Jessica Chastain Offered Role In MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 5?

Jessica Chastain Offered Role In MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 5?

She's said to be nearing a deal to play Marilyn Monroe in Andrew Dominik's Blonde, but our pals over at the Schmoes Know reckon Paramount are looking at Chastain for a more action based role: joining Tom Cruise in Christopher McQuarrie's Mission Impossible 5.

A "very trusted source" for the Schmoes report that Paramount are looking to sign Jessica Chastain for a lead role next to Tom Cruise in the still untitled fifth Mission Impossible movie. Details on this role are sparse, but the site also say that should she accept, she'll play "Tom Cruise’s right hand woman". That sounds more like a fellow agent than another love interest, but who knows. We'll have to treat this as a rumor for now, but expect one of the trades to stick their oar in sooner rather than later. Iron Man 3 writer Drew Pearce will pen the screenplay for the movie, with Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie at the helm.

Do it!

Very excited to see what they do with this movie. Ghost Protocol was beyond badass.
MrCBM56 - 4/23/2014, 7:18 PM
Awesome. GP was great! Very excited for this one.
MrCBM56 - 4/23/2014, 7:21 PM
I hope Ving has more to his role too. Also, Simon Pegg HAS to be in it. I don't really care if Renner or Patton return although it'll be cool if they did.
BatGOD - 4/23/2014, 7:35 PM
Like the director as Jack Reacher was pretty good, not too keen in the IM3 writer though, that movie sucks.
Bekss - 4/23/2014, 7:35 PM
I would like to see Renner again and Pegg NEEDS to be in it, Ving too. I don't care about Patton.

Loved Ghost Protocol and Mission Impossible 3.

Looking forward to Mission Impossible 5.

Does anyone actually still care about this franchise? Did anyone ever really care anyway?
Bl00dwerK - 4/23/2014, 7:42 PM
The last one was pretty awesome...
DrDoom - 4/23/2014, 7:44 PM

After Ghost Protocol, more people care about Mission Impossible than ever before.

Give her short blonde hair and she's our Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel.
silverhawk - 4/23/2014, 7:51 PM
Gotta say that Protocol wasn't too great for me but I loved M:I-3 so bring it! I hope the agents from the third one are included, even if it's only for a bit.
micvalpro - 4/23/2014, 7:58 PM
I love the MI movies, even the crappys wana be super hero John Woo one. Jack reacher was also bad ass. Say what you want about cruise but he ALWAYS delivers.

Chastain is so hot in The Help.
cmay13 - 4/23/2014, 8:02 PM
I'm more interested in what her role or anyone's role in interstellar is
GeneralZod1138 - 4/23/2014, 8:03 PM
I would do everything to her....

Brad Bird was the entire reason Ghost Protocol was any good. Don't know why people are so excited for this.
Zuriel - 4/23/2014, 8:11 PM
She was my fan cast for April O'Neil. Then look at what we got. Oh well.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 4/23/2014, 8:11 PM
She's a badass. Could totally see it
Zuriel - 4/23/2014, 8:16 PM
She looks like Judith Hoag but hotter.
Batman52 - 4/23/2014, 8:22 PM
Should we really pay attention to what Schomeknows says? Like I know they're legit, but the rumors they bring up are not confirm especially the Ms. Marvel rumor?
KnobGoblin - 4/23/2014, 8:23 PM
I just feel like they keep making these movies, yet nobody really cares about them.
ComicsBornAndBred - 4/23/2014, 8:28 PM
She's an oven!!! Gorgeous ginger
Optimus83 - 4/23/2014, 8:39 PM
Cool. ...Mission Impossible 5, Jessica Chastain, ¡¡¡NOW!!!
Owlman88 - 4/23/2014, 8:41 PM
I love her soooo much!!!

mattattack - 4/23/2014, 8:57 PM
I love MI:3 and Ghost Protocol! Looking forward to the next installment.
maninfinesuit - 4/23/2014, 9:00 PM
Jack Reacher was shit. Don't [frick] this up, McQuarrie.

MexicanSexyman - 4/23/2014, 9:35 PM
@AstroZombie, well the last one made almost 700 million dollars, so I guess someone cares.
case - 4/23/2014, 9:38 PM
Too tall to be cruise's love interest.
loki668 - 4/23/2014, 10:36 PM
Mini-Me is too tall to play Cruise's love interest
furyanhunter - 4/23/2014, 10:49 PM
Astrozombie just wants attention. Can't wait for this. Hope renner and paula hotness patron return. Pegg and ving too. Give ving a fight scene dammit!
TheRealRemyLebeau - 4/23/2014, 10:54 PM
@AstroZombie I'm sorry but you sound stupid. I love the Mission Impossible films. Part 1-4 were all great and different from each other. MI:2 had some of the best action around that MI:3 was inspired by. The plot for Ghost Protocol was generic but a well executed film with excitement. Tom Cruise is one of the best action stars of all time.
Ihate4kids - 4/23/2014, 10:54 PM
I could never get into this franchise, not after what they did to Jim Phelps in the first one.
REPOMAN - 4/23/2014, 10:55 PM

Another great comic book movie.

Ror, really? Not a CBM discussion topic or even close... but I do love 'Jesse James'.

PLUS isn't she a lesbian? Lots o male hormones seem to be rising for a non-breeder. Could be wrong, but she gives off that vibe.
SaxoWolf - 4/24/2014, 1:56 AM
Nice. she's hot.

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol was really entertaining.
mgeoff88 - 4/24/2014, 2:09 AM
I really enjoyed M:I4. Jessica Chastain is very beautiful. And I'm sure she'll be a badass agent.
