Amy Adams, who gained experience dealing with aliens in Man of Steel
, is in early talks to star in the science-fiction thriller Story of Your Life
, to be directed by Denis Villenueve.
According to Deadline
, Adams would play an "expert linguist ... recruited by the military" to determine whether newly-arrived extraterrestrials are friendly (like Superman) or antagonistic (like Zod). It's based on a Nebula Award-winning novella by Ted Chiang, first published in 1998; Eric Heisserer wrote the screenplay; his credits include the scripts for the remakes of A Nightmare on Elm Street
and The Thing
, as well as writing and directing the recent Paul Walker vehicle Hours
Villenueve made a big splash with last year's one-two of Enemies and Prisoners, and his involvement suggests a thriller that will take chances with its subject matter. Adams can certainly hit it out of the park with the right material, so this is a combination that is very intriguing.
