Rebecca Hall (The Presitge) has been tapped by Shane Black to take up the role recently vacated by Jessica Chastain. Variety broke the casting news which isn’t definite yet. Chastain cited scheduling issues on her facebook page as the reason for the departure. She is currently filming Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty.

As reported earlier Iron Man 3 will draw elements from Warren Ellis’ six-issue Extremis storyline and Hall’s character will be of a sexy young scientist with intelligence that rivals that of Stark’s (quite likely Maya Hansen who helped create the Extremis nanotech and was also previously romantically involved with Stark).

Filming is scheduled to begin in North Carolina this month before heading off to China in late summer.

Iron Man 3 will hit theaters May 3, 2013.
