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.
