Director John Madden’s new film Miss Sloane is about a powerful Washington DC lobbyist played by Jessica Chastain. We caught up with Madden at Industrial Light Magic’s (ILM) office in San Francisco. ILM was a fitting venue since Madden’s first American project was a radio drama of Star Wars. George Lucas is a big fan of radio drama and gave the radio drama rights to his alma mater University of Southern California (USC) points out Madden.

We talked with Madden about his association with ILM, Star Wars,  the making of Miss Sloane and Chastain. The film is based on a screenplay by debut writer Jonathan Perera.

Madden first worked with Chastain in The Debt and was impressed with her acting. Tune in to find out what he has to say about Star Wars, the making of Miss Sloane, Jessica Chastain and Perera.
