Jessica Chastain has jumped on board a new action film project called Eve that she will both star in and produce. There are no plot details yet, but it's described as a character study. The movie will be written and directed by Matthew Newton (From Nowhere) and when talking about the film, Chastain and producer Kelly Carmichael said:
“Matthew is wonderfully adept at crafting complex and relatable characters. We’ve been fans of his work and are so thrilled to be partnering with him and Voltage on Eve."
The director of the film also offered up the following statement:
"I have always admired Jessica Chastain’s work. So when I wrote Eve, an intelligent, strong, and incredibly capable character, she was my immediate first choice to bring her to life. I am humbled and thrilled to be collaborating with Jessica and Voltage on the film."
I'm a fan of Jessica Chastain's work. She tends to choose to be a part of strong projects so it'll be great to see how this latest one turns out. The next film we'll see her in is X-Men: Dark Pheonix and she's currently shooting IT: Chapter 2.
