Just when you thought that unfortunate cliff-top finale would be the last you’d hear of “Mama” (subsequent sleepless nights and visions of her creeping up on you in the bathroom notwithstanding), her director Andy Muschietti has swiftly caught a rebound deal after the surprise profitability of the Guillermo del Toro-produced project (which has already prompted talk of a sequel).

It feels like Jessica Chastain is a name that we've been hearing about for years now, without much evidence to go by in terms of released movies. But now that we've seen her in a leading role in Terrence Malick's "The Tree of Life," we understand why she's such a hot property: she's a terrific, luminous actress. And 2011 will continue to be a massive year for her, as she has another seven films on the way: playing the young Helen Mirren in "The Debt"; starring in the acclaimed Sundance drama "Take Shelter"; popping up Ralph Fiennes' "Coriolanus," teaming with Al Pacino in "Wilde Salome," featuring alongside Emma Stone in "The Help," taking a part in John Hillcoat's "The Wettest County In The World," and appearing with Sam Worthington and Chloe Moretz in cop drama "Texas Killing Fields." Whew. As for 2012, she's got a small role in Malick's next picture (presuming it comes out next year), and she's just signed on to something that sounds very different, a film with a rising Spanish director, and produced by one of the biggest names in the genre world.
