Jessica Chastain is quite good at picking movies, as while they don’t always make big bucks at the box office, they’re nearly always worth a watch. Now she’s got a new one, as Variety reports the Mama and Zero Dark Thirty actress is up for A Most Violent Year, starring opposite Javier Bardem, with JC Chandor (Margin Call) directing.
No official plot details have been released for the movie, although a fansite for the director says that, ‘Bardem will reportedly play the ‘good guy’, an ambitious businessman who is forced to deal with a corrupt establishment in 1980s New York.’
Even that could be wrong, as Chandor is keeping his cards very close to his chest on this one, and there’s absolutely no word on who Chastain will play. She’s always a good choice though, so hopefully she’ll bring some class to the proceedings.
It’s suggested the film will start shooting in New York next month.
