Jessica Chastain to play Miss Julie

Jan 31 2013, 4:18am CST | by

Jessica Chastain will star in 'Miss Julie'.

The 31-year-old actress has landed the lead opposite Colin Farrell in Liv Ullmann's big screen version of August Strindberg's play about an upper class woman who falls for her servant.

The story is set over the course of one night at a Swedish count's estate in 1874 and centres around the count's daughter, the titular Miss Julie, who is desperate to escape her rigid existence.

She decides to abandon high society rules by attending a party thrown by her staff, and finds herself charmed by a senior servant named Juan (Colin).

Samantha Morton has also been cast as the household cook, Christine.

In-demand actress Jessica has been nominated for a second Oscar for her role as CIA agent Maya in Kathryn Bigelow's 'Zero Dark Thirty' and has starred in a whopping seven films since her first 2011 Academy Award nomination for 'The Help'.

She can currently be seen in Guillermo del Toro's terrifying horror flick 'Mama' and is due to feature in 'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby' opposite James McAvoy later this year.

Colin Farrell most recently starred in 'Seven Psychopaths' and will appear in 2013's 'Dead Man Down', 'A Winter's Tale' and 'Saving Mr Banks'.

Brad Pitt Isn’t Even Perturbed By a Disruption on ‘Between Two Ferns’

Oct 23 2014 3:00pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

The latest victim, er, guest for Zach Galifianakis on his fictional talk show Between Two Ferns is Brad Pitt. You could cut the tension with a knife! Will Galifianakis botch his guest’s name? Will he ask awkward questions, and reveal too much about himself in the process? I think you know the answer to this question, but as with any good piece of storytelling, spoilers don’t matter. It’s not what happens, but how. OK, it actually is about what happens, b ...
