Amy Adams set for Steve Martin's An Object of Beauty
Given he’s one of my favorite comedians of all time, I don’t normally think of Steve Martin as an author. But he’s written a few books, one of which , SHOP GIRL, was turned into a film which he also starred in. As funny as he is, his novels tend to have a more serious undertone, such is the case with his latest effort, AN OBJECT OF BEAUTY. The film follows a woman who sleeps and lies her way to the top of the New York art world, getting her own gallery in the process.
Amy Adams is set to star in the film, which will be quite a departure from her family-friendly films America has grown accustomed to seeing her in. There’s no word yet on when filming will start or if Steve Martin himself will star. Unless the shoot is extremely short, I don’t see this getting started for a while since Adams has Spike Jonze’s next film, as well as THE TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE and MAN OF STEEL (among others) still on the horizon.
