Amy Adams Could Star Alongside Mark Ruffalo in THE TRUE AMERICAN

Amy Adams is a delightful actor in the movies I’ve seen her in. According to Variety, she’s in talks to star in the upcoming drama from Annapurna Pictures, The True American. The report says that the deal is not closed yet because they trying to figure out the scheduling as Adams is currently out promoting her HBO limited series Sharp Objects. Sharp Objects is a very high priority for Adams as she not only stars in the series but is also a producer. That being said, she does want The True American to be her next film. If the deal is sealed, she will co-star with Mark Ruffalo and Kumail Nanjiani in the drama with Pablo Larrain directing. Here’s a synopsis of the nonfiction book by Anand Giridharadas that the movie is based on:

The True American is set in Texas in the days following the 9/11 attacks. It follows Rais Bhuiyan, a Muslim immigrant and Bangladesh Air Force veteran who narrowly survived a killing spree that took the lives of two other immigrants. Employed at a Dallas-area convenience store as he established himself in America, Bhuiyan worked to have his attacker, self-proclaimed “Arab slayer” Mark Stroman, spared from execution.

If that sounds interesting, you can go to Amazon right now to get the book or I’m sure your local bookstore has it as well. It sounds like it could be a very good drama.
