Jessica attended today the Cannes Opening Gala Ceremony, looking marvelous in a yellow Armani dress. I have added the first batch of images, which you can see in our gallery.
A new project has been announced for Jessica, and this time is a comedy! She is attached to star in Plus One, a comedy following a single woman (Chastain), who realizes she has limited choices in girlfriends who can join her on the single’s scene because all of her close friends are married or about to be. She finds an unlikely wingman in Cecily Strong’s loud, sexually uninhibited livewire.
April Prosser has written the script with Patrick Brice (The Overnight) directing. Gloria Sanchez Productions, which is dedicated to women-led film and TV projects, is producing. The project is not yet set up but has a number of companies circling.
Deadline is reporting.
Jessica attended today in New York the Jazz At Lincoln Center 2016 Gala. She was joined by boyfriend Gian Luca, and have posted a photo on her Instagram.
Ae have added the first batch of pictures of her arrivals. Enjoy!
Jessica Chastain will star the Aron Sorkin’s directorial debut “Molly’s Game”, pairing with english actor Idris Elba, The Playlist is reporting. Jessica will play Molly Bloom, a beautiful, young, Olympic-class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being arrested in the middle of the night by 17 FBI agents wielding automatic weapons. Her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business titans and finally, unbeknownst to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally is her criminal defense lawyer (Elba), who learns that there’s much more to Molly than the tabloids lead us to believe.
The project, which is based on Bloom’s memoir of the same name, hails from the Mark Gordon Company and Entertainment One, who are co-financing the project. Gordon is producing with Amy Pascal of Pascal Pictures, while Leopoldo Gout will serve as an executive producer.
Sony pulled out of the project for US distribution, and Sierra/Affinity will launch international sales at Cannes.
“The casting of Jessica and Idris in the two lead roles is any filmmaker’s dream come true,” Sorkin said in a statement. “They’re two of the greatest actors of their generation, paired for the first time, and their chemistry will be electric.”
Jessica Chastain poses for photos as she arrives on the red carpet at the 2016 Met Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 2) in New York City. She stepped out in a stunning voluminous Prada gown, Brian Atwood shoes and Piaget jewelry for the annual Costume Institute Gala Benefit.
Jessica donned a peacock blue silk gabardine gown with a structured bodice and voluminous skirt enriched with 18th century inspired black crystal embroidery in floral and latticework motifs. Check the first batch of HQ pictures added in our gallery:
I updated the gallery with a portrait Jessica did last year when visiting Despierta America with Guillermo Del Toro to promote Crimson Peak.
