With Simon Kinberg’s 355 still waiting in the wings, actress and producer Jessica Chastain has already advanced as of late last month with the production of Eve. The character driven action drama which sees Chastain as an assassin on the run from her former employers, is now adding actresses Joan Chen (Tigertail, Netflix series Marco Polo, Lust Caution) and Academy Award-winner Geena Davis (The Long Kiss Goodnight, Thelma and Louise).
Eve hails from Voltage Pictures and Chastain’s Freckle Films production banner with Tate Taylor (The Help, The Girl on the Train) in the director’s chair. Currently rounding out the cast are Golden Globe-winner Colin Farrell (The Lobster, Seven Psychopaths, Minority Report), Academy Award-winner Common (The Hate U Give, Selma) and Academy Award-nominee John Malkovich (Deepwater Horizon, In the Line of Fire, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile).
Voltage is fully financing Eve as and will handle international sales. Nicolas Chartier and Dominic Rustam are producing for Voltage, alongside Freckle Films’ Chastain and Kelly Carmichael. Jonathan Deckter, John Norris, Erika Hampson, and William Earon are serving as executive producers.
