It revolves around a bunch of transnational spies who work together to end a potentially dangerous circumstance. Jointly, the team consisting of five women must form a team known as 355 as a sign of paying tribute to the committee of female spies that unified during the American Revolution.
As per reports by Variety, the actress Jessica Chastain who also features in the upcoming film was the one who formed the idea for the film and chose it to director Simon Kinberg. Chastain and Kinberg worked together in the past on the 2017 movie “X-Men’s Dark Phoenix” as a response to years and years of male-led spy films.
“My goals and dreams for ‘The 355’ are that we just accept the fact that women are awesome and tough and badass,” Chastain revealed to Deadline. She continued “I’m excited for society to start acknowledging what’s happening in our world.”
Here’s the official synopsis of The 355 movie:
“When a top-secret weapon falls into mercenary hands, wild card CIA agent Mason “Mace” Brown (Jessica Chastain) will need to join forces with rival badass German agent Marie (Diane Kruger), former MI6 ally and cutting-edge computer specialist Khadijah (Lupita Nyong’o), and skilled Colombian psychologist Graciela (Penélope Cruz) on a lethal, breakneck mission to retrieve it, while also staying one-step ahead of a mysterious woman, Lin Mi Sheng (Bingbing Fan), who is tracking their every move.”
