With Javier Bardem and now Jessica Chastain in talks to star:
Variety wrote:Jessica Chastain is in negotiations to co-star with Javier Bardem in “A Most Violent Year.”

J.C. Chandor is directing the pic, with Neal Dodson and Anna Gerb producing.

Plot details are being kept under wraps. Chandor also penned the script.
Bardem and Chastain? sold 8-)

Your next film, "A Most Violent Year," has been in the news for some of the casting, but I don't really know what it's about.
I know and it's totally premature, that casting news. Not that those people may not end up in the movie.

What is it about?
It's set in 1981 in New York City, which actually is the most violent year on record. And it's a period film about sort of midsize business people and there's a bunch of conflict. But, the casting that's out there right now...

Which we've heard are Jessica Chastain and Javier Bardem...
Yeah. And a couple of other people. That didn't come from us. But, you know, it's really exciting and I've been working on it for awhile and we're probably going to shoot it in, I would think, mid-winter to late winter this year. It's all teed up and financed and ready to go.
So, Bardem and Chastain are not in the movie... yet? :?

Filming is set to start in Early 2014.
J.C. certainly has a lot of opportunities coming his way so we’ll see whether he wants to go make a really big movie or whether he wants to stay in this type of scale. His third movie, we’re working on that, we’ll shoot that in early 2014. Which is called A Most Violent Year, and we have some other really cool things coming down the pipe.

Chastain's still attached, but Bardem is no longer in this, and shooting starts in January.
All Is Lost director J.C. Chandor told me he forgot to wear his Academy pin that he got when he joined a couple of years ago. He was celebrating his last night out before starting his next film, The Most Violent Year (it was 1981 he says, followed closely by 1991). He said he needs to make some money now. Too many potholes in his driveway to fix. Jessica Chastain will co-star with a male lead soon to be announced.

And (maybe) one reporter from USA Today has the exclusive of the male lead, although the tweet no longer exists :P

Oscar Isaac went to Julliard w/ Jessica Chastain & in January they're starring in J. C. Chandor's next film together. #SuccessfulSentences
It's weird to see that I'm the only one who posts here.

Issac would be a great replacement.

A little bit late, but cool. Seems that Chastain and their constant appearances at the awards circuit were elemental to Isaac being casted. Also, this must be bigger than Chandor's previous efforts if Participant is finacing. Finally, Stanley Tucci is in talks too, it could be great since Tucci was pretty good in Margin Call. Wondering how the roles of Chastain and Tucci will play in the story.

Can't wait for Tucci to steal the show from Chastain and young Al.
