Jessica Chastain has signed on to star in the two-hander comedy PLUS ONE from The Weinstein Company and Gloria Sanchez Productions. The studio is interested in Amy Schumer to play her co-star. Written by April Prosser, the story follows a woman named Rachel that finds herself lost after coming out of a long term relationship. With all of her closest friends married, she has no choice but to turn to her wild and crude acquaintance Summer to be her wing-woman and get her back into the dating scene.
Jessica Elbaum, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are set to produce the comedy, along with Harvey Weinstein. Sources confirm that the Weinstein Co. is waiting to land a director until after Chastain’s co-star is officially cast.

“Through Interstellar and watching the fun that Annie [Hathaway] and Matt [Damon] had playing astronauts, I thought I really want to do that,” Chastain tells PEOPLE. “It was about two weeks later, Ridley called me and asked me if I would play an astronaut in his next film, The Martian – I jumped at the chance of course.”
To research her role, Chastain spent time at the famed Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, where she met and learned from the people behind the Curiosity Rover. She even got to spend some time on the red planet, via virtual reality:
“I got to see all the maps of Mars, and participate in an 3D virtual reality perspective,” she says. “It was incredible, as soon as I put the glasses on, I felt like I was really there on Mars. Whether I looked left or right, it felt like I was there with actual images all around me. It was a fantastic way to imagine what it would be like to be on that planet.”
“I need to do another film with Matt, because we have very little scenes together in this film, and he is a pleasure to work with,” she said. “I have been a fan of his work for so long – everything fromGood Will Hunting to The Informant. He is just brilliant, and I think his performance in The Martian is going to blow people away, to see him as they have never seen him. It is exciting for me to watch.”
The Martian is out on Nov. 25.

The choice of something unique
The Possession ring cultivates its uniqueness with its powerful aesthetics and sensory magic. This unique character echoes the expectations of today’s woman – a city girl free of all dictates, who changes from denim to cocktail wear in a blink of an eye, just like Jessica Chastain, international ambassador for the Maison Piaget. Captivated by the new Possession ring, the flamboyant actress adopted it immediately.
“I love the Possession ring. Ever since I’ve worn rings, I’ve always been the girl who likes to turn my rings on my fingers. And how incredible that it’s actually designed to turn! It feels playful and as I wear it, I am constantly in a meditative state. I am always turning it. It is very addictive”.
