Motor City-bound Dominic Cooper
Marvel Studios brings their patriotic hero to the big screen with this 2011 action adventure film based on the comics character of the same name. Set during WWII, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) has been deemed physically unfit for military service. As a result, he volunteers for a secret operation called Project: Rebirth and is transformed into a super-soldier dubbed Captain America.
Dominic Cooper is set to star in 'Motor City'.
The 'Devil's Double' actor - who rose to fame in all-signing, all-dancing Abba-themed movie 'Mamma Mia!' - has replaced Chris Evans in the movie, set to be directed by Albert Hughes.
The movie tells the tale of a recently released prisoner who is on the hunt for those who framed him.
Chad St. John has written the script - which reportedly has no dialogue at present - and Joel Silver will produce alongside Andrew Rona.
Warners are keen to get production on the picture started soon, but Dominic's busy schedule may delay things for a while yet.
Having already starred in 'Captain America: The First Avenger' as Howard Stark earlier this summer, he will next be seen in 'My Week with Marilyn' - alongside Michelle Williams, Emma Watson and Dame Judi Dench.
Dominic also has a leading part in 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter', based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith.
