Actor Sebastian Stan is set to star in Netflix's The Devil All the Time after Chris Evans had to exit the project due to scheduling conflicts.

As Evans is scheduled to feature in director Antoine Fuqua's Infinite and Apple series' Defending Jacob (which he is both producing and featuring in), the actor could not seem to manage dates for The Devil All the Time, reports Deadline.
