The last time there was any movement on the sci-fi thriller Story of Your Life was way back in November of 2012. Scripted by Eric Heisserer (A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Thing), the film has a new director and even a possible leading lady!
According to Deadline, Amy Adams (pictured; American Hustle) is in early talks to team with Prisoners helmer Denis Villeneuve on the flick, which is based on a short story by Ted Chiang, a top contemporary author in the genre.
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.
FilmNation Entertainment, in partnership with Lava Bear Films, is financing, producing, and handling worldwide sales for the project.
