Actress Jessica Chastain got the lead role as Elizabeth Sloane in Miss Sloane, the upcoming drama movie directed by John Madden based on a script by Jonathan Perera. Two pictures from the set:
“A ruthless and highly successful political strategist, Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), exposes the cutthroat world of D.C lobbyists on both sides of the gun control debate. New legislation requiring more stringent background checks for gun ownership is gaining traction in Congress, and Sloane is approached to spearhead the campaign, pitting her against the formidable power of her political opponents. Deploying her notorious skills – and driven by a desire to win at all costs – she jeopardizes those closest to her, and puts her own career at risk. MISS SLOANE is a riveting political thriller that delves into the complexities of one of the most pressing and fiercely-fought issues in contemporary America.”
Well, she’s definitely facing an uphill battle…
Besides Jessica Chastain, the cast also includes Jake Lacy, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Alison Pill, Mark Strong, Michael Stuhlbarg, Noah Robbins, Lucy Owens, Meghann Fahy, and Chuck Shamata.
