Production is officially underway on Miss Sloane, a new political thriller starring Jessica Chastain
EuropaCorp announced today that principal photography is officially underway on their new political thriller, Miss Sloane. Now filming in Toronto, Canada, Miss Sloane stars Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain (Interstellar, Zero Dark Thirty) and is being directed by John Madden (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Shakespeare in Love).
In Miss Sloane, a ruthless and highly successful political strategist, Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), exposes the cutthroat world of D.C. lobbyists working on both sides of the gun debate.
New legislation requiring more stringent background checks for gun purchases is gaining traction in the Senate, and Sloane is approached to spearhead the campaign, pitting her against formidable and powerful political opponents. Deploying her notorious skills and driven by a desire to win at all costs – she jeopardizes those closest to her, and puts her own career at risk.
Miss Sloane aims to deliver a riveting political thriller that delves into the complexities of one of the most pressing and fiercely-fought issues in contemporary America.
Also starring in Miss Sloane are Mark Strong (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle), Michael Stuhlbarg (A Serious Man), Alison Pill (The Newsroom), Jake Lacy (How to Be Single), Sam Waterston (The Killing Fields, Law and Order) and John Lithgow (Interstellar, Dexter).
Ariel Zeitoun is producing Miss Sloane for EuropaCorp alongside Ben Browning for FilmNation and Kris Thykier for Archery Pictures. Patrick Chu (FilmNation) serves as the executive producer. Jonathan Perera wrote the original screenplay. The behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Sebastian Blenkov, production designer Matthew Davies, editor Alexander Berner, and costume designer Georgina Yarhi.
Slated for release in 2017, Miss Sloane is a presentation of EuropaCorp and FilmNation to be distributed globally by EuropaCorp.
