Washington: After sending shivers down the spine in the horror 'It: Chapter 2', Golden Globe winner Jessica Chastain is gearing up to entertain her fans with comedy-drama 'Losing Clementine'.

The film will receive direction from award-winning filmmaker Lucia Puenzo who will helm a script by Ann Cherkis, reported Variety.

Chastain's upcoming feature has been adapted from Ashley Ream's acclaimed novel of the same name and revolves around a world-renowned artist Clementine Pritchard (Chastain) who flushes away her medicines and gives herself 31 days to tie up loose ends before taking her own life.

As she is checking things off the bucket list, Pritchard comes across some secrets about her family and the tragedy that befell her mother and sister. 

Sentient's Renee Tab will bankroll the flick with her partner Christopher Tuffin alongside Chastain and Kelly Carmichael.
