Amy Adams Signs On To Star In NIGHTBITCH; Will Play A Woman Who Begins To Transform Into A Dog

Or thinks she's transforming into a dog... it's not really clear! Anyway, Adams will play the lead in Annapurna’s darkly comic horror film, Nightbitch, which will be directed by Marielle Heller.

Six-time Academy Award nominee Amy Adams has signed on to star in a new horror comedy called Nightbitch, and she'll play a woman who begins to transform into a dog.

Searchlight Pictures has acquired Annapurna’s project, which is described as a "darkly comic horror" adaptation of Rachel Yoder’s acclaimed debut novel. Can You Ever Forgive Me? director Marielle Heller will take the helm.

According to the official synopsis, Nightbitch tells the story of "a woman thrown into the stay-at-home routine of raising a toddler in the suburbs, who slowly embraces the feral power deeply rooted in motherhood, as she becomes increasingly aware of the bizarre and undeniable signs that she may be turning into a canine."

“Rachel Yoder’s book took my breath away. I haven’t felt this way about [a] book since I read The Diary of a Teenage Girl many years ago,” said Heller. “Rachel’s darkly hilarious tale of motherhood and rage made me feel seen. And adapting it with Amy Adams in mind has been the thing that has kept me going through the pandemic. I am so thrilled to be bringing this movie to life with wonderful partners in Anne Carey, Annapurna Pictures, and Searchlight. It is a dream come true.”

It's certainly an intriguingly batshit (or should that be dogshit?) premise, and we're looking forward to learning more about Nightbitch.

The film is being developed as a Hulu Original in the U.S., with additional release plans to be announced at a later date. Production kicks off in Los Angeles in September.
