The lovely Juilliard-trained actress, Jessica Chastain has been offered a lead role in the big-screen adaptation of Marcus Sakey’s novel ‘Good People’.

Chastain would star as Anna Reed opposite James Franco, who will star as her husband Tom in  Henrik Genz’s feature adaptation of the best selling novel by Marcus Sakey.

Danish director Genz (The Killing TV series) will helm the film based on Kelly Masterson‘s script. Ben Forkner is producing along with Tobey Maguire, Eric Kanzler, Thomas Gammeltoft, Mark Gill and Ed Cathell.

The story follows a couple (Chastain and Franco) in their 30s in severe debt,

who finds the tenant in their downstairs apartment has died and left a stack of cash.’ The obligatory moral-crisis element to the plot synopsis reads as follows: ‘If they take the money, all of their problems will be solved. But that’s when bad things start happening to good people. »
