Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain reunite for new film “Mothers’ Instinct‎”


Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain, who once starred in the sci-fi blockbuster “Interstellar‎” but missed the chance to play against each other, finally had the opportunity to “fight head-to-head” on the stage this time.

The two have confirmed that they will co-star in a psychological thriller, “Mothers’ Instinct‎,” whose U.S. distribution rights have been won by Neon Pictures, which previously released “Gisaengchung.”

“Mothers’ Instinct‎” is based on the novel “Derrière La Haine” by Belgian author Barbara Abel, set in the 1960s.

Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain will play a pair of neighbor friends in the film. The two originally lived a peaceful and beautiful life, with a successful husband and a son of the same age.

But this perfect harmony was shattered overnight by an accident, and a series of guilt, suspicion and delusions destroyed the friendship of the two sisters.

The original novel was remade into the Belgian film “Duelles‎” in 2018, and the director of the film, Olivier Masset-Depasse, will return to direct the “Mothers’ Instinct‎”.

The film is expected to officially start filming on May 25, and Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain also co-produced the film.
