Anne Hathaway & Jessica Chastain Transform Into 1960s Housewives on 'Mother's Instinct' Set - First Photos!

Anne Hathaway is back from her trip to the Cannes Film Festival and she’s already at work!

The Oscar-winning actress was spotted looking like a 1960s housewife while filming a scene for the upcoming movie Mother’s Instinct on Thursday (May 26) in Union County, N.J.

Anne was joined on set by her longtime friend and fellow Oscar winner Jessica Chastain, who also is starring in the movie.

Set in the “early ‘60s, it follows best friends and neighbors Alice (Chastain) and Celine (Hathaway), who live an idyllic traditional lifestyle with manicured lawns, successful husbands and sons of the same age. Life’s perfect harmony is suddenly shattered after a tragic accident. Guilt, suspicion and paranoia combine to unravel their sisterly bond, and a psychological battle of wills begins as the maternal instinct reveals its darker side,” according to Deadline.

It was announced a few weeks ago that Neon, the studio behind Oscar winning Parasite, has acquired the rights to the psychological thriller. The movie was first announced in October 2020 and we’re so excited to see it’s finally being made!

Anne Hathaway & Jessica Chastain to Reunite to Play Rival Housewives in 'Mothers' Instinct' Movie

Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain will be reuniting on screen!

The award-winning actresses will be starring in the upcoming movie Mothers’ Instinct, according to Deadline. They previously worked together on the 2014 Christopher Nolan movie Interstellar.

Mothers’ Instinct is a psychological thriller that takes place in the 1960s. It ” will follow best friends and neighbors Alice (Chastain) and Celine (Hathaway) who both live an idyllic traditional lifestyle with manicured lawns, successful husbands and sons of the same age. Life’s perfect harmony is suddenly shattered after a tragic accident. Guilt, suspicion and paranoia combine to unravel their sisterly bond and a psychological battle of wills begins as the maternal instinct reveals its darker side.”

The movie is a remake of the 2018 Belgian movie Duelles, which was directed by Olivier Masset-Depasse. He will also direct the English-language version.

Jessica is producing the movie through her company Freckle Films.

Olivier said in a statement, “It takes actors of Jessica and Anne’s caliber to communicate the intricacy of these two roles. The relationship between a mother and child is the most powerful connection between two human beings. When this bond is severed, it calls into question conventional morality and even sanity. In the behind-closed-doors atmosphere of 1960’s America, Mothers’ Instinct becomes a terrifying, high-pressure powder keg.”

In a new interview, Anne talked about the roles that she wishes she had played.
