Jessica Chastain: Sexy Scientist in 'Iron Man 3?'

Posted Tuesday April 24, 2012 10:45 AM GMT

The third installment to the original 2008 "Iron Man" film is due out next year and Jessica Chastain just might be the newest actress added to the credits.

According to a report put out by Deadline on Monday (April 23), Chastain is once again in talks to star alongside Robert Downey Jr as a “sexy scientist every bit as smart as Tony Stark.”

"The Help" starlet was allegedly offered the role once before, but scheduling issues made it impossible for her to accept the part. Now, Jessica seems to have beaten out fellow actresses including Diane Kruger, Gemma Arterton and Isla Fisher.

The film, directed by Shane Black, is due out next May and also stars Gwyneth Paltrow Don Cheadle, and potentially Guy Pearce and Ben Kingsley.
