The first set pictures and stills from Liv Ullmann’s upcoming stage-to-screen adaptation of August Stringberg’s Miss Julie have just been leaked by ScreenDaily, showcasing film stars Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell in full costume and in action. Shooting on the film recently wrapped in Nortern Ireland, with Ullmann directing from her own script.
No release date has yet been set, but MISS JULIE is expected to be released sometime later this year, certainly in time for the winter awards season.
Chastain was “first choice” as Miss Julie. She signed on prior to starring in Zero Dark Thirty, swiftly followed by Morton. “If you’re a young actress and serious about your craft, the chance to work with Liv Ullmann doesn’t come along too often,” says Dungey. Farrell was the last piece of casting, coming on board at the start of 2013. “These actors are sensational,” says Ullmann. “You will see Colin like I’ve never seen him, and I’ve seen him really good.”
Jessica is covering another international magazine, this time French ‘Grazia’. There’s no new picture, the picture used on cover was done to 2011 Instyle, and the inside picture is that amazing new Yves Saint Laurent promo. We’ll try to bring you the article translated, if anyone could contribute please email me at luciana @ jessica-chastain.com – credits will be given.
We came across this beautiful picture (thanks to Glossy Newstands) of Jessica on current Vogue Italy, at the Beauty Supplement. Its another picture of the Yves Saint Laurent Beauté promotion. Check the full size, plus another new picture, in our gallery.
Almost fifty years ago, Elizabeth Taylor brought the magic and wonder of Cleopatra to film, thanks to her portrayal of the Egyptian goddess in the epic film. Now, in celebration of the anniversary, Cleopatra planned to partner with Bulgari to air the movie at the Cannes Film Festival in full—all four hours and eight minute of it!
In the midst of the millions of dollars and years spent creating the majestic tale two monumentous relationships were created: “Le Scandale” between Taylor and Richard Burton and what would turn into an ongoing partnership between the couple and Bulgari. Her collection of jewels from the Italian house is a wonder to review, cultivated with no expense spared. As Burton famously once said of his beautiful wife, “The only word in Italian she knows is Bulgari.”
In lieu of the beauty that was Taylor, Jessica Chastain has been tapped to host the screening at Cannes, wearing four different pieces by Bulgari during two different scenarios. (Source)
Deadline is reporting that Jessica is joining Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConnaughey on upcoming Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi flick “Interstellar“.
Of course, details are being kept quiet but we do that the movie originates from a long developing script by Jonathan Nolan, with Chris pouring his own special sauce on it with a rewrite, in a movie that will deal with time travel and alternate dimensions, telling the story of a group of explorers who go through a wormhole.

Shooting begins later this year in IMAX and movie is set to open on November 7, 2014.
