The X-Men: First Class actor will star in a unique double-feature film project.

Variety unearthed the casting news, which surfaced at the Cannes Film Festival. McAvoy will star alongside Jessica Chastain (The Help) in The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: His and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Hers from dual scripts by Ned Benson (In Defiance of Gravity). The films will tell the story of a New York couple living through life-altering events from two different perspectives – McAvoy’s restaurant owner and his wife (Chastain).

A release date has not yet been set for either film, both of which will be released as standalone features.
