Amy Adams Will Play A Woman Scared She's Turning Into A Dog In New Film

Adams will star in an adaptation of an upcoming book about a stay-at-home mother exhibiting canine tendencies.


Amy Adams has signed on for a new film with a wild premise. Deadline is reporting that Adams is attached to star in and produce a film adapted from the upcoming Rachel Yoder novel Nightbitch (that name could change for the cinema release), which will be released through Annapurna Pictures.

The book is a dark comedy about a mother who used to work as an artist, but is now a stay-at-home mother. For one reason or another, the woman believes that she is turning into a dog--hence the name.

Yoder is adapting her own book for the screen, and will serve as executive producer along with Megan Ellison, Sammy Scher, and Sue Naegle. Stacy O'Neil will also produce.

The book is due to be published in Summer 2021, so it's a while away yet. It's not the only Amy Adams adaptation on the horizon, either--she recently wrapped on The Woman in the Window, a Joe Wright (Atonement) adaptation of the popular A. J. Finn book.

Adams has been nominated for six Oscars (Junebug, Doubt, The Fighter, The Master, American Hustle, Vice), but has never won. Her time is surely coming.
