Jessica Chastain Joins 'Miss Julie' with Colin Farrell!

Jessica Chastain Joins 'Miss Julie' with Colin Farrell!

Jessica Chastain carries a green bag while entering the Walter Kerr Theatre for her matinee performance of The Heiress on Wednesday (January 30) in New York City.

The night before, the Zero Dark Thirty actress, in a Missoni coat, was spotted taking the time to sign autographs and pose for pics with fans, who were waiting outside for her after her evening show.

It was just announced that Jessica will be joining Colin Farrell in the upcoming film Miss Julie.

The film will be based on a play that “took place in 1874 at the estate of the Count of Sweden, and follows a woman trying to escape an existence cramped by social mores who is suddenly drawn to a senior servant and a battle of the sexes ensues,” according to Variety.

FYI: Jessica is carrying the Dolce&Gabbana Miss Sicily Soft Handbag.

    Career suicide… I think she shot to fame too quickly and put too much of herself out there..she is not as coveted as she was after tree of life.. Se makes very odd choices

    @P:

    She has no control over when one of her movies comes out. A movie can be in production for years and some take longer than others. In her case, she filmed “Mama” before she filmed “Zero Dark Thirty” yet the movie was released after ZDT. It’s not the first time a production company takes advantage of an actor’s Hollywood buzz. She also signed up for The Heiress a year and a half before ZDT, which only emphasizes the longevity of a theatre/movie production.

    After following her career and listening to what she has to say about her work, making “odd” movie choices is her intention.

    Personally, sites like Just Jared SHOULD be posting more news of actors like Jessica Chastain, instead of so-called “celebrities” whose biggest dilemma is fighting off sex tape scandals and grueling days at Starbucks.

    Colin Farrell hasnt had a hit movie in like forever, and this type of movie won’t draw a mass audience, but I’m sure she knows this.

    @ha ha: I actually think Colin Farrell is absolutely perfect to play the footman in Miss Julie. He looks very sexy in disheveled period movie clothing. He looked and was great in “The new world.”

    @ha ha: And I think that actors who just want to play in hit movies that draw mass audiences don’t deserve much respect. “Hit movies” only occasionally correspond to “quality movies.”

    I never said CF aint good looking, but for some reason, he’s not the BO draw he once was, unfortunately.

    @Lou:

    But if JC wants to remain in the spotlight, being in popular movies is the way to go. It draws all ages. What teen or young adult is going to see Miss Julie, unless the young individual is into literature and such? JMO.

    I think this is a great vehicle for her, plus Colin Farrell (while not many of his films have been the greatest) is still terrific! She’s definitely interested in making different types of films and not necessarily big blockbusters. So far, they have all varied quite a bit and I can see her continuing down this path – she simply isn’t the type to take on a silly romantic comedy for example – she’s beyond that and will hopefully continue to raise the bar for herself and others:)

    thank god, real actors should never be in stupid romcoms…….

    More news about her? WHY? She is here EVERYDAY!
    “she simply isn’t the type to take on a silly romantic comedy for example”
    No, she is the type to take on silly and BAD movies like The Help and Mama. lol

    @ha ha: That depends on what kind of movie parents persuade their children to watch. I remember loving an older version of the TV series “The Borgias” when I was about 10 years old and I have always loved period dramas and found super hero movies quite hallow since I was a very young teen. But, maybe in Europe we are more into that stuff. I don’t know.

    I’m willing to see everythink Chastain is in. And the oddest her choices will be the more excited I’ll be.
    I genuinely think she’s a tremendous actress, a serious actress that spend more time acting than hitting the gym. Just saying.

    The paps wait outside of her theatre. Why hasn’t she been papped anywhere else then with the expection of award shows?

    Ang Says:

    Miss Julie is a great play, but isn’t she a bit old to play Julie? Julie is supposed to be in her mid twenties and Jessica is ten years older. Anyway i’m looking forward to this project.
    Liv Ullman is directing, so that makes it a must see for me.

    Love her as an actress and as a human being. Read her Guardian interview when she talked about being a poor actor trying to make it in cinema.
