Los Angeles: Actress Amy Adams will star in "Sharp Objects", the TV adaptation of Gillian Flynn's similarly named novel. Adams is also the film's executive producer, reports variety.com. Jean-Marc Vallee has been roped in as the director.
The story of "Sharp Objects" follows a reporter (played by Adams) who has to cover the murder of two pre-teen girls in her hometown following a brief stint in a psychiatric hospital.
The project marks Adams' first starring role for the small screen, though before shooting up to super-stardom, the Golden Globe-winning and Oscar-nominated actress had small roles on "The Office", "Smallville" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer". (IANS)
