VARIETY – Searchlight Pictures has acquired worldwide rights to Annapurna’s “Nightbitch,” with six-time Oscar-nominee Amy Adams set to star. Marielle Heller wrote and will direct the film adaptation of Rachel Yoder’s acclaimed debut novel.
The movie, described as a “darkly comic neo-horror,” is currently in pre-production, with a scheduled production start this September in Los Angeles. “Nightbitch” will stream as a Hulu Original in the U.S., with additional release plans to be announced.
According to the official logline, Adams stars in the project as a woman “thrown into the stay-at-home routine of raising a toddler in the suburbs, who slowly embraces the feral power deeply rooted in motherhood, as she becomes increasingly aware of the bizarre and undeniable signs that she may be turning into a canine.”
In addition to starring in the project, Adams — who will next be seen in “Disenchanted,” the long-awaited follow-up to Disney’s smash hit “Enchanted” — also produces alongside Stacy O’Neil, via their Bond Group production banner. Bond Group and Annapurna initially acquired the rights to develop Yoder’s novel into the screenplay with Heller, with Searchlight acquiring the rights to the movie in a competitive worldwide sale.

What a night it was. A wonderful night on the red carpet of “Dear Evan Hansen” for its Los Angeles premiere. Take a look in the gallery where I uploaded 93 photos of Amy Adams from the event.
Amy Adams “visits” Seth Meyers on his show to promote Dear Evan Hansen, a little bit of Disenchanted and above all her performance as a Tik Tok dancer.
During a chat with “Dear Evan Hansen Movie” stars Ben Platt, Julianne Moore and Amandla Stenberg about taking the play to the screen, fellow star Amy Adams surprises the group by Skyping in from the set of the upcoming sequel to “Enchanted,” which happens to be one of Kelly’s favorite movies …and she reacts accordingly. Amy and Julianne also reveal why they wanted to be a part of the movie after seeing the musical.
