Jessica Chastain is set to both star in and produce a film adaptation of Jimmy Palmiotti and Joe Quesada’s iconic graphic novel series “Painkiller Jane” for Lotus Entertainment and Solipsist Films.
Chastain will play Jane Vasko, a New York City street cop who gets recruited by the FBI to infiltrate a major NYC drug and human trafficking ring. In a near death experience, Jane develops regenerative abilities that give her a unique indestructible advantage.
With nothing to live for and no way to die, Painkiller Jane becomes an unstoppable force of nature seeking revenge to those who destroyed her life as she leaves a path of death and destruction in her wake.
Lenny Beckerman and Stephen L’Heureux will also produce.
