Sharp Objects starring Amy Adams: First trailer #book2movie

Amy Adams in Sharp Objects

Many of us, after reading Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and seeing just how good David Fincher’s screen adaptation turned out to be,  devoured the author’s  Sharp Objects and Dark Places hoping for work in a similar vein. 

Dark Places was sadly disappointing, both the book and the film, even with Charlize Theron in the lead role. Sharp Objects, on the other hand, was a book I enjoyed tremendously—you can take a look at my take on the book here—and my expectations for the 8 episode HBO series are high.

Now HBO has released the first trailer for the 8-episode series starring Amy Adams, Patricia Clarkson—who we’ll be seeing this summer in The Bookshop, Chris Messina, Eliza Scanlen, Elizabeth Perkins and Matt Craven. 

The logline:

A reporter confronts the psychological demons from her past when she returns to her hometown to cover a violent murder.

Even if you haven’t read the book, a look at the razor blade on the book’s cover should tell you a bit more about how those demons come to the surface. Directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, who helmed Big Little Lies, from a script by Marti Noxon (Glee, Mad Men), Sharp Objects is due out in July 2018 on HBO.

Will Sharp Objects live up to David Fincher’s adaptation of Flynn’s Gone Girl? Lay it on me. I’m all ears.
