A supremely talented actress like her will fit RIGHT in among the rest of this cast!
Jessica Chastain is reportedly in negotiations to appear in the Shane Black-directed third installment of the Iron Man franchise. Jessica will play a "sexy scientist," who is apparently just as smart as the superhero Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr.!
Apparently, the Academy Award nominee was initially the top choice for the part, but she unfortunately couldn't commit due to scheduling conflicts with other projects, including the Kathryn Bigelow-directed Osama Bin Laden movie!
However, she must have been able to work things out, and we couldn't be more excited!
Between she and the other new additions, Ben Kingsley and Guy Pearce, we think we're going to be in for a real treat with this one!
