Back in June 7th, Amy attended the premiere of her upcoming HBO miniseries Sharp Objects during the 2018 ATX Television Festival in Austin, Tex. She was joined at the event by series creator Marti Noxon and the book’s writer Gillian Flynn.
The eight-episode miniseries, directed by Big Little Lies‘ Jean-Marc Vallee, debuts on HBO on July 8. The series follows a woman who returns to her hometown in Missouri to solve the murders of two young girls.

Last month HBO launched the promotional tour for Sharp Objects with an interview to The Wall Street Journal magazine given by Gillian Flynn, Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson.
“Don’t they look related?” says author Gillian Flynn, glancing at Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson, who raise their eyebrows quizzically. The pair play mother and daughter in Sharp Objects, the much-anticipated HBO adaptation of Flynn’s 2006 debut novel, but the suggestion that they resemble their characters makes the actresses understandably uneasy.
Even for those who know Adams’s dramatic range, her portrayal of Camille Preaker is a departure. The darkest, most complex character in a career that has earned Adams, 43, five Oscar nominations, Camille is a newspaper reporter who has written her own story on her body, carving words into her skin. Since being institutionalized, she’s tried to drown her cutting addiction with alcohol. Meanwhile, as Camille’s mother, Adora, Clarkson, 58, relishes withholding affection from her firstborn even as she smothers Camille’s teenage half-sister, Amma, with attention.
When Camille returns to her hometown of Wind Gap, Missouri, to investigate the murder of a young girl, she is forced to confront her past and her grief over the death years before of her younger sister, Marian. She and Adora, who presides over the town with emotionless elegance, share a sense of loss, but little else.
The withering mother-daughter dynamic is the brainchild of Flynn. The 47-year-old author—who penned the screenplay for David Fincher’s 2014 adaptation of her novel Gone Girl—wrote this eight-episode series, which airs starting in July. She and Adams also served on the project as executive producers, a first for each of them. The project was spearheaded by women, including Marti Noxon, a Mad Men veteran who co-wrote and was showrunner; and Jessica Rhoades, then a television executive at Blumhouse (the production company that also released Whiplash and Get Out). Jean-Marc Vallée, fresh off the success of HBO’s Big Little Lies, directed the five-month shoot, with long days on set in Northern California, Los Angeles and the 100-degree heat of Georgia—especially grueling for Adams, who was covered with prosthetic scars from the neck down.
HBO’s Amy Adams-starring miniseries Sharp Objects is set to be released this July and last night, during the premiere of WestWorld second season, a teaser trailer has been released.
Based on the novel by Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn, Sharp Objects stars Adams as Camille Preaker, a reporter who returns to her hometown of Wind Gap, Missouri to investigate a gruesome double murder. But she’s fresh out of a mental hospital herself, and her half-sister Amma seems to think Camille might be having visions of the undead. As the local police chief warns Camille’s mother about her daughters, “one of them is dangerous, and the other one’s in danger.”
The supporting cast is stacked, with Six Feet Under‘s Patricia Clarkson as Camille’s mom and Mindy Project alum Chris Messina as a local detective. Plus, Big Little Lies fans, take note: Director Jean-Marc Vallée, who won an Emmy for helming BLL, is behind the camera here.
It is Emmy winner that we call it?
Amy Adams will be on ATX Festival to present Sharp Objects in June.
ATX Television Festival scored big when it announced the premiere of HBO’s adaptation of Sharp Objects, the latest onscreen conversion of a work by Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl). Now the star/executive producer, five-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams, has booked her ticket and will be flying to Austin for the opening night screening.
She’s not coming alone: aside from Flynn, she’ll be joined by director/executive producer Jean-Marc Vallée, showrunner/executive producer Marti Noxon, and the irrepressible Jason Blum, head of Blumhouse and responsible for a big chunk of your favorite horror films, plus (with Whiplash and Get Out) no stranger to Oscars himself.
ATX Television Festival runs June 8-10. For more info and announcements, see our ATX TV page
The current issue of Entertainment Weekly (on stands this Friday) brings the first official look of Sharp Objects.
Camille and her mother, Adora — the women at the center of Gillian Flynn’s 2006 debut novel, Sharp Objects — have a relationship so toxic they should be reported to poison control.
In the eight-episode adaptation developed by Marti Noxon (UnREAL) and directed by Jean-Marc Vallée (Big Little Lies, Wild), their venomous connection only grows more potent when Camille (Amy Adams), a crime reporter fresh out of a psych hospital for her years of self-harm, returns to her hometown of Wind Gap, Mo., to investigate the murders of two little girls. The assignment lands her back in her childhood home under the critical eye of picture-perfect small-town socialite Adora (Patricia Clarkson), which forces Camille to confront personal demons, including spoiled half sister Amma, played by Eliza Scanlen.
Like Flynn’s other novels, Dark Places and Gone Girl — which have both been adapted into films — Sharp Objects has no shortage of disturbing twists, but the author says this book most needed the extra TV screen time. “I was really nervous it would just turn into a horror movie and lose a lot of the nuance,” she explains. “The mystery is as much about who Camille is and what happened in this town as it is about the murders.”
Diving into the unsettling world of Wind Gap hasn’t been easy on the actors, either. “I think it’s been a burden for [Amy] to carry that character,” Noxon admits. The same goes for Clarkson, who calls Adora “the beauty and the beast,” before adding, “It’s a very brutal part and one that can take a toll on you.” Like mother, like daughter — off camera, at least.
Sharp Objects debuts on HBO summer 2018.
