Jessica Chastain recently shared her vision for a sequel to the acclaimed 2011 film, “The Help.”
“The Help” was adapted from Kathryn Stockett’s novel.
The story revolves around a white journalist who writes a book from the perspective of two Black maids who face racial prejudices while working for white households.
Celia formed a close bond with her maid, Minny.
Their friendship blossomed as they supported each other through challenging marriages.
Octavia Spencer And Jessica Chastain Back Together? Yes, Please!
Speaking on EW’s The Awardist podcast, Chastain delved into her desire for a potential sequel.
“You know who I think about all the time, and I just wish I could play her [again]? Celia Foote. I just want to do something, Celia and Minny, and see what happened. You know they ended up living together and raising the baby together, they were best friends. How amazing would that film be? I loved her, and I got to be a bit silly.”
Octavia Spencer’s portrayal of Minny Jackson earned her an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.
Chastain also received a nomination in the same category.
The film boasted a star-studded cast, including Viola Davis, Allison Janney, Bryce Dallas Howard, Emma Stone, Anna Camp, and more.
