Jessica Chastain to Produce Series Adaptation of Alice Feeney Novel ‘His & Hers’

Jessica Chastain to Produce Series Adaptation of Alice Feeney Novel ‘His & Hers’

VARIETY 

Jessica Chastain’s Freckle Films, Kristen Campo, and Endeavor Content have acquired the television rights for Alice Feeney’s new novel “His & Hers.”

The novel tells the story of DCI Jack Harper and BBC newsreader Anna Andrews, whose paths cross for the first time following their divorce when a woman is found murdered in their hometown. Anna is reluctant to cover the case and Jack becomes suspicious of her involvement, until he becomes a suspect in his own murder investigation.

Chastain and Kelly Carmichael will executive produce for Freckle Films, with Campo also serving as executive producer. No network or streaming service is currently attached.

This marks the second time one of Feeney’s novels has been optioned for television. Her debut work, “Sometimes I Lie,” is currently in development at Fox with producers Ellen DeGeneres and Warner Bros. Television and with Sarah Michelle Gellar attached to star.

“The last three years have been such a wonderful whirlwind and I’m still pinching myself,” Feeney said. “I’m so thrilled to be working with Jessica Chastain, Kristen Campo, and the team at Endeavor Content. I love what they have planned for ‘His & Hers,’ and I can’t wait to see Anna Andrews and Jack Harper brought to life on screen.”

Freckle Films is currently in post-production on the film “355,” a spy thriller based on an original idea by Chastain with the Oscar nominee also starring. The company is also producing Chastain’s “The Eyes of Tammy Faye,” based on the documentary of the same name. Other projects include “The Division” at Netflix and a series in development at ITV and Sony Television.

Campo’s recent producing credits include “The L Word: Generation Q” at Showtime and the Apple dramas “See” and “Truth Be Told.”

The book rights were repped by ICM Partners, as well as Luke Speed of Curtis Brown on behalf of Jonny Geller of Curtis Brown. Freckle Films is repped by CAA. Campo is repped by WME.

Jessica Chastain welcomes first baby with husband Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo

Jessica Chastain welcomes first baby with husband Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo

Hello guys! After some speculation we finally have the confirmation that Jessica has become a mother ♥ She was seen with baby Giulietta going to the set of her new movie and in the streets of Boston and New York, we are very happy for Jessica and Gian and we wish all happiness the new family!

Page Six

Jessica Chastain and her husband Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo have a new bundle of joy.

The actress, 41, and Passi de Preposulo welcomed baby Giulietta Passi Chastain via surrogate, Page Six has learned.

The now-family-of-three was spotted on the Upper East Side this week on their way to a pediatrician’s office. Chastain carried Giuletta in a baby carrier as they walked the streets of New York and were joined by a woman who is possibly the baby’s nanny.

The “Zero Dark Thirty” star, who is known to keep her personal life private, was also seen pushing a stroller in Boston a month ago while filming her upcoming movie, “Eve.”

We’re told the baby girl is about four months old – and is already quite the traveler. She joined her mom and dad in Paris, as Chastain appeared at an inaugural Christmas tree lighting ceremony at the upscale department store Galeries Lafayette last week.

Chastain and Passi de Preposulo — a fashion exec who comes from a well-known family in Italy — tied the knot in 2017.

A rep for the actress did not immediately respond to our request for comment

Interview: Jessica Chastain for Grazia France

We translated Jessica’s interview to Grazia France. In the interview she talks about Time’s Up, her support for movements that support women, about becoming a producer and about her role in ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix‘.

Actress, fighter and muse to Piaget jewelry, Jessica Chastain turned out to be a spokesperson precious of the female cause.Interview with a modern heroine.

I know you, come here! Jessica Chastain draws me in her arms. This is the sixth time we’ve interviewed the American actress. “I remember the first time, you were pregnant! “, she says. She’s right, it was our first interview, in Deauville in 2014, where she was receiving a tribute. But our first meeting actually dates from February 2012. A villa on the heights of Los Angeles, at a party in honor of Sofia Coppola who had realized the commercial of the Marni collection for H & M. Wandered around the different rooms of the house were Drew Barrymore, Winona Ryder, Liv Tyler. Bryan Ferry was giving a private concert. And then we noticed this sublime redhead actress, sitting on an armchair in the entrance. Alone. Without a photographer to annoy her. Without publicist to make barrage. So we went forward to tell her how much we loved “The Tree of Life“, movie by Terrence Malick who unveiled it to the world in Cannes a few months earlier, where he had won the Palme d’Or. She smiled and blushed. “It was the moment I took aware that my life was changing. It was very exciting,“she recalls. Jessica Chastain did not imagine not then how much. Seven years have passed, two Oscar nominations, a Golden Globe win, collaborations with the greatest directors  –Kathryn BigelowRidley ScottChristopher NolanGuillermo del Toro,Jeff Nichols -, the launch of her own production company Freckle Films. And even a video with Jay-Z,‘Family Feud‘, released in January and directed by Ava DuVernay. (Read more)

Jessica Chastain Celebrates Wrapping Filming on ‘It: Chapter Two’

Jessica Chastain Celebrates Wrapping Filming on ‘It: Chapter Two’

Jessica Chastain recently revealed that she has wrapped filming on the upcoming horror sequel, through a series of posts on her Instagram stories. You can check out the various snapshots, where Chastain poses with various crew members, including director Andy Muschietti, below.

It’s safe to assume that Chastain’s posts mean that filming has wrapped for her part, and not that production on It: Chapter Two has wrapped as a whole.

It: Chapter Two will see Chastain playing the older incarnation of Beverly Marsh, as the “Losers Club” reunite in Derry, Pennsylvania as adults.

Joining Chastain in IT: Chapter Two are James McAvoy, Bill Hader, Jay Ryan, Isaiah Mustafa, Teach Grant, and Andy Bean, as well as Bill Skarsgard as the villainous Pennywise.

IT: Chapter Two is set to hit theaters on September 6, 2019.
