Last month, we reported that Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain was in negotiations to star in Marvel's Iron Man 3. Yesterday, she revealed on her Facebook page, that she will not be starring in the sequel, due to an overloaded schedule.
Our report from last month revealed the actress was in talks to play a, "sexy scientist," who is just as intelligent as Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark. Shane Black is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Drew Pearce. Production is scheduled to begin very soon in North Carolina, so we may be hearing about her replacement in the near future.
Iron Man 3 comes to theaters May 3rd, 2013 and stars Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Ben Kingsley, Jessica Chastain. The film is directed by Shane Black.
