Jeremy Renner has joined the cast of Story of Your Life, an alien invasion film from director Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Enemy, Incendies). Amy Adams was cast in the film last year.

The project, based on Ted Chiang’s story, centers on aliens landing on Earth. The military then recruits Adams’ linguistic expert to determine whether they come in peace or are a threat. Renner will portray a physics professor brought on to help communicate with the aliens.

Paramount picked up North American rights at Cannes last year, when Adams and Villeneuve were attached. Sony picked up most foreign markets.

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.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
