Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects is coming to our TV screens starring Amy Adams.
Amy Adams is heading to the small screen.
The actress has signed on to star in Sharp Objects, the adaptation of the book by Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Dallas Buyers Club’s Jean-Marc Vallee has also signed on to direct the high-profile WME package, which is being shopped to cable and streaming outlets by Entertainment One and Blumhouse Productions.
Published in 2006, Sharp Objects centers on reporter Camille Preaker (Adams) — fresh from a brief stay at a psychiatric hospital — who faces a troubling assignment: She must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille hardly has spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows, a beautiful 13-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family’s Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims — a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story — and survive this homecoming.
