year-old actor is ready to leave the spotlight and be behind the scenes directing.

In a recent interview with Variety, Evans revealed he is still under contract for three more appearances that include Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the Avengers sequels.

"If I'm acting at all, it's going to be under Marvel contract, or I'm going to be directing," said Evans. "I can't see myself pursuing acting strictly outside of what I'm contractually obligated to do."

Evans will be making his big directing debut with a love story called 1:30 Train. The film is about a young woman who is played by Alice Eve, missing her ride home. She spends the rest of the night with a street musician played by Evans.

About his decision to explore the world of directing Evans said, “I’ve known for a while I wanted to direct. But (time) never really opens up. There’s another movie to do, there’s another acting job. It just got to a point where I was like, you know what — I have to do this.”

Evans went on to say that he could change his mind about acting again in the future.

“For all I know, in five years, I might say, 'S–––, I miss acting,'" said Evans. "Right now, I just want to get behind the camera and make movies."
