Jessica Chastain channels Frank Underwood in her new political thriller


“I was hired to win and I’ll use whatever resources I have.”

Miss Sloane stars Jessica Chastain as ruthless lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane who’s hired to play her part in the anti-gun lobby.

Breaking the fourth wall, Elizabeth Sloane is seen as cold, calculating and most of all smarter than everyone in the room in a similar way to Kevin Spacey’s Frank Underwood in House of Cards.

Jessica Chastain is no stranger to playing complicated, layer female characters with her turns in Zero Dark Thirty and A Most Violent Year. Helmed by British director John Madden who’s most notable for his Exotic Marigold Hotel films and Shakespeare in Love. Genuis composer Max Richter who has written the score for Waltz with Bashir, Hope and Soundproof sets the tone for this dramatic political thriller.

Miss Sloane, which is in cinemas December 9th, made the 2015 blacklist of best unproduced scripts and is coming out during the political elections at a time when the scrutiny of women in politics is at an all time high. Plus the subject of gun control and the people on either side of it will always be cause for uproar, Miss Sloane could easily create enough controversy to get itself noticed by the Academy.
