John Madden on Releasing Jessica Chastain Political Thriller ‘Miss Sloane’ in Trump era U.S.

9 December 2016 4:24 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

British director John Madden’s political thriller “Miss Sloane” went on release in U.S. cinemas in November 25 via EuropaCorp after world premiering at the AFI fest. Starring Jessica Chastain as a ruthless political lobbyist fighting to get a gun-control bill through Congress, the pic has just launched internationally as the Dubai Film Festival’s opener. In Dubai, Madden spoke to Variety about the challenges of releasing this tense Washington-set thriller for American audiences in the Trump era. Excerpts.

There’ve been big changes in Washington since you made this movie. How do you think they will affect its release?

Miss Sloane was finished only six to eight weeks ago, in mid-October. I wanted to get the film out this year because I didn’t want us to get out-of-synch with the politics on the gun issue, which is part of what the film is. I thought that that [gun control] might become a very topical thing. »
