The Hollywood Reporter has a series of interviews this week with some famous writers which books are going to be produced/turned into movies. Gillian Flynn (which has three of her books being in production, including Dark Places that will star Amy Adams) gave an interview in which she talks about Amy casting:
THR: What’s the status of the Sharp Objects and Dark Places adaptations?
Flynn: Dark Places is the closest; we want to start filming this winter. Sharp Objects has a producer, Jason Blum, and right now we are just trying to find the right director.
THR: Did you have a hand in casting Amy Adams in Dark Places?
Flynn: Not at all. I had many conversations with [Paquet-Brenner], and I really clicked with him. I had seen several of his other movies and thought he would be very well suited. From the beginning, he loved Amy, whom he pursued.
THR: Did you think she was the right fit for the role?
Flynn: Absolutely. I don’t tend to think of actors while writing, but as soon as he mentioned her name — I had seen The Fighter, and [the character] Libby Day in Dark Places has a kind of rough edge and rawness to her that I thought Amy could totally pull off.

Lacoste Other Projects
It’s being reported that Amy will be the face of a new Lacoste feminine fragrance.
Amy will reportedly be part of a large scale promotional drive online to promote the scent prior to a global in-store launch. The star joins actor Adrien Brody in being targeted by the French brand for their new campaigns.
According to WWD, the brand — known for its ties with some of the best legends in tennis, and of course, their colorful collection of polo shirts — plans to create a scent that is like “the feeling on skin of pure white cotton fabric.”
Magazines Man of Steel The Master Trouble With The Curve
Amy is cover of Italian “Tu Style” magazine, and my friend Claudia was nice enough to scan it to us. Check in our gallery, and also the translated article behind the cut.
Even Superman falls in love with me.
She says she’s a little clumsy. But in the latest two years she starred in six movies, she had a baby girl, and played in theatre. And in 2013 she will be Lois Lane, girlfriend of flying super hero. How can she manage doing this? Easy: her partner thinks of the rest. Because in life charism counts, but if nobody stands for you, where would you go?

Events & Outings Gallery
Arriving for one of independent film’s biggest nights, Amy Adams stepped onto the red carpet at the 2012 Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York City on Monday (November 26).
Looking ravishing in a curve-hugging, two-toned, asymmetrical black Giorgio Armani dress, Lorraine Schwartz earrings, and a Christian Louboutin clutch, Amy posed for pictures and greeted fans before heading in for the main event.
Amy Adams introduced the first tribute of the evening to Silver Linings Playbook director Russell. “We met at the Early World Cafe,” recalled Adams, who starred in Russell’s The Fighter. “I think he takes all his meetings there, not sure if he still does. I believe he had the chicken enchiladas.”

Articles & Interviews
Amy Adams has ditched the ingenue roles for unforgettable turns in classy awards fodder from big-name directors – and now she has worked with Clint Eastwood in Trouble With the Curve
It’s an absolutely archetypal American face; you can read a multitude into it. Look long enough at Amy Adams’ pre-Raphaelite cascade of orange-red hair, her pale complexion – with its susceptibility, no doubt, to freckles and sunburn – the upturned chin, the tough-cookie set jaw, and the slender sloping nose, and soon enough you will discern the possibilities: Anne of Green Gables, Annie, if she was still young enough, or one of Willa Cather’s doughty Nebraska Plainswomen – Thea Kronberg, perhaps, from The Song of The Lark – Dorothea Lange’s Migrant Mother, eyes fixed for ever on the middle distance, or any number of western farmwives or lady-gunfighters. Take names from Henry James or Edith Wharton – Daisy Miller, Undine Spragg – and Adams can be imagined embodying them all with ease and subtlety. In her most recent movie, Trouble with the Curve, she’s the estranged daughter of another American icon, Clint Eastwood, no less, while in her most impressive – and unsettling – performance in several years, in Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master, she is the womanly power behind the throne of yet another American archetype – Philip Seymour Hoffman’s avuncular, alcoholic religious fraud Lancaster Dodd.
