    It’s actually happening! Amy Adams and GLenn CLose to star!

    https://variety.com/2019/film/news/glenn-close-hillbilly-elegy-amy-adams-ron-howard-1203186554/

    Based on J.D. Vance’s bestselling memoir, the pic is a modern exploration of the American dream and follows three generations of an Appalachian family as told by its youngest member, a Yale law student forced to return to his hometown. Close will play the grandmother of the family.

    “The Shape of Water” screenwriter Vanessa Taylor adapted the script, with Howard, Brian Grazer, and Karen Lunder producing for Imagine Entertainment. Julie Oh and Vance will executive produce.

    As a fan of Ron Howard’s work as director, I was already intrigued by this. Now with the casting of both Amy Adams and Glenn Close, I’m even more intrigued.

    Ron Howard’s film history has a track record of all his actors who’ve won SAG have lost the Oscars lol

    Ed Harris – Apollo 13
    Russell Crowe – A Beautiful Mind
    Paul Giamatti – Cinderella Man

    Hopefully someone breaks the curse lol

    Russell Crowe probably would’ve won the Oscar for A Beautiful Mind had it not been for his meltdown at BAFTA late in the season.

    Could we see two of the most overdue actresses, win for the same film? I’m hopeful.

    I believe Close is winning for Sunset Boulevard. Would be cool to see Close win two on the night.

    The book is pretty bad, but both Close and Adams have great roles.

    Adams is leading and Close supporting? what you think?

    I had a co worker who was reading this book for a class and kept getting SO ANGRY at it and writing in the marginalia. Some of his stories are 100% bs. Hopefully the actors can make something out of it.

    Just happy Close has something other than Sunset Blvd. Everyone who insist it’s a contender are setting yourselves up for disappointment.

    It turned out Close took advantage of her loss really well. Just more than one month later and 2 big juicy roles coming up… while we have heard virtually nothing about the actual winners.

    King’s current prospects are TV bound. Colman is also tethered to a TV obligation.

    Will this be completed by the end of this year? Funny Reese Witherspoon joked on twitter the night of the Oscars that she wanted to make a film with the two of them…….and now someone is.
