According to E! Online, The Help's Jessica Chastain will no longer appear in the third installment of the IRON MAN movie franchise. The actress was set to portray a "sexy scientist" that goes up against Gwyneth Paltrow's character in a competition to win the heart of Iron Man.
Yesterday, Chastain posted on her Facebook page, "Sorry to say that Iron Man 3 isn't going to work out. My schedule is jammed packed and I can't fit anything else in. The press announced my possible attachment far too soon. I know many of you wanted me to be involved, and I'm so sorry to disappoint you. Hopefully there'll be another Marvel film in my future. Shane Black and everyone on the IM3 team are really wonderful. I'm very excited to see the film when it comes out. xx"
Chastain will make her Broadway debut in an upcoming revival of Ruth Goetz and Augustus Goetz’s play 'The Heiress'. She recently received an Oscar nomination for her performance in 'The Help'.
