Amy Adams Set for Queen of Sheba


Amy Adams will star in the indie drama Daughter of the Queen of Sheba for producers Susan Cartsonis and Matt Williams (What Women Want), reports Variety.

The script, written by Karen Croner based on the bio of NPR correspondent Jacki Lyden, centers on how a woman uses her mother’s madness and delusions to empower herself.

Lyden was NPR’s first correspondent on the air in the aftermath of 9/11 and went to Afghanistan soon after the Taliban fell. She’s working on a book about the secret lives of a small group of Iraqi friends and reported on the slaying of her translator by an American soldier.
