Amy Adams to Star in Gillian Flynn's 'Sharp Objects http://bit.ly/1VtwJZQ
Sounds interesting, where will it air?
They don't know yet. Says it's being shopped around. I just wonder if it's gonna be a series or mini-series.
I imagine a mini as I doubt Amy has plans to commit to a series.
Yeah, that was my first thought too, but I don't think they usually use the word "showrunner" for a mini-series. Could be wrong, but that's what has me wondering.
Have to know where it is airing, before I get too excited. Always good to have more Amy though.
Get that Emmy, Amy!
I haven't read this yet but I remember reading a list of Gillian's best twists and this one was on top. It bodes well too that she's writing the screenplay so hopefully this will be more Gone Girl than Dark Places.
The book is dark from the bits I remember reading a while back. Will have to re read the whole thin now though. But this is a darker plot than Gone Girl or Dark Places.
I also think it will be a mini series. Something like 8 episode season like True Detective or something.
Well I'd be all for 13 weeks of Amy.
funny, I imagined her in my head when I was reading Dark Places
though with how that movie turned out...better for her lol
the plot definitely lends itself to a series rather than a movie, so I'm pumped
Amy was rumoured for the main role in 'Dark Places' and was in negotiations before she dropped out and Charlize came on board.
So the FlynnGirls consist of Rosamund Pike, Charlize Theron and Amy Adams. That's not a bad trio.
I read the book and enjoyed it quite a bit more than Dark Places, actually. Definitely looking forward to this.
This interview was done last October and it reveals why Gillian wanted to do a TV show instead of it being a feature film. http://www.glamour.com/entertainment/blogs/obsessed/2015/10/gillian-flynn-new-novel
Vallee say's this will be an 8 episode series. The original interview is in French though. http://plus.lapresse.ca/screens/2181d4ed-2c8f-4478-b27d-be9c8e6e3c6c|_0.html
Gone to HBO
HBO Orders ‘Sharp Objects’ Drama Series Starring Amy Adams http://deadline.com/2016/04/sharp-objects-hbo-drama-series-amy-adams-star-eone-marti-noxon-1201728892/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter …
HBO's development has been in trouble of late, this will fill 2 months of programming as they try to launch other ongoing dramas.
Two David Fincher shows were in production (one written by Gillian Flynn) and then were cancelled, Westworld had a troubled and extended production - still has no premiere date, Vinyl has been a financial/ratings disaster and True Detective season 3 could happen in 2018 - the last year Game of Thrones is likely to air.
Good luck to them.
Jean Marc Vallée talked about the show while promoting his next feature 'Demolition'. http://bit.ly/204OFwh
I'd like to give Amy Adams my sharp object, if you know what I mean.
Start's shooting in March
I haven't finished the book yet, but it's very interesting. I can't wait to see Adams bring the lead character to life.
HBO have started casting for it now. http://ewpacts.org/casting-notices/call-for-hbo-firefly-casting/
I'd so love to see Pfeiffer in the mother role
Amy briefly mentioned SO, during a press junket interview for Arrival with a newspaper journalist.
Amy say's True Detective inspired her to look into doing a limited series and Sharp Objects does have Season 1 TD vibes if you've read the books.
