Sadly, most of us have probably been ghosted and/or have ghosted someone else. When you're the one being ghosted, you often wonder how a seemingly good date with someone could lead to absolutely no follow-up. Well, the new movie Ghosted offers up one possible reason for that — the other person is a highly skilled, globe-trotting CIA agent.

That's the basic premise for the Apple original movie Ghosted, starring Chris Evans and Ana de Armas and hailing from the director of Rocketman and the writers of the Tom Holland Spider-Man movies and the Deadpool movies.

What do they all have in store? Here is everything that you need to know about Ghosted.

The script was written by Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, Chris McKenn and Erik Sommers.

Ghosted cast

Chris Evans and Ana de Armas headline Ghosted as Cole and Sadie, respectively.

Since then, he has starred in the likes of Knives Out, Defending Jacob, Lightyear and The Gray Man; he also had a memorable cameo appearance in Free Guy.

Evans and de Armas have worked together multiple times, including in Knives Out and The Gray Man.

The rest of the Ghosted cast are no slouches, as it includes Amy Sedaris (The Mandalorian), Adrien Brody (Poker Face), Tim Blake Nelson (Poker Face), Tate Donovan (Rocketman) and Mike Moh (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood).
