The Oscar-nominee will play a social-climbing art dealer
Amy Adams will star in and produce "Object of Beauty."
The Oscar-nominee will partner with Maven Picture to bring the story of a social-climbing gallery dealer to the screen.
The part is far removed from the nice girls that Adams made her reputation playing in films like "Enchanted" and "Doubt" — although she did memorably break type with her sexually confidant bartender in "The Fighter."
In "Object of Beauty," Adams will play Lacey Yeager, a clever young art entrepreneur. Over a decade and a half, Lacey flies from New York to Russia to Washington, D.C., to scout and buy art, steals a cherished family painting and sleeps with and disposes of several men, including one who becomes a famous artist.
The actress just wrapped production on the new Superman film, “Man of Steel,” and is about to begin production on “Trouble with a Curve" opposite Clint Eastwood and Justin Timberlake. She also will be seen in Paul Thomas Anderson's upcoming "The Master."
