Amy Adams Will Appear In Sharp Objects

Words have it that that Amy Adams has signed on to star in a TV adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects. Dallas Buyers Club director Jean Marc-Vallee is also coming aboard to direct the buzzy series, which has been in the works over at Entertainment One since July of 2014.

The book focuses on a reporter named Camille Preaker (Adams) who, shortly after a brief stay in a psych hospital, is tasked with traveling to her hometown to cover the shocking murders of two young girls. Returning home after years of estrangement from her hypochondriac mother and 13-year-old half-sister, she slowly becomes aware of troubling links between the victims and her mystery-laden past.

There’s no network attached yet, but with Adams and Marc-Vallee on board, interest is understandably high. Expect HBO to make a play for the series, especially given how committed the network has been in the past to working with Flynn. The author had previously been set to reteam with Gone Girl director David Fincher to write an HBO adaptation of the British series Utopia, a conspiracy thriller, but it ended up collapsing over budget disagreements. It’s hard to imagine that network’s execs not regarding Sharp Objects with some serious curiosity, especially now that it’s snagged not one but two major Hollywood talents.

Marti Noxon is attached to script, exec-produce, and serve as showrunner, while Flynn, Vallee, and Jason Blum rank among the various high-profile executive producers.
