Amy Adams, in my opinion, is one of the best actresses working today. She is adaptable and has covered almost every genre except sci-fi, and the way things are shaping up, she will be able to check that off of her list soon.
Deadline announced that Adams is close to signing onto Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi thriller Story of Your Life. Here is the synopsis:
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.
I am sure there is more to it than meets the eye. Reading this synopsis, you get images of a ton of different sci-fi movies that you have seen before. I do have faith that with Villeneuve at the wheel there is much more to this story. His movie Prisoners is one of the most haunting films that I have seen in a while, so I have no doubts in his skills. Signing Adams to star in it doesn’t hurt either.
We will definitely keep you posted on this one.
Until Next Time…
