HBO Teases Amy Adams’ ‘Sharp Objects’ Adaptation from Gillian Flynn
Take a look at the next Gillian Flynn adaptation coming to HBO
Tonight was the big premiere of “Westworld: Season 2” and HBO used the network’s captive audience to preview the upcoming adaptation of “Sharp Objects”. The new series is coming to HBO this summer, and is based on the book by Gillian Flynn.
Flynn’s work has been a popular source for feature films, the author’s “Gone Girl” adaptation starring Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, and Neil Patrick Harris made almost $370M at the worldwide box-office, and she recently wrote a screenplay for the film “Widows” set to star Viola Davis, Liam Neeson, and Elizabeth Debicki. This will be the first television series based on one of Flynn’s works, and it comes with an impressive cast.
In “Sharp Objects,” a reporter (Amy Adams) returns home to cover a grisly murder. Joining Amy Adams in the series are Patricia Clarkson, Chris Messina, Eliza Scanlen, Elizabeth Perkins and Matt Craven. HBO hasn’t set an exact premiere date for the new series yet, but the launch is currently scheduled for sometime in July of this year. The series will be available on HBO and the network’s streaming services, so you’ll have to keep that subscription going through the summer. Since you have a few more months before the big premiere, you can use that time to read the book that series is based on, you will be free of spoilers and usually the book offers up the better story. You can grab the book on sites like Amazon starting at about $9.
Fans of Flynn can watch the teaser-trailer below, and set a date to catch the limited-series when it hits HBO this summer. If you’re here because you’re a fan of Amy Adams, then you should know that she will soon be hard at work on a follow up to “Enchanted,” this one called “Disenchanted,” and will once again be starring opposite Patrick Dempsey.
