Jessica Chastain has confirmed that she is taking the lead in an interesting film aptly titled Woman Walks Ahead.

Jessica Chastain will play New York activist, Caroline Weldon, who worked with the famed Sitting Bull as a translator in 1889 until his death.

It will undoubtedly showcase Jessica Chastain's uncanny talent for period roles.

But, that's not the only thing that The Martian and Crimson Peak star has on her plate right now.

Jessica Chastain is also working on Xavier Dolan's first English-language film, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan.

This film is about the slow downward spiral of John F. Donovan, played by Kit Harington, who is an actor who takes up correspondence with an 11-year-old male fan.

That correspondence is made to look indecent by Jessica Chastain's character, a gossip columnist.

The Death and Life of John F. Donovan also stars Nicholas Hoult, Thandie Newton and Natalie Portman.

When one directs Adele's "Hello" video, it seems one can get whatever talent one wants for the next big film, right?

Are you excited to see Jessica Chastain in action once again?
