As she has proved several times in the past, Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) has a knack for bringing humanity to characters you certainly do not want to mess with. She is set to add to that list with the new drama Miss Sloane, and now EuropaCorp have released our first look her in character.
In Miss Sloane, Chastain plays Elizabeth Sloane, one of the more ruthless and successful political strategists to stalk the halls of Washington. She is a lobbyist employed by big companies and powerful concerns to try to win over politicians and her latest assignment might just be her toughest.
She wades into the attempt to get new gun control legislation pushed through, putting her up against some of the most dangerous opponents she has ever faced and threatening both her job and those few people close to her.
John Madden (Shakespeare In Love) is behind the camera for this one, working from Jonny Perera's script, and the cast also includes Mark Strong (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Beyond The Lights), Michael Stuhlbarg (A Serious Man) and Alison Pill (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World). It will arrive in the US on 9 December, but has yet to confirm a UK release date.
