First ‘Eve’ Image Reveals Jessica Chastain’s Badass Assassin

First ‘Eve’ Image Reveals Jessica Chastain’s Badass Assassin

Collider

Exact plot details are still scarce on Eve, the action flick starring and produced by Jessica Chastain, but if the bloody official first look image from Voltage Pictures is any indication things do not go well for the two-time Oscar nominee.

Tate Taylor (The Girl on the Train) is directing a script from Who We Are Now writer Matthew Newton, who was originally slated to direct himself before dropping out amid reports of his 2007 domestic violence charges. Chastain will both produce and star as Eve, an assassin on the run from her own former employers. Here’s the official logline, courtesy of Voltage.

Eve (Jessica Chastain) is a deadly assassin who works for a black ops organization, traveling the globe specializing in high profile hits. When a job goes dangerously wrong she is forced to fight for her own survival.

Joining Chastain on the project is Colin Farrell, who is coming off Steve McQueen‘s Oscar-buzzy heist drama Widows. Chastain has a hefty slate of high-profile projects in front of her; the actress is currently shooting Andy Muschietti‘s It: Chapter Two alongside Bill Hader and James McAvoy, and is also set to appear in next year’s X-Men blockbuster Dark Phoenix from writer/director Simon Kinberg.

Nicolas Chartier and Dominic Rustam are producing Eve for Voltage Pictures, with Chastain and Kelly Carmichael co-producing for Freckle Films. Jonathan DeckterJohn NorrisErika Hampson, and William Earon are on-board as executive producers.

“Matt Newton wrote a wonderful new character in Eve and Jessica Chastain will once again deliver an amazing performance,” Chartier said in a statement back when the film was first announced.

Check out the image below. Voltage Pictures is set to shop around Eve—which also stars John MalkovichGeena DavisCommon, and Joan Chen—to buyers at the 2018 American Film Market, which runs from October 31 to November 7.

Actress, fighter and muse to Piaget jewelry, Jessica Chastain turned out to be a spokesperson precious of the female cause.Interview with a modern heroine.

I know you, come here! Jessica Chastain draws me in her arms. This is the sixth time we’ve interviewed the American actress. “I remember the first time, you were pregnant! “, she says. She’s right, it was our first interview, in Deauville in 2014, where she was receiving a tribute. But our first meeting actually dates from February 2012. A villa on the heights of Los Angeles, at a party in honor of Sofia Coppola who had realized the commercial of the Marni collection for H & M. Wandered around the different rooms of the house were Drew Barrymore, Winona Ryder, Liv Tyler. Bryan Ferry was giving a private concert. And then we noticed this sublime redhead actress, sitting on an armchair in the entrance. Alone. Without a photographer to annoy her. Without publicist to make barrage. So we went forward to tell her how much we loved “The Tree of Life“, movie by Terrence Malick who unveiled it to the world in Cannes a few months earlier, where he had won the Palme d’Or. She smiled and blushed. “It was the moment I took aware that my life was changing. It was very exciting,“she recalls. Jessica Chastain did not imagine not then how much. Seven years have passed, two Oscar nominations, a Golden Globe win, collaborations with the greatest directors  –Kathryn BigelowRidley ScottChristopher NolanGuillermo del Toro,Jeff Nichols -, the launch of her own production company Freckle Films. And even a video with Jay-Z,‘Family Feud‘, released in January and directed by Ava DuVernay. (Read more)

Jessica Chastain Celebrates Wrapping Filming on ‘It: Chapter Two’

Jessica Chastain Celebrates Wrapping Filming on ‘It: Chapter Two’

Jessica Chastain recently revealed that she has wrapped filming on the upcoming horror sequel, through a series of posts on her Instagram stories. You can check out the various snapshots, where Chastain poses with various crew members, including director Andy Muschietti, below.

It’s safe to assume that Chastain’s posts mean that filming has wrapped for her part, and not that production on It: Chapter Two has wrapped as a whole.

It: Chapter Two will see Chastain playing the older incarnation of Beverly Marsh, as the “Losers Club” reunite in Derry, Pennsylvania as adults.

Joining Chastain in IT: Chapter Two are James McAvoy, Bill Hader, Jay Ryan, Isaiah Mustafa, Teach Grant, and Andy Bean, as well as Bill Skarsgard as the villainous Pennywise.

IT: Chapter Two is set to hit theaters on September 6, 2019.
