Amy Adams is in early talks to star in director Denis Villeneuve’s (Prisoners, Enemy) new sci-fi, Story of Your Life. This would be both director and stars first sci-fi dealing with an alien invasion, and considering how talented both Adams and Villeneuve are, this sounds very exciting indeed.
Fresh from her Oscar nominated performance in American Hustle, Amy Adams is in early talks to team with Prisoners helmer Denis Villeneuve on Story Of Your Life, the sci-fi thriller based on a short story by Ted Chiang, a top contemporary author in the genre.
Scripted by Eric Heisserer (Final Destination 5 and remakes of The Thing, A Nightmare on Elm Street), the thriller takes place after alien crafts land around the world. An expert linguist is recruited by the military to determine whether they come in peace or are a threat. As she learns to communicate with the aliens, she begins experiencing vivid flashbacks that become the key to unlocking the greater mystery about the true purpose of their visit.
