Chastain to join Good People film?

Jessica Chastain is tipped to star in upcoming movie Good People.

The Oscar-nominated Help actress has been offered a part in the big screen adaptation of Marcus Sakey's novel, reported The Wrap, although it is not yet known whether she has accepted the role.

127 Hours actor James Franco is thought to have already signed up for the movie.

It follows a couple - to be played by Jessica and James - in severe debt who are faced with a big decision when the tenant in their downstairs apartment dies and leaves a pile of cash.

Good People will be directed by Henrik Genz.
