Edgar Ramirez is set to star alongside Jessica Chastain in Lucía Puenzo’s directorial effort, Losing Clementine. The film, an adaptation of the novel by Ashley Ream adapted by Ann Cherkis.
Lucia Puenzo is directing the indie drama that is being produced by Renee Tab and Christopher Tuffin at Sentient Entertainment. Chastain is producing with her Freckle Films partner Kelly Carmichael as is Steve Richards of Endurance Media, which is also financing.
Chastain will portray the bipolar Clementine who decides to commit suicide with her 36th birthday rapidly approaching. After flushing away her meds, she gives herself 30 days to tie up loose ends—to finish one last painting, make nice with her ex-husband, and find a new home for her cat. But, she then uncovers secrets about her family and the tragedy that befell her mother and sister. Ramírez will play the role of Richard, the ex-husband of Clementine and her true love.
The cameras should be rolling this January in Los Angeles, and the film will mark a reunion for Chastain and Ramirez after they appear together in spy thriller The 355.
