According to Herald.ie Jessica is no longer working on The Secret Scripture.

Cork-born Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain were initially cast for the film, but both had to pull out due to scheduling difficulties.

Jessica was announced back in November and since then sporadic cast updates has been released, including the upcoming date for start shooting, that will be in September.

Still waiting for more sources to announce (or deny) it. If it’s true, will be sad. There’s a really great cast attached to it.

Since Jim Sheridan (the new director) was announced, The Secret Scripture seems to have started to fall apart.
