Signing a couple of Hollywood's finest leading ladies, Voltage Pictures nabbed Jessica Chastain and Vanessa Redgrave for "The Secret Scripture."

Based on the novel by Sebastian Barry, the story follows a 100-year old woman in Ireland who has been in a mental hospital since WWII.

The gals will play older and younger versions of Roseanne McNulty in the drama directed by Thaddeus O'Sullivan.

In the meantime, Jessica has a few different film projects in the works, including her role as the title character in "Miss Julie."
