Amy Adams, 47, will play an original role in Rachel Yoder’s hit novel Nightbitch.
The plot of the book is based on a woman who becomes depressed from heavy maternal responsibilities. Gradually, it becomes more and more difficult for her to get rid of aggression and disappointment, and then she begins to feel that she is turning into a dog.
In addition to mystical realism, there is also humor in the work. Many readers have compared this book to Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis, but overall it’s more like a thriller.
The script for the film was written by director Marielle Heller, who previously made a film based on the book Diary of a Teenage Girl. Now she was excited by the story told by Rachel Yoder. Mariel can’t wait to bring her to the screen.
Filming for The Night Bitch will begin in September 2022 in Los Angeles, according to Variety . The upcoming film is described as a “dark comic neo-horror”
