With Jessica Chastain pretty much locked for a Best Actress nomination for "Zero Dark Thirty," the actress has plenty more to come in 2013. She'll be going horror for the first time in the Guillermo Del Toro-produced "Mama" opening in January, and likely to crop up on the festival circuit where she has now become a familiar face, are a duo of romantic dramas in which she co-stars with James McAvoy.

Myriad Pictures has dropped the first sales poster and official synopsis for the story, which is a two-picture look at a crumbling relationship told from two perspectives. A pretty great cast has been lined up including William Hurt, Viola Davis, Bill Hader, Jess Weixler, Ciaran Hinds, Isabelle Huppert and Nina Arianda for the feature debut by writer/director Ned Benson. Here's the breakdown:

No word yet on where it might premiere, but keep your eyes peeled. Of course, we're pretty excited for this one and hope further updates aren't too far away. Check out the sheet below.

Poster and synopsis removed at the request of Myriad Pictures.
