In accordance with Variety, Jessica will reteam with co-star Octavia Spencer for an untitled comedy:

Jessica Chastain and Octavia Spencer are reuniting for a new film.

The Help” co-stars will lead a holiday comedy for Universal.

Following a heated bidding war, the studio won the rights to the untitled pitch from Chastain’s Freckle Films.

Chastain and Kelly Carmichael wrote the original treatment and “Crazy Rich Asians” scribe Peter Chiarelli is on board to pen the script. Chastain is attached to produce with her company Freckle Films, along with Maven Pictures. Carmichael, Celine Rattray, and Trudie Styler will also produce.

Universal beat out Fox and Paramount for the pitch, which follows two women fighting the elements to make it home for Christmas.

Exec VP of production Erik Baiers and creative executive Mika Pryce will oversee the project for Universal.

The movie marks a re-team for Chastain and Spencer, who each earned an Oscar nomination for the smash hit “The Help,” with Spencer ultimately taking home the trophy for best supporting actress. Since then, the A-listers haven’t stopped garnering praise for their work, with both earning additional Academy Awards noms (Chastain for 2012’s “Zero Dark Thirty” and Spencer for 2016’s “Hidden Figures”).

This award season is no different as Chastain and Spencer are coming off critically acclaimed performances in Aaron Sorkin’s poker drama “Molly’s Game” and Guillermo del Toro’s Cold War fairy tale “The Shape of Water,” respectively.

Chiarelli is best known for writing the hit romantic comedy “The Proposal,” in addition to the upcoming film “Crazy Rich Asians,” set to hit theaters later this year. He is repped UTA, Mosaic, and Morris Yorn Barnes Levine Krintzman Rubenstein Kohner & Gellman.

Chastain — who is repped by CAA, Mosaic, and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush, Kaller & Gellman — can be seen next in “X-Men: Dark Phoenix.”

Spencer recently wrapped production on the indie “A Kid Like Jake.” She is repped by WME and Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum Morris & Klein.

Jessica Chastain in on the cover of ‘The Wall Street Journal’ Magazine. Chastain, who was photographed by Annemarieke Van Drimmelen, gave a interview to the February issue for where she talks about gender equality and promote Molly’s Game. The magazine also brings quotes from Molly Bloom herself, Aaron Sorkin, Idris Elba and Melissa Silverstein, founder of Women and Hollywood, an initiative that advocates for gender equity in the entertainment industry and named Jessica as a co-chair for its 10th anniversary celebration last fall.

You can find interview in our press archive and the photoshoot in our gallery.

As Molly, Jessica Chastain delivers an unforgettable performance that earned her a Golden Globe nomination for best performance by an actress in a motion picture. The movie was written and directed by Aaron Sorkin, who was nominated for best screenplay. But neither of them dreamed up the film’s heroine—a real-life entrepreneur who recounted her adrenaline-fueled journey in the 2014 memoir called Molly’s Game: From Hollywood’s Elite to Wall Street’s Billionaire Boys Club, My High-Stakes Adventure in the World of Underground Poker.

Although she had lived the story, Bloom was stunned by the character Chastain created on camera. “I was blown away,” says Bloom. “To see how powerful Jessica is and how nuanced she is in communicating the things I was feeling—I just thought she was incredible. My family and close friends were like, ‘It was like watching you on-screen.’
