With New Line Cinema set on The Mothman Prophecies and Arlington Road director Mark Pellington to get begind the camera for The Orphanage, the Guillermo del Toro produced remake of the Spanish-language ghost tale El Orfanato, the studio is now looking for their leading lady.
Bloody Disgusting has it on good authority that New Line has had talks with Amy Adams to star as “Laura”, a woman who takes over the orphanage where she was raised, to open a home for disabled children. Then her young son begins to play with the same imaginary friend who terrorized her when she was a child. Adams is a 3-times Academy Award nominee having starred in Enchanted, Doubt and The Fighter. She will soon be seen in Man of Steel and The Muppets Movie. To be clear, talks have taken place, but that does NOT mean she is signed to star.
Larry Fessenden penned the screenplay with Sergio Sanchez.
