This fall will mark fifty years since November 22, 1963 -- a date that continues to haunt American history. When John F. Kennedy was assassinated, it seemed to mark an undeniable shift in the country, away from the positivity and hope that followed War War II, into a more fraught and frightened era with more wars overseas, social and political upheaval and much more. To mark the anniversary, there will undoubtedly be a ton of programming and films to choose from, and this is one of them.

“Rodham,” the Hillary Clinton biopic, continues to move forward with a number of different actresses being rumored to play the lead role. But, any word of Jessica Chastain’s involvement in the project is certainly news to her. While at the Sound of Change concert in Surrey, England the other day, Chastain shot down reports that she was starring in the film.

Even though her political career isn't over yet, with a 2016 Presidential race still a distinct possibility, it looks like the life of Hillary Rodham Clinton is being prepared for some cinematic reflections. Last month, "Smashed" and "The Spectacular Now" director James Ponsoldt signed to direct the Black List approved "Rodham," a biopic focusing on Hillary's student days and her rise into the world of politics. It's some strong material and a good story, and naturally, some big name actresses are already being bandied about to take the lead role.

After two Oscar nominations in a row, and one of the best performances of the decade so far in "Zero Dark Thirty," all eyes have been on what Jessica Chastain would do next. While the actress has lined up some major projects -- teaming with Guillermo del Toro on "Crimson Peak" and Christopher Nolan on "Interstellar" -- the star's first move was to do something lower key; an adaptation of August Strindberg's seminal play of sexual politics and class, "Miss Julie."

Having already notched her belt with Terrence Malick, Kathryn Bigelow, John Hillcoat and Ralph Fiennes (among others) and lining up gigs this year with Liv Ullman ("Miss Julie") and Guillermo Del Toro ("Crimson Peak"), it's safe to say that Jessica Chastain has her pick of the crop.

Jessica Chastain’s rise in the film industry has been nothing short of meteoric. Just think, exactly two years ago, hardly anyone knew about her. Then Cannes 2011 comes around, and she’s in two films: “Take Shelter” and “The Tree of Life.” And in short order, Chastain had arrived. Now with two Oscar nominations in two consecutive years, she looks to continue her hot streak.

And we thought the casting up of David O. Russell's movie was getting intense. While monsters may take center stage of Guillermo Del Toro's upcoming "Pacific Rim," for his next feature effort, "Crimson Peak," the director is impressing us thus far with the roster of talent he's assembling.

Two-time Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain has seemingly done it all -- including a low-rent horror movie -- but has yet to dip her toes in the blockbuster world. Opportunities arose last year with parts in "Oblivion" and "Iron Man 3" floated her way but they didn't pan out. But now another movie may find her on a vine, swinging hard for the multiplex.

A batch of stills from each “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: His” and “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Hers” have provided the first major break in the case of the mysterious two-part project. For those of you who haven’t heard, the loftily titled pair of features is a two-part set from writer-director Ned Benson starring Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy as a husband and wife with a failing relationship. One film will tell the story through the eyes of the husband, a restaurateur, while the other film sees the events through the eyes of the wife, who goes back to college.
