Amy Adams in Talks to Star in Upcoming Drama 'The True American'!

Amy Adams in Talks to Star in Upcoming Drama 'The True American'!”

Adams is now promoting her upcoming HBO limited series Sharp Objects, where she plays Camille Preaker, a reporter who confronts the psychological demons from her past when she returns to her hometown to cover a violent murder.

It took a little while, but the Tracking Board has confirmed that Amy Adams is in talks to star in Pablo Larraín's drama THE TRUE AMERICAN and that Amazon is nearing a deal to take over distribution rights from Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures.

According to the site, Adams is yet to officially sign on to the film, as she could potentially face scheduling conflicts with the promotional tour for her upcoming HBO series Sharp Objects, for which she is also serving as a producer. Adams also recently wrapped work on the Dick Cheney biopic Backseat, in which she will play Cheney's wife Lynne. Christian Bale and Steve Carell also star in the film, which was directed by The Big Short's Adam McKay.

Based on the book by the same name, The True American, written by Anand Giridharadas, is set in Texas following the 9/11 attack. The book is set in Texas in the tumultuous time after the September 11 attacks. The plot revolves around a Muslim immigrant, Rais Bhuiyan, and his surviving a killing spree that took the lives of two other immigrants. After narrowly making it out alive, Bhuiyan worked to have his attacker Mark Stroman, who described himself as an "Arab slayer", spared from the death penalty.

Annapurna has been developing the film for some time, and at one point, Kathryn Bigelow was on board to direct and Tom Hardy was attached to star.
