Jessica Chastain seems to be making a turn toward being an action star with Ava out currently on VOD and, in January next year, she teams up with Lupito Nyong’o, Diane Kruger, Penelope Cruz, and (maybe) Bingbing Fan for The 355. Directed by Simon Kinberg, who worked with Chastain previously on the disaster that was Dark Phoenix, Chastain stars as Mason “Mace” Brown, a CIA agent who is give the go-ahead by her superior to go rogue and assemble a team of operatives from other global intelligence agencies to track down a deadly weapon that has fallen into the wrong hands. Nyong’o is a computer specialist, Kruger is a badass German agent and Cruz is psychologist. Sebastian Stan and Edgar Ramirez co-star as well and it looks like a lot of solid action along with some Ocean’s/MI style undercover/heisty stuff. The movie is out on January 15th and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
