New Project – “Queen of Sheba”
28 Oct 08

According to Variety, Amy Adams will star in the indie drama Daughter of the Queen of Sheba for producers Susan Cartsonis and Matt Williams (What Women Want)!

The script, written by Karen Croner based on the bio of NPR correspondent Jacki Lyden, centers on how a woman uses her mother’s madness and delusions to empower herself.

Lyden was NPR’s first correspondent on the air in the aftermath of 9/11 and went to Afghanistan soon after the Taliban fell. She’s working on a book about the secret lives of a small group of Iraqi friends and reported on the slaying of her translator by an American soldier.

    Given her talent, I always look for and hope to see Amy doing thoughtful and useful projects. Hopefully, this will be such a project.

    Whether it will focus on the reporter’s experience growing up, or the incident in Iraq, is unclear — something to watch.

    I do so hope that the effort in Iraq, which removed the worst mass-murderer in that region’s history, and brought freedom and democratic rule to 27 million Iraqis — will not be maligned by the film. It’s sad that our efforts here get so little positive attention — given what has been accomplished.

    One thing seems fairly certain – Amy will do well, whatever she does.
