Jessica Chastain opens up about her film Mothers' Instinct
In an interview with IndieWire about Mothers' Instinct in 2023, Jessica Chastain compared the upcoming thriller film to the 1962 movie titled What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, which starred Bette Davis and Joan Crawford.
"Of course it’s a different kind of film, but it’s this idea of these two actresses coming together and playing this…the tension I think is very interesting," Chastain told the outlet. "Thank God Annie and I love each other, so it’s a little different than that experience," she continued. Meanwhile, Mothers' Instinct is yet to receive an official release date.
