Amy in talks for ‘The Orphanage’?
30 Aug 11

From Bloody Disgusting:

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.

New Line’s been developing The Orphanage since 2007.


Waiting for the day I can 'professional fangirl' for a living.

    I don’t know. Not a big horror movie fan, so I’m really not too excited about the possibility of this. Plus, remakes almost always pale in comparison with the original.

    You really got the point mac. I love horror movies, but remakes never was my favorites. I’m a big “The Ring” fan, but the Japanese one, the remake wasn’t that great.

    I would say no to this but then again, I’m not Amy and she knows better..She should take more lead roles though. I would be happy she takes another romantic comedy.. 😛
