Based on D Eric Maikranz's best-selling novel The Reincarnationist Papers, the film centres on a group of near-immortal men and women who are reincarnated over the centuries and are known as "the Infinite".

To defeat an evil mastermind who wants to destroy the planet, the group must rely on a man who suffers from schizophrenia and will have to learn that all his vivid dreams are actually memories from past lives, in order to defeat the villain. Ian Shorr and John Lee Hancock has adapted the script from Maikranz's book.

Evans most recently featured in Marvel Studios' tentpole Avengers: Endgame. He is also starring in Rian Johnson's Knives Out, alongside Jamie Lee Curtis, Daniel Craig, and Michael Shannon.
