Entertainment Weekly has the first look of Amy Adams on Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals. The thriller follows an art gallery owner, Susan Morrow (Amy Adams), who reads deeply (perhaps too deeply) into the words of her ex-husband’s (Jake Gyllenhaal) latest novel, one she believes is a threat and tool of revenge against her. Paranoia and fear ensue as Susan must discover whether or not words are just words.
Ford told EW that, in penning the adaptation of Austin Wright‘s Tony and Susan, he added much to Adams’ character — including by casting lookalike Isla Fisher as her story-within-the-story double. Ford is a man certainly interested in aesthetics, and Animals is lensed by Seamus McGarvey, whose back catalogue includes Godzilla, Atonement, and We Need to Talk About Kevin. The film also stars Armie Hammer, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Michael Shannon, and Laura Linney — and is set to open on November 18.
