Jessica Chastain is bringing her idea for a female-led spy action movie to life in 355, and shooting has commenced.
Chastain took to Twitter with a video that takes us behind the scenes – you can watch it a little further down this very page.
In the same vein as the likes of the Bond and Bourne flicks, the story is set to revolve around a group of international agents and feature a whole lot of action. The idea evolved from much of the research that Chastain conducted for her role in Zero Dark Thirty. She had incredible CIA access, and the film’s title is apparently based on that of one of their agent’s code numbers in the days of the American Revolution.
The cast includes Chastain, of course, along with Lupita Nyong’o, Penelope Cruz, Fan Bingbing, Diane Kruger, Sebastian Stan and Edgar Ramirez.Directorial duties are being handled by X-Men: Dark Phoenix‘s Simon Kinberg.
There’s no release date set as yet for 355.
