Amy Adams to star in Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects
Actor Amy Adams is set to star in upcoming TV show Sharp Objects, an adaptation of Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn’s book of the same name.
Jean-Marc Vallee will direct the adaptation, said The Hollywood Reporter.
Published in 2006, Sharp Objects centres on reporter Camille Preaker fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital who faces a troubling assignment. She must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls.
Installed in her old bedroom in her family’s Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims strongly.
Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past to get the story and survive this homecoming.
The drama was optioned five years earlier by Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions before Gone Girl became a worldwide phenomenon.
