Hollywood actress Jessica Chastain will star in a character-driven action film titled “Eve” and will produce it through her Freckle Films production company with Voltage Pictures.
Although the plot is still kept under wraps, the film will be directed by Matthew Newton, who had recently made “Who We Are Now” starring Julianne Nicholson, Emma Roberts and Zach Quinto. His film had gone on to premiere last year at the Toronto Film Festival.
In a statement earlier, Jessica and Kelly Carmichael of Freckle Films said: “Matthew is wonderfully adept at crafting complex and relatable characters.  We’ve been fans of his work and are so thrilled to be partnering with him and Voltage on ‘Eve.’”
Another producer Nicolas Chartier said, “Matt Newton wrote a wonderful new character in ‘Eve’ and Jessica Chastain will once again deliver an amazing performance.”
Jessica was last seen in “Molly’s Game,” Aaron Sorkin’s feature directorial debut. She will join the X-Men film series in “Dark Phoenix” as an alien shapeshifter and will play the adult Beverly Marsh in “It: Chapter 2.” She will also star as Tammy Wynette opposite Josh Brolin’s George Jones in “George and Tammy.”
She was nominated for Academy Awards for “The Help” and “Zero Dark Thirty.”
