The Dark Knight Rises' Anne Hathaway and X-Men: Dark Phoenix's Jessica Chastain have united for a new thriller, and the first pictures have just been released.

Mothers' Instinct is set in the 1960s and follows the Interstellar actresses as neighbours/best friends Celine and Alice, respectively. Their idyllic suburban lives, with their successful husbands and young sons, is thrown into chaos after a tragic accident.

Soon, their friendship turns into a battle, as feelings of paranoia and suspicion set in, with their motherly instincts leading them to go to extreme lengths.

The film is actually a remake of a Belgian movie from 2018, Duelles. Olivier Masset-Depasse, who directed the original version, is directing this one too, with Deadline reporting that filming began this week.

Chastain and her production partner Kelly Carmichael issued a statement that reads: "Neon (distributor) is a true filmmaker's haven. Their unique vision and distinctive campaigns are a reflection of their mission to bring the best and most diverse cinematic experience to US audiences. Mothers' Instinct will be in excellent hands with Tom and the team."

Last year saw Chastain played a famous real-life American televangelist in The Eyes of Tammy Faye, which saw her go through an extensive transformation using prosthetics, but it paid off as she won an Oscar for Best Actress, while the film also achieved the Best Make-up and Hairstyling gong.

Meanwhile, Hathaway recently starred in the Apple TV+ series WeCrashed alongside Jared Leto, about the rise and fall of a major startup company.

One of her most famous films, The Devil Wears Prada, turned 15 last year and its screenwriter opened up about what the characters would be up to nowadays.

Mothers' Instinct is yet to announce a release date.
