Two-time Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain has emerged as one of Hollywood’s most sought after actresses of her generation. She can currently be seen in Niki Caro’s The Zookeeper’s Wife and most recently starred in John Madden’s Miss Sloane, which earned Chastain her fourth Golden Globe Award nomination. She has received numerous nominations and accolades for her work, following riveting performances in Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty, A Most Violent Year, indie darling The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, and Ridley Scott’s The Martian. Chastain launched Freckle Films, a new production venture alongside transatlantic financing-production banner Maven Pictures. She is currently in production for Susanna White’s period drama Woman Walks Ahead and will be seen in Xavier Dolan’s The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, as well as Aaron Sorkin’s Molly’s Game.
