FIRST LOOK: Jessica Chastain in J.C. Chandor's 1981-Set Crime Drama 'A Most Violent Year'

More images have arrived via Entertainment Weekly of Jessica Chastain in “All Is Lost” director J.C. Chandor’s newest endeavor, “A Most Violent Year.” The period crime drama is now in post-production. A24 Films has slated an awards-friendly release.

Chastain stars alongside Oscar Isaac (“Inside Llewyn Davis”) as the heads of an oil business who get caught up in the New York City criminal underworld. (More on Chastain’s most busy year here.)

Also starring are David Oyelowo (“Middle of Nowhere”), Albert Brooks (“Drive”), Elyes Gabel (“World War Z”) and Catalina Sandino Marino (“The Bridge”), while Christopher Abbott (once Charlie on “Girls”) and Peter Gerety (“Inside Man”) have been added to the cast with undisclosed roles.

Here’s the official synopsis:

“A Most Violent Year” is a thriller set in New York City
during the winter of 1981, statistically one of the most violent years in the
city’s history. The film follows the lives of an immigrant and his family
trying to expand their business and capitalize on opportunities as the rampant
violence, decay, and corruption of the day drag them in and threaten to destroy
all they have built.
