Working on what should turn out to be one of the most interesting movies of the year, Jessica Chastain and Viola Davis roamed around outside Cooper Union while filming "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby" In New York City on Monday (July 30).

Each holding onto a piece of paper, "The Help" co-stars made their way to a park bench to sit and chat during their little bit of downtime.

Marking her first day of filming, Viola is one of the latest stars to join the cast of the two-film premise, adding to the talented cast of Chastain, James McAvoy, William Hurt and French superstar Isabelle Huppert.

"The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby" tells the story of a New York married couple (Chastain & McAvoy) and how their marriage is affected when the wife decides to go back to college.

As the first of two full-length flicks, the Ned Benson tale is slated to hit theaters sometime in 2013 and is told from the husband's perspective while the prequel will document the wife's point of view.
