Jessica attends Empire Awards

Jessica attended earlier today in London the Jameson Empire Awards, an annual British awards ceremony honoring cinematic achievements in the local and global film industry. She was there to deliver the Empire Inspiration Award to director Christopher Nolan, and was looking gorgeous in an Oscar de la Renta dress. I have added the first batch of pictures (many thanks to Bubbles and Heather for their help with some of them).

Off Camera with Sam Jones, featuring Jessica Chastain

Back in November 2014 Jessica guest starred in an episode of ‘Off Camera with’ by photographer Sam Jones, that originally aired on DirecTV’s Audience channel.

The magazine can also be acquired on their official online shop.

To celebrate Jessica’s birthday updating the site with something special, I’ve acquired the episode and print myself and added screencaptures/digital scans in our gallery. Enjoy!

Jessica Will Get Offered “Ms. Sloane” Lead?

Deadline is reporting that director John Madden is in talks to direct “Ms. Sloane” and they are also reporting that Jessica is being eyed for the lead.

Director John Madden, coming off the success of helming his sequel The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, is in negotiations to direct Ms. Sloane, an original script from first-time screenwriter Jonathan Perera that centers on a lobbyist who takes on the powerful gun lobby to push through federal gun control legislation.

This is early days on this project, which would be produced and financed by FilmNation Entertainment. I’m hearing, though, that if the deal is made, the first call will be to Jessica Chastain, who co-starred with Madden on his 2010 drama The Debt. She would play the lead, the seasoned lobbyist who, with her small team of politicos, attempts to pass the hot-button legislation into federal law while going up against well-financed and unscrupulous members of the gun lobby.
