Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway team up for Mothers' Instinct
The actors play best friends and neighbours, who live an idyllic traditional lifestyle with successful husbands and sons of the same age
Hollywood stars Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway will co-star in the psychological thriller, Mothers 'Instinct.
The actors play best friends and neighbours, who live an idyllic traditional lifestyle with successful husbands and sons of the same age. Set in the 1960s, the story goes on to narrate how their harmony is shattered by a tragic accident, and how they explore a sisterly bond.
Olivier Masset-Depasse will direct this English remake of his 2018 Belgian-French film, Duelles. The film is based on the novel Derriere la Haine by Barbara Abel. Sarah Conradt will adapt the script for the screen. Apart from starring, Chastain also produces the project.
"It takes actors of Jessica and Anne's caliber to communicate the intricacy of these two roles," Masset-Depasse said, adding, "The relationship between a mother and child is the most powerful connection between two human beings. When this bond is severed, it calls into question conventional morality and even sanity. In the behind-closed-doors atmosphere of 1960's America, Mothers' Instinct becomes a terrifying, high-pressure powder keg."
