Jessica Chastain may seem like she can do it all, but there's one project it looks like she just can't squeeze in. Attached as recently as this spring to "The Secret Scripture," Cineuropa now reports that Rooney Mara is the young female lead opposite Vanessa Redgrave in the film. She'll join Jack Reynor and Jeremy Irons in the Jim Sheridan directed film, based on the book by Sebastian Barry, about "a 100-year-old woman in a mental hospital and her relationship with her psychiatrist." Production will begin this fall. 

Alejandro González Iñárritu is keeping very busy. He's got "Birdman" ready to unveil at Venice, he'll be shooting "The Revenant" this fall, and he's also headed to the small screen where he'll direct the series "One Percent." And he's got some unlikely actors for the lead roles. Deadline reports that Ed Helms, Hilary Swank and Ed Harris are lining up roles in the show that's "set against the backdrop of the organic farming community. Helms and Swank would play a husband and wife who are struggling professionally and personally to keep their business afloat, while Harris would play the family patriarch." Huh. Anyway, this one still needs to find a network home and a series order before anything happens, so it could be a while off.

Title change update. According to The Wrap, the Bradley Cooper led "Chef" is now (blandly) titled "Adam Jones." Sienna Miller, Emma Thompson, Daniel Brühl, Riccardo Scamarcio, Lily James, Jamie Dornan and Alicia Vikander are all lined up in supporting roles in the John Wells directed film about "a hot-shot chef who returns to London in search of a third Michelin star after stepping away from the kitchen for several years."

Though he's earning acclaim for his turn in "Foxcatcher," Steve Carell isn't turning his back on the kind of fare that shot him to fame. THR reveals that Disney is developing "Brooklyn Family Robinson" for the actor. The plot will follow the "patriarch of a family, to be played by Carell, who relocates his family from city life to island life." Hilarious results to follow, we're sure.
