Teaser Watch: Amy Adams Heads Home to Investigate a Crime in HBO’s “Sharp Objects”

“Sharp Objects”

Amy Adams returns to the small screen after a decade-plus hiatus in “Sharp Objects.” The five-time Oscar nominee stars in HBO’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s 2006 best-selling novel, her first time on TV since her recurring gig on “The Office.” This time around, the “Arrival” star will be tackling much darker fare.

An atmospheric teaser has been released for the miniseries about an emotionally unstable reporter who returns to her small hometown to cover the murder of two pre-teen girls. She “finds herself identifying with the young victims — a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story — and survive this homecoming,” “Sharp Objects’” official synopsis hints.

“We need to talk about your daughters,” a character says through voiceover in the spot. “One of them is dangerous and the other one’s in danger.

Author: Zehra Phelan

An update on the status of an Enchanted sequel has arisen from the depths of the film’s development from the film’s director, Adam Shankman, revealing that the project is finally moving along.

The follow-up, which has been in development since 2010, will be titled Disenchanted and will follow Giselle – which sees Amy Adams reprise her role – 10 years after the original. Set in New York, Giselle may be rethinking her love of the real world.

Whilst on the Television Critics panel for Step Up: High Water, the YouTube Red series he is producing based on the Step Up films, Shankman divulged the information of where the production stands at this point and what we can expect to see if the final script is greenlit.

“We are handing in a script in a couple weeks that I’m super happy with,” Shankman said, “Then gotta get the music written.

Simon Brew Jan 16, 2018

Enchanted 2 is moving forward, with a script about to be handed in. No songs yet, though...

Progress has hardly been swift on the Enchanted sequel, Disenchanted, with a decade having now passed since the terrific original film. Still, the film received fresh impetus when Hairspray director Adam Shankman landed the job of directing. And in a new update, he’s confirmed that there’s been a few steps forward.

Enchanted 2 Script Is Almost Complete Says Director

In case you haven’t heard – or simply forgot since it’s been languishing in development hell since 2010 – Disney’s Enchanted is getting a sequel. Headed up by Adam Shankman, it’s going to be titled Disenchanted and has Amy Adams reprising her role as a fairytale princess who lands in the real world.

From what we understand, the movie picks up ten years after the events of the original. Princess Giselle (Adams) finds herself questioning her happily-ever-after with beau Robert, a New York divorce attorney who becomes her dream prince in the first film. Following that, Giselle’s doubts supposedly accidentally trigger events that will have serious repercussions in the real world as well as the fairy-tale kingdom of Andalasia.

It’s hardly a surprise that Enchanted has garnered a sequel – it was one of the most successful films of 2007, and actually quite groundbreaking in some ways. What’s

Enchanted 2 Script Is Almost Done, Will Include More Songs

After more than a decade, it looks like Enchanted 2 is finally coming together. Disney has been working on this sequel, slowly but surely, for a very long time now and it was starting to feel like the kind of thing that may not ever actually happen.

Enchanted at 10: revisiting the film with director Kevin Lima

Simon Brew Dec 18, 2017

With new exclusive behind the scenes pictures, director Kevin Lima takes us through Enchanted, as it hits its 10th birthday.

It’s been ten years since the terrific Enchanted arrived in UK cinemas, just under two months after it premiered at the London Film Festival. The film made a star of Amy Adams, brought back 2D animation from Disney to the big screen, and has a songbook that sits happily alongside the top end of Disney work. Plus, the film remains a flat out family treat.

“It has been a long time” Lima chuckled, apologising in advance if he couldn’t recall all the answers I was after. Turns out he didn’t do too badly. He spared me some time to look back over the film, the challenges of making it, and what happened next…

I’ve only just discovered that Enchanted actually had its premiere in the UK!

Culture Dump #20: 5 Actors who Really want to win an Oscar!

The 90th Academy Awards is just a few months away – and you can tell. The industry has stepped up its game by firing out its best and brightest titles in the hopes of bagging gold – but who’ll come out on top? While Oscar predictions can often be hit and miss, some stars wear their intentions very much on their sleeve when it comes to Academy approval. People like…

Joaquin Phoenix

When actors pick roles the old saying goes: one for them, one for you. Unless you’re Joaquin Phoenix. The Gladiator star seems to have dedicated his entire career to fully immersing himself in characters most likely to land him on the Best Actor shortlist. While he may have only been nominated thrice (Gladiator in 2001, Walk The Line in 2006 and The Master in 2013), you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s happened more, having starred in look-at-me awards fodder Her,

Kate Beckinsale Joins Adam Shankman’s The Chocolate Money

Ashley Prentice’s bestselling novel, The Chocolate Money is set to make its way onto the big screen in the near future. Kate Beckinsale has signed on to star in and produce the forthcoming adaptation, which centers on an impossibly rich chocolate heiress and her precocious young daughter, while Adam Shankman (Hairspray) has boarded as the film’s director. Production is set to begin later this spring.

The announcement arrives ahead of the Berlin Film Festival, which begins February 9 and is where producers try to sell their upcoming productions to curious investors. Beckinsale will be joined by fellow producers Mar-Key Pictures’ president Leslie Urdang, Miranda Pencier and Kelly E. Ashton (which is not my mother, even though they share the same name) on the upcoming project. Novelist Emma Forrest, meanwhile, wrote the screenplay for the new film.

Here’s what Urdang told THR:

Adam Shankman to Direct Kate Beckinsale in ‘Chocolate Money’

Adam Shankman to Direct Kate Beckinsale in ‘Chocolate Money’
In a pre-Berlin market move, Adam Shankman has come on board to direct Kate Beckinsale in mother-daughter drama “The Chocolate Money.”

Cornerstone Films will be launching international sales to buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin next month. UTA is repping domestic rights.

The project is based on Ashley Prentice Norton’s novel with Emma Forrest adapting. The story is set in 1980s New York, centered on the relationship between a rich chocolate heiress and her precocious young daughter.

The mother lives a free-wheeling, rock-star lifestyle, and her extravagant parties are legendary. Dazzled by her mother’s situation and constantly craving her attention, the daughter finds escape in reading beauty magazines and taking photos.

Beckinsale is producing with Mar-Key Pictures President Leslie Urdang, Miranda de Pencier and Kelly E. Ashton. Producers plan to begin shooting in New York City in the spring.

Shankman is directed from a script that Emma Forrest co-wrote with Beckinsale.

Amy Adams Talks Enchanted Sequel: It's What the World Needs Now

Amy Adams Talks Enchanted Sequel: It's What the World Needs Now
The Enchanted sequel can't come soon enough. "I don't know when it's starting, but we definitely have had conversations," Amy Adams, who starred in the 2007 movie as Giselle, told me at the Governors Awards. Adam Shankman is set to direct the follow-up, which will be called Disenchanted and will reportedly take place 10 years after the original movie ends. I reminded Adams of the time a few years ago that she told me she would be up for a sequel. "If the script is right, I still stand by that," the Nocturnal Animals star said. "I trust that the team they're putting together is putting together something that makes it timely. I think it's a good time in our world for...

Amy 'Arrives' This Friday

Just a few days until Arrival opens. It's one of the year's best movies and a mainstream sci-fi grandiosity that deserves success so do not miss it. I watched it with anxious wonder, something like the expression Amy aces at peak moments within the film.

Psycho Beach Party (2000)Up next for the 42 year old Oscar-Darling: the miniseries Sharp Objects (quick name an Oscar-bait actresses who isn't doing a miniseries in 2017 -- they're everywhere!) and two reprisal roles with Lois Lane again (sigh) in Justice League and Giselle again (yay) in Disenchanted.

Do you remember the first time you ever saw Amy Adams onscreen? For me it was either flirty bitchy "Marvel Ann" in Psycho Beach Party (2000) or "Cousin Beth" on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. But I first really paid attention and noted her name in Catch Me If You Can (2002).

‘Enchanted’ sequel ‘Disenchanted’ finds a director, eyes summer 2017 production start
It looks like Disney will indeed give us another movie poking fun at itself all the while celebrating its animated films à la the sly parody of The Princess Bride. Things are finally moving forward on the sequel to 2007’s Enchanted. Adam Shankman is in negotiations to direct the sequel, called Disenchanted, and Amy Adams is expected to return, The Hollywood Reporter posted today. Disney hopes to start production in summer 2017. I’m disappointed to see Anne Fletcher and her comedy chops apparently off the project (Fletcher, who helmed Ryan Reynolds/Sandra Bullock rom-com The Proposal, was previously attached to direct the Enchanted sequel when it was in development back in 2010). But if Shankman delivers a movie that’s as fun and packed with dazzling musical numbers as his Hairspray, then we should be in for a solid sequel. His other credits include the Rock of Ages movie, A Walk to Remember,

Hairspray Director In Talks To Helm Enchanted Sequel

It’s almost been a decade since Amy Adams hit the screen in the Disney animated/live-action hybrid film Enchanted. The movie told the story of an animated princess who finds herself in the very real New York City, where cynicism is in full effect and at odds with her own naive sensibilities. While the film on paper has the potential to be quite the cheese-fest, it ended up being a surprise hit with both fans and critics.

Back in 2010, Disney started developing a sequel to the film, and Anne Fletcher, director of such films as The Proposal and Step Up was even attached to take the lead on the film. It’s seven years later, and nothing has materialized. Like many films in Hollywood, it seems to have wallowed in development hell.

But a new report from THR indicates that the film’s sequel, Disenchanted, has starting to gain momentum once again.

Enchanted 2 Brings Back Amy Adams, Gets Hairspray Director

Enchanted 2 Brings Back Amy Adams, Gets Hairspray Director
Nearly nine years after it first hit theaters, Disney's follow-up to Enchanted, titled Disenchaned, has finally found its director. Hairspray and Rock of Ages director Adam Shankman is in talks to direct the Enchanted sequel, which the studio has been developing since 2010. Original Enchaned star Amy Adams is expected to reprise her role as princess Giselle. Although it isn't known if James Marsden or any of the other original cast members will be back for Enchanted 2.

The original Enchanted centered on Amy Adams' Giselle, who is set to marry her Prince Charming (James Marsden) before she is taken from her animated fantasy world and thrust into our real world in New York City. There she meets a lawyer (Patrick Dempsey) who is about to marry a woman (Idina Menzel) who is completely wrong for him. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Disenchanted will take place 10 years after the original movie,

Amy Adams: Queen of Fall Festivals and Heading for Oscars (Exclusive Tiff Video)

Amy Adams: Queen of Fall Festivals and Heading for Oscars (Exclusive Tiff Video)
It’s fun to watch a movie star at the height of her powers.

Amy Adams is in the zone. With five Oscar nominations (“Junebug,” “The Fighter,” “Doubt,” “The Master,” “American Hustle”), the red-haired beauty who can sing and dance (“Enchanted”) and just received a Telluride tribute is taking her pick of the best roles for women.

While Adams had planned to take some recovery time after two David O. Russell movies (she makes no secret that the “American Hustle” shoot was brutal for her), she couldn’t resist taking two plum leads this year.

In a Hollywood movie-star turn, she ably carries Denis Villeneuve’s brainy sci-fi thriller “Arrival” (November 11, Paramount) which wowed audiences and critics in Venice, Telluride, and Toronto. And she co-stars with Jake Gyllenhaal in Tom Ford’s exercise in style, “Nocturnal Animals,” which played Venice and Toronto and kicked up as many passionate supporters as detractors.
