We LOVE her! First The Help, now this!
She's on a roll!
Jessica Chastain has been cast in a pivotal role in Tom Cruise's upcoming sci-fi thriller. The project, formerly known as Oblivion and Horizons, centers around a futuristic Earth where people live in the clouds since the ground is inhabitable. Tommy Boy's character is a repairman who is sent back to Earth to fiddle with some droids or something and ends up meeting a woman who changes his world view forever.
Jessica … wil NOT be playing this woman. Actually, she will be playing his lover above ground, the significant other he leaves behind in the clouds to get this job done. Oh, and we hear she is none-to-happy to hear that he beau is shacking up with some chick on the ground.
Oh lordy! Futuristic smackdown! Hell hath no fury like a ginger scorned! She's a fiery one, you know!
Congrats, girl! We're super happy for you!
