Sounding like a modern spin on The Day the Earth Stood Still, Deadline reports that Amy Adams is in early talks to team with Prisoners helmer Denis Villeneuve on Story of Your Life, the sci-fi thriller based on a short story by Ted Chiang, a top contemporary author in the genre.
Scripted by The Thing and A Nightmare on Elm Street‘s Eric Heisserer, “the thriller 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.
