Chastain and Davis were fixtures on the Awards circuit last year (both for "The Help," Chastain also had "The Tree of Life"), while McAvoy ("Atonement," "Last King of Scotland," "Wanted") held his own as Charles Xavier in "X-Men: First Class," across from scene-stealing Michael Fassbender. Hurt's been busy, playing Hank Paulson in HBO's "Too Big to Fail" along with such indie and supporting roles as "The Yellow Handkerchief," "Late Bloomers" and "Robin Hood."
Huppert ("The Piano Teacher," "White Material"), one of France's finest exports, appeared in two of this year's Cannes-premiering films, Michael Haneke's "Amour" and Hong Sang-soo's "In Another Country," from South Korea. And theater star Arianda, who will play Chastain and McAvoy's therapist, also recently snagged the lead in the Janis Joplin biopic, "Janis."
The Myriad Pictures production is currently filming.
