Jessica Chastain has just landed her next lead feature role. 

The two time Oscar nominee has been cast Losing Clementine, a movie adaption based on Ashley Ream’s acclaimed debut novel of the same name. 

Directing the dramedy is Argentine filmmaker Lucia Puenzo from a script penned by Better Call Saul scribe Ann Cherkis.

The story follows world-renowned artist Clementine Pritchard (Chastain) who gives herself 31 days to tie up loose ends before killing herself. In the process, Pritchard uncovers secrets about her family and a tragedy that impacted her mother and sister. 

Chastain most recently starred in It: Chapter Two. Her next project is a role in an adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s classic A Doll’s House at the Playhouse Theatre in London.
