Filming has begun for the spy film 355 and actress Jessica Chastain is taking you behind the scenes with a video that you can watch below! The video is set to ABBA’s “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight).”
The movie, directed by Simon Kinberg (Dark Phoenix), also stars Penélope Cruz, Fan Bingbing, Lupita Nyong’o, Diane Kruger, Sebastian Stan, and Édgar Ramírez.
The actresses will play five accomplished secret agents from countries around the world. They have to overcome suspicions and political differences to form a spy sisterhood to thwart a common enemy.
The movie has been compared to such franchises as Bourne Identity, Mission: Impossible and James Bond.
Written by Theresa Rebeck and Kinberg, 355 is being produced by Chastain, Kinberg, and Kelly Carmichael.
As Chastain says in the video, when she was making the new X-Men movie, Dark Phoenix, she had an idea of doing a female ensemble action film. They called all the actresses and they are the studio – the filmmakers and stars own the film. Universal Pictures will distribute 355 to theaters, though a release date has not yet been set.
As the video indicates, the project is filming and being made in Los Angeles, New York, London and Paris, where they are shooting now.
