She has been known to play powerful female roles in movies like “Zero Dark Thirty,” “Crimson Peak” and “The Martian” and perhaps her role in the upcoming “The Huntsman” will just add another powerful role to her roster. Jessica Chastain recently sat down to speak about her role in the “Snow White and the Huntsman” prequel and here’s what she revealed.
According to Christianity Daily, Jessica revealed that she would be playing the role of Sara, a Scottish warrior alongside Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron who are reprising their roles from “Snow White and the Huntsman.” Being a warrior in “The Huntsman” definitely means that there would be a lot of action scenes that the actress will be required to do and with the comments that she made about it, one can look forward to seeing her do just that. She further revealed that she will be kicking some serious a** in the movie and it is one of those roles that she has never done before. She also mentioned about how wonderful it is to work with Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron and Emily Blunt who is said to be the other addition to this movie.
The actress was also all praises for Jennifer Lawrence’s role as Katniss in the “The Hunger Games” franchise as the actress in the movie did not sport a catsuit, which often sexualizes female heroes on-screen. Talking about the superhero genre, when she was asked if she would like to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, she stated that if a good script does come her way, she wouldn’t mind playing any role in the superhero franchise.
A few months back Daily Mail had published a photo of the actress landing back in the UK when she was spotted exiting London’s Heathrow airport. She was there to continue the shoot for “The Huntsman” near the British capital. “The Huntsman” is a prequel/spin-off of “Snow White and the Huntsman” movie and will be telling the story of Chris Hemsworth’s character Eric and will be focusing on who he was and what was he doing before meeting Snow White. “The Huntsman” will release next year on April 22nd.
