Amy Adams can play any role, from a princess in “Enchanted,” a superhero’s love interest in “Man of Steel,” and a con-artist in “American Hustle,” in which the star was nominated for a Best Actress award. In all of the movies that she starred in, she flourished and now the star is currently in talks to star in “Story of Your Life.”
“Story of Your Life” is an action sci-fi movie that will revolve around alien invasion. This is a short story adaptation by Ted Chiang, a sci-fi author. It is rumoured that if Adams do take on the role, she will play the role as an expert linguist who is recruited by the military to determine the true motives of the aliens, leaving her to be the one to communicate with the extraterrestrials. Do they come in peace or they come as a threat to humans?
In “Story of Your Life,” we will see the communication between aliens and humans, this is when we will follow Adams “would-be” role as she learns to communicate with them in which she will get flashbacks that will be the key to unlock the great mystery behind their visit.
The movie already bagged a director, Denis Villenueve who directed “Prisoners.” As for Adams, she will also star in “Batman vs. Superman,” which will begin shooting later this year and this leaves Adams free as of the moment. Also, she just recently wrapped up production on Tim Burton’s “Big Eyes” as Margaret Keane.
Do you want Adams to take this role? We do, too because we know that she’s going to be amazing. When it comes to flexibility as an actor, we know Adams got it! It’s just cuteness overload with Adams in it, and she’s an amazing actress. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for this one because this movie is really happening. It’s nice to see aliens again on the big screen, right? It looks pretty interesting as well.
Production on “Story of Your Life” will begin sometime next year.
