Oscar-nominee Jessica Chastain is too busy to appear in one of the most successful film franchises, 'Iron Man 3'.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, 'The Help' star Jessica Chastain had to turn down an offer for a role in the new 'Iron Man 3' film due to the fact that she couldn't fit it in her schedule. Jessica announced via her Facebook that she couldn't fit the Marvel sequel into her calendar, which is surprising given the fact that she appeared in six films alone in 2011.

Jessica was offered the role of a scientist in the third go around of Iron Man franchise, but officially passed on the part. In a note on her Facebook wall, she wrote, "Sorry to say that Iron Man 3 isn't going to work out. My schedule is jammed packed and I can't fit anything else in. The press announced my possible attachment far too soon..."

While it's probably true the press jumped on that bit of information a bit too soon, we can't blame anyone for being excited at this possibility. We know Jessica would have been an incredible addition to the cast.

Shane Black will helm the Iron Man series for the first time, after Jon Favreau directed the first two films. Robert Downey Jr. returns as the hero, Gwyneth Paltrow will reprise her role as Pepper Potts, and Don Cheadle will again play Lt. Col Rhodes. Fresh faces will include Ben Kingsley and Guy Pearce.
