Chastain recently wrapped production on the psychological thriller Mothers’ Instinct, in which she stars opposite Anne Hathaway and on the Michel Franco directed, Memory, opposite Peter Sarsgaard.

Previously, she could be seen in the onstage theater production of Salome with Al Pacino; the highly successful horror film, It Chapter 2; Aaron Sorkin’s film adaptation of Molly’s Game opposite Idris Elba, which earned her a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama; Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar with Matthew McConaughey; the Academy Award nominated drama Tree of Life opposite Brad Pitt and Sean Penn; and Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty, which earned her the 2013 Critics’ Choice Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Actress and an Academy Award nomination.

In addition to her acclaimed work as an actor, Chastain launched Freckle Films, a New York based film and television production company, in 2016. In addition to The 355, The Eyes of Tammy Faye, Mothers’ Instinct, and the upcoming limited series, “George & Tammy,” Freckle Films is currently developing a series adaptation of the novel His & Hers written by Alice Feeney alongside Endeavor Content as well as The School For Good Mothers written by Jessamine Chan.
