Amy Adams, currently helping Superman defeat evil Kryptonians as intrepid Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane in Zack Snyder’s reboot of “Man of Steel”, is reportedly in talks to star in New Line’s upcoming remake of the Spanish horror film “The Orphanage”. As far as I can tell, this would be her first horror movie, though I could be wrong. That is, if she actually signs on the dotted line to star. As of right now, she’s just in talks for the role.
Guillermo del Toro will produce the remake, which will be based on the 2007 Spanish horror movie of the same name directed by Juan Antonio Bayona and written by Sergio Sánchez. Adams would play the female lead, a single mom who takes ownership of a run-down orphanage, only to discover that evil shenanigans are afoot. Actress Belén Rueda played the female lead in the original.
The remake will be directed by Mark Pellington (“The Mothman Prophecies”) from a script by Larry Fessenden and original writer Sergio Sanchez.
FYI: Adam is a 3-time Oscar-nominated actress, with her most recent nomination coming for “The Fighter”.
