The poster for Jessica Chastain’s gun-control drama Miss Sloane was released today, just a few weeks after the film wrapped principal photography. Directed by John Madden (Shakespeare in Love) and written by Jonathan Perera, whose screenplay was ranked in the Top 5 of Hollywood’s 2015 Black List, the annual list of the industry’s best unproduced scripts of the year.

In MISS SLOANE, a ruthless and highly successful political strategist, Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), exposes the cutthroat world of D.C lobbyists on both sides of the gun control debate. New legislation requiring more stringent background checks for gun ownership is gaining traction in Congress, and Sloane is approached to spearhead the campaign, pitting her against the formidable power of her political opponents. Deploying her notorious skills – and driven by a desire to win at all costs – she jeopardizes those closest to her, and puts her own career at risk. MISS SLOANE is a riveting political thriller that delves into the complexities of one of the most pressing and fiercely-fought issues in contemporary America.[/box]
