Jessica Chastain Joins Chris Hemsworth in 'Huntsman' Spinoff!

The cast of the upcoming spinoff The Huntsman is getting better and better – Jessica Chastain has joined the film!

The Oscar-nominated actress joins a cast that includes the returning Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron, as well as the previously announced Emily Blunt in a villain role. Kristen Stewart, who played Snow White in the first film, will not be reprising her role in the spinoff.

Plot details are not known, though the film is expected to reveal “how the fates of two characters, the Huntsman Eric (Hemsworth) and Ravenna (Theron), intersected before they met Snow White,” according to Variety.

The Huntsman is expected to hit theaters on April 22, 2016.

  • carrie

    The paycheck must be huge

  • ned

    Maybe she’s not looking for an Oscar here? Not every role is Oscar bait for her. Hope it’s good–it has some strong actresses in it. Love Chastain and Blunt is good, too.

    Maybe she’s playing his mother! lol

  • mandyz

    does every actor have to go for oscar bait films after they have already been nominated? NO so back off, she’s doing this for fun which more a-list actors and actresses should do instead of doing oscar bait movie after oscar bait movie so they can attempt to rack up oscar awards and be considered “serious actors”. get off your high horse.

    i bet jessica is going to get more plastic surgery for this part, she sure loves it.

    She’s been annoying lately. I rather see Kristen yes I said that ! Jessica is always complaining about not enough roles for women and she’s takes about every role there is. It’s ok if you have at least 3 films a year but this girl has at least 4 films every year.

    So many of her roles are supporting. She isn’t the lead here either. I bet she feels she should do these types of roles before she hits 40–when roles for actresses tend to dry up.
    Women don’t get enough lead roles–only 10% of all movies have women as leads. Women make up 30% of all speaking parts, too.

    Woo–hoo, love to see her in period costume. I bet she’ll be hot. She’s one of my favorites right now, too.
