PRISONERS and ENEMY director Denis Villenueve has found a leading lady for his alien invasion thriller STORY OF YOUR LIFE: Multiple Oscar nominee Amy Adams.
According to Deadline, Adams is in early talks to join the film, which is based on a short story by Ted Chang. This is a different take on the alien invasion subgenre, and a refreshing one at that.
STORY OF YOUR LIFE 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.
Eric Heisserer (THE THING) penned the screenplay for STORY OF YOUR LIFE, which is being produced by FilmNation Entertainment, in partnership with Lava Bear Films.
