Jessica Chastain to Play Tammy Faye Bakker in Movie with Andrew Garfield

Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield are set to star in the upcoming biopic The Eyes of Tammy Faye.

The film will tell the story of televangelists Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, who will be played by the two stars.

The couple rose to fame in the 1970s and 80s when they launched the world’s largest religious broadcasting network and they were known for their message of love and acceptance.

“However, it wasn’t long before financial improprieties, scheming rivals, and sexual scandal tore their marriage apart and toppled their carefully constructed empire,” Variety reports.

Jessica is one of the producers on the project and the film will be directed by The Big Sick‘s Michael Showalter.
