Jessica Chastain is planning to quit acting.

The 'Molly's Game' actress will "step back" and move behind the camera some day because she's keen to bring other people into the spotlight to enjoy the success she's had in her career.

She told Grazia magazine: "Every day I feel like there is something new I never imagined I'd be doing.

"If anything, I think in the future I'm going to step back and I'm probably going to produce more. I may even direct.

"I'm interested in taking the light that has been shined on me and maybe shining it on some other people. I don't feel like I'm having to sacrifice anything because in reality this world is bigger than what my dream was."

Jessica Chastain : Mia is far better than I would have ever been in that role. I think she’s brilliant in the movie. When I read the script, I had never played a character like I think people have a false idea that women cannot direct big budget action films for some very strange reason—just like they might have

During last year's Cannes Film Festival, Jessica - who was a member of the jury - blasted the "disturbing" representation of women in film.

In an emotional speech, she said: "I do believe that if you have female storytelling you also have more authentic female characters. This is the first time I watched 20 films in 10 days, and I love movies. The one thing I really took away from this experience is how the world views women, from the female characters that were represented. It was quite disturbing to me, to be honest. There were some exceptions, I will say, [but] for the most part, I was surprised by the representation of female characters on screen in these films."

But the 'Zero Dark Thirty' star recently admitted she didn't go to Cannes with the intention to make such a powerful statement but nervously took the opportunity once she was on the jury.

She said: "I did not expect to say it. I was very nervous as I was talking, because I was formulating my words, and it was actually coming from a very true place. And then after I spoke, every other woman on the jury spoke to the same thing. The one big regret, from whatever came out of Cannes, was that their statements did not also go around. But yes, I was not alone in what I felt being on that jury."

Warner Bros and DC find Marvel writers to direct troubled Flash solo movie .
Warner Bros has turned to Spider-Man: Homecoming writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein to direct the upcoming solo movie starring Ezra Miller as DC superhero and Justice League member The Flash. The project has been in a state of constant flux since Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who wrote a story treatment, turned down the opportunity to direct. Seth Grahame-Smith was brought on board, but later dropped out due to creative differences. Dope's Rick Famuyiwa was then recruited and Kiersey Clemons was cast as female lead Iris West, but the director soon left – once again due to creative differences. Robert Zemeckis, Sam Raimi and Matthew Vaughn were rumoured to be up for the job, then there were reports Lord and Miller were back in the mix following their firing from Solo: A Star Wars Story. As of 17 January 2018, it will be Daley and Goldstein who direct. It's not know whether they will also take a pass at the script. Variety broke the news, also revealing that the director's chair was offered to Ben Affleck – who plays Batman and was once set to direct himself in his own solo movie. Daley and Goldstein are writing partners who directed 2015's Vacation reboot and the upcoming Rachel McAdams and Jason Bateman comedy Game Night.
