Amy Adams’ Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Arrival’ Gets November Release

Paramount has given an awards-season release date of Nov. 11 to Amy Adams sci-fi thriller “Arrival,” formerly titled “Story of Your Life.”

Denis Villeneuve (“Prisoners”) is directing from Eric Heisserer’s script, based on the “Story of Your Life” short story by Ted Chiang about an alien spacecraft landing on Earth. Adams plays a linguist for the military who’s trying to determine the intentions of the aliens and begins experiencing vivid flashbacks that become the key to unlocking the true purpose of their visit.

Jeremy Renner is portraying a physics professor helping Adams’ character communicate with the aliens. Forest Whitaker and Michael Stuhlbarg also star.

Adams first came on board the project in April, 2014. Producers are 21 Laps’ Shawn Levy and Dan Levine, David Linde, Karen Lunder and Aaron Ryder.

The Nov. 11 date has four other titles set for release — EuropaCorp’s thriller “Shut In,” starring Naomi Watts; Sony’s “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk,” directed by Ang Lee; Universal’s comedy “Almost Christmas”; and Fox’s “Rules Don’t Apply,” starring Warren Beatty as Howard Hughes.

Adams has received five Academy Award nominations for “Junebug,” “Doubt,” “The Fighter,” “The Master” and “American Hustle.”
