Jessica Chastain and Michael Shannon in photos from Take Shelter
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Jessica Chastain (who will appear will Brad Pitt in next year’s THE TREE OF LIFE) and Michael Shannon (REVOLUTIONARY ROAD and HBO’s Boardwalk Empire) are working together on a psychological thriller entitled TAKE SHELTER from director Jeff Nichols. The story follows a married couple and their young daughter whose lives are strained because the husband is preparing for an apocalypse. After he has some very real dreams he starts building a bomb shelter and taking precautions to help his family survive. The film will premiere next month at the Sundance Film Festival and will probably be released widely sometime later next year.
This sounds very interesting although I’m starting to get really sick of all these apocalyptic films that have been Hollywood’s focus these past two years. It’s enough to get anyone extremely paranoid, depressed and very squeamish (anyone remember that cannibal scene from THE ROAD-ugh).
