Coming off the acclaim at Toronto for two films, the Cannes darling Mommy and his starring vehicle Elephant Song, actor and filmmaker Xavier Dolan’s next film will mark his English language debut.

Joining his cast is none other than Jessica Chastain, herself having risen to prominence over the past few years, with her 2011 features The Tree of Life and Take Shelter followed by roles in films such as Zero Dark Thirty, Mama, and the upcoming features A Most Violent Year and Crimson Peak.

The film itself, titled The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, revolves around an American movie star who secretly corresponds with an 11-year-old in England, and Chastain will be playing the editor-in-chief of a gossip magazine. Chastain can be seen next in theatres in the Christopher Nolan film Interstellar, while Xavier Dolan’s Mommy will be opening in wide release in Canada later this month, with a US release date still unannounced.
