Amy Adams Will Head To Dark Places
She'll star in the thriller

Amy Adams Will Head To Dark Places

Amy Adams usually likes to mix up lighter material (such as The Muppets) with more dramatic work (The Fighter). She’ll definitely be headed down the latter route if she signs on to Dark Places.

Gilles Paquet-Brenner is attached to direct his script, which itself is adapted from Gillian Flynn’s book. The story digs deep into repressed memory and how events can be altered by the passage of time.

Adams will play a young woman whose family was murdered when she was seven. Back in the day, she pointed to her brother as the culprit, testifying against him in court. Now, 25 years later, a group obsessed with notorious crimes confronts her with some searching questions about what actually happened that day. Could the truth lie somewhere in between? We’re guessing yes, otherwise this will be a very short thriller.

Adams is in talks to star right now, and there is no start date listed for the indie pic. She’s just finished working on baseball drama Trouble With The Curve alongside Clint Eastwood and has On The Road, Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master and a little art house pic called Man Of Steel already in the can. Up next on her schedule? Charlie Kaufman and Spike Jonze’s latest, still-untitled collaboration.
