I have added new photos to Jessica’s gallery on the set of the movie “The Good Nurse”. Enjoy!
During the first week of filming Jessica Chastain and her co-star, Eddie Redmayne was captured by photographers on set. You can see the images below. (Thanks to Anne for the photos from April 18).
Based on Charles Graeber‘s book, “The Good Nurse” is a true story that centers around the pursuit and capture of serial killer Charlie Cullen, who is also known as the “Angel of Death”. Cullen is one of the most prolific serial killers in history. He has killed more than 300 patients over the course of 16 years that spread across nine hospitals in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Redmayne will play Cullen while Chastain will play Amy Loughren, a nurse and Cullen’s co-worker, whose dogged pursuit helped end the killing spree, risking her job and the peace of her family.
FilmNation will launch international sales on “The Good Nurse,” a thriller set to star Jessica Chastain and Eddie Redmayne, at the European Film Market (EFM), Variety has learned.
The film marks Tobias Lindholm’s English-language feature directing debut. The Danish filmmaker previously oversaw “A Hijacking” and “A War.” The film centers on Charlie Cullen, a nurse who is regarded as one of the most prolific serial killers in history and was known by the moniker, “Angel of Death.” He is believed to have been responsible for the deaths of as many as 300 patients over 16 years. Redmayne will play Cullen and Chastain will play a nurse who begins to unravel the true scope of his crimes.
Redmayne won an Oscar for “The Theory of Everything” in 2014 and scored another nomination for “The Danish Girl” in 2015. His upcoming projects include “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 3” and Aaron Sorkin’s “The Trial of the Chicago 7.” Chastain was nominated for 2011’s “The Help” and “Zero Dark Thirty” in 2012. She will next appear as Tammy Faye Bakker in “The Eyes of Tammy Faye” and in the spy thriller “355.”
Krysty Wilson-Cairns wrote the screenplay based on the book by Charles Graeber. Protozoa Pictures’ Scott Franklin and Darren Aronofsky will produce the film, along with FilmNation Entertainment.
