Added a beautiful portrait taken during Independent Spirit Awards:
Various media outlets, including Variety, are reporting that Jessica has closed a deal to join “The Huntsman” spinoff:
Jessica Chastain has closed a deal to join Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron in Universal’s “The Huntsman.”
Emily Blunt is also set to join the cast. Cedric Nicolas-Troyan is directing the pic, with Joe Roth producing and Palak Patel exec producing.
Plot details are vague beyond that the film reveals how the fates of two characters, the Huntsman Eric (Hemsworth) and Ravenna, intersected before they met Snow White. Details on Chastain’s character are also vague.
Frank Darabont, who was previously attached to direct before falling off, wrote the current draft of the screenplay, with earlier drafts by Craig Mazin and Evan Spiliotopoulos.
The pic is set to bow on April 22, 2016. Universal’s vice president of production Maradith Frenkel and creative executive Chloe Yellin will oversee the project for the studio.
More pictures of Jessica last night at the Oscar (including the Vanity Fair party in which she attended with a different dress) was uploaded in our gallery.
To celebrate the Oscar weekend, Kelly and Michael aired on their talk show a special clip with some award nominees/winners talking about their memories from the Oscar. Jessica is one of them, and you can watch the video in our archive thanks to my friend Colleen who recorded it for us.
After wrapping The Martian – as announced by her on Instagram, Jessica is back to Los Angeles. She will be one of the presenters tomorrow at the Oscar, and also is one of the nominees on today’s Spirit Awards – which you will be able to watch LIVE on IFC later today (check your current location for geo restrictions!). You can expect full coverage on both events.
Last night, Jessica and Gian Luca attended the Academy celebration to Foreign Language Films, and you can find some pictures uploaded in our gallery. Enjoy!
Back in 2011, James Franco decided to make a project based on Pulitzer prize-winning poet CK Williams’ collection. The film would be named Tar, and joined on its cast James himself, Mila Kunis, Jessica Chastain, Henry Hopper, and Zach Braff. After four years the film was released (on UK under the name Forever Love, and on US under the name The Color of Time), and I have added screencaptures in our gallery, plus three scenes with Jessica in our video archive.
The first trailer for Crimson Peak was just released and while you cannot see my excitement from your sit, I’m sure you share it with me. It looks terrific!
