Amy Adams set for ‘Queen of Sheba’

Karen Croner script based on Jacki Lyden bio

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

Script, penned 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 for the radio pubcaster 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.

Adams stars opposite Meryl Streep in the upcoming “Doubt” and in “Julie and Julia.” She also appears opposite Ben Stiller in “Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian.”

Croner’s credits include “One True Thing” and “Tribes of Palos Verdes.”

Adams is repped by Endeavor and the Firm.
