Quebecois filmmaker Xavier Dolan is gearing up for the release of his recently-wrapped English-language debut, "The Death and Life of John F. Donovan." After months of deliberation and a slow reveal of cast members from Kit Harrington in the title role to Kathy Bates and Natalie Portman, Dolan revealed the first official teaser poster. Through a series of images on Instagram, the filmmaker teased the poster features Jessica Chastain, revealing it later via Twitter.

The two-time Oscar nominee's entrancing gaze, mane of red hair, and perfect contour back up Dolan's message that she's "up to no good." Dolan, the X in our V100 Alphabet shot by Inez and Vinoodh, has revealed that the film will follow a young TV actor reminiscing on written correspondence with the title character, John F. Donovan, ten years after his death, and explore how the correspondence changed the lives of both men. Although no release date has been confirmed, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan is due for an early 2018 release.
