If this is the result of Dark: Phoenix, then I’d say the X-Men finale box office dud was a net positive.
Inspired to make an all-female action film, actress Jessica Chastain approached her Dark: Phoenix director / producer Simon Kinberg to collaborate with her on the concept. They have and now are, and the result is the thriller titled 355.
Oscar winners Penélope Cruz and Lupita Nyong’o join Chastain along with Diane Kruger and Fan Bingbing to complete the estrogenic ensemble (Asian actress Bingbing is in the photo that Chastain is holding, above).
Chastain has posted a behind-the-scenes first-look video of the secretive production that’s currently shooting in Paris (plot details remain a mystery), and that on-set sneak can be seen below. Set to ABBA‘s “Gimmie! Gimmie! Gimmie!,” the video also includes Kinberg plus co-stars Sebastian Stan and Edgar Ramirez.
Although no release date has been announced, 355 is set to open in 2020.
