Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Jessica Chastain is starting to establish herself as a legit Hollywood star. Recently she appeared alongside Brad Pitt in the Terrence Malick film THE TREE OF LIFE, and next month she’ll be starring in THE HELP alongside an outstanding female cast that includes: Emma Stone, Bryce Dallas Howard, Allison Janney, Sissy Spacek and Academy Award nominated actress Viola Davis. She also just wrapped up work on THE WETTEST COUNTY IN THE WORLD, so what’s a girl to do to keep the ball rolling and move her career even further ahead? Well, working with Guillermo de Toro definitely won’t hurt.
Looks like Ms. Chastain is eyeing a role in the upcoming film MAMA, which is a story based on a short Spanish film from Andres Muschetti. The story follows a pair of girls who are dealing with a ghost, whom they think is their dead mother. No word on when this will get started or who exactly is directing, but it is definitely on the horizon.
