Chastain Wanted For “Mission: Impossible 5”?

Jessica Chastain (“Zero Dark Thirty,” “The Help”) is reportedly being sought for a starring role in the upcoming fifth “Mission: Impossible” film with Tom Cruise.

Schmoes Know, a site that has actually been consistently quite good lately on the casting scoop front, says Chastain has received an offer.

It’s presently not known what the role will be in the Christopher McQuarrie-directed movie which is currently aiming to begin filming in August for a Christmas 2015 release.

Chastain was previously slated to work with Cruise on “Oblivion,” but scheduling didn’t pan out and Olga Kurylenko ultimately took her place.
