Joel Edgerton & Jessica Chastain to Star in Double-Feature THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ELEANOR RIGBY

Edgerton and Chastain lead related features.

Academy Award-nominee Jessica Chastain (‘The Help,’ ‘The Tree of Life’) and Joel Edgerton (‘Warrior,’ ‘Wish You Were Here’) are set to star in the double-feature film project for Myriad Pictures: ‘The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: His’ and ‘The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Hers.’

The love story explores a New York City couple’s relationship during a difficult time in their marriage, from the different perspective of the husband, (Edgerton), a restaurant owner, and of the wife (Chastain), who goes back to college. William Hurt (‘The Kiss of the Spider Woman,’ ‘Syriana’) is in negotiations to join the cast.

Ned Benson (‘In Defiance of Gravity’) will direct, helming from his own screenplays. Cassandra Kulukundis (‘A Late Quartet,’ ‘In Defiance of Gravity’) producing.

Kirk D’Amico, CEO of Myriad Pictures states that both films will be stand-alone movies, adding “We have to make both films work on their own, both for the buyers but also for the audiences. Together these films will describe a fully, more complete look at these characters and their lives.”
