Jessica Chastain will star in the character-drive action movie “Eve” and will produce through her Freckle Films production company with Voltage Pictures.
Matthew Newton, who wrote the script, will also direct the picture. Plot details are being kept under wraps.
Newton most recently directed “Who We Are Now,” starring Julianne Nicholson, Emma Roberts and Zach Quinto, which FilmRise picked up after it premiered last year at the Toronto Film Festival.
Nicolas Chartier and Dominic Rustam will produce alongside Chastain and her partner Kelly Carmichael of Freckle Films. Newton will also produce. Jonathan Deckter will serve as executive producer with Babacar Diene serving as co-producer.
Chastain and Carmichael said in a joint statement, “Matthew is wonderfully adept at crafting complex and relatable characters. We’ve been fans of his work and are so thrilled to be partnering with him and Voltage on ‘Eve.’”
