Have you seen “Revenge“? Or, “Reven-Eight-E” as I like to call it considering the clever way they use the infinity symbol for the “g” in the title? It’s quite ridiculous, but the lady of the house loves it and I can even admit to getting reeled in just enough to ask enough questions about what’s going on, why this person is doing that, and so forth. That is, until I’m told to leave the room. (Big surprise, I can be rather annoying when I don’t like something.)
Well, the star of “Reven8e” is Emily VanCamp and she plays a girl pretending to be another girl who goes to Southampton to get revenge on the people that killed her father, at least that’s how I remember it. Madeleine Stowe is in it and wow is she a long way from “I will find you. No matter how far!” and Henry Czerny is just doing his thing.
I mention all of this because VanCamp has wrangled a role as a love interest in Captain America: Winter Soldier where she’s expected to be playing (though unconfirmed) Sharon Carter, sister of Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell in the first film) and new romantic interest for ol’ Cap’n (Chris Evans).
A short list of names was revealed back in October, of which VanCamp was not included. Those that were named were Jessica Brown Findlay (“Downton Abbey”), Emilia Clarke (“Game of Thrones”), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies), Imogen Poots (Fright Night) and Alison Brie (The Five-Year Engagement). Rumor has it one of these girls may attempt to swap lives with VanCamp just so they can get in the movie, but that is just preliminary hearsay at this point.
VanCamp joins a cast that includes Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Frank Grillo, Cobie Smulders, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson and Toby Jones with a release date targeting April 14, 2014. [Deadline]
