Amy Adams has jumped on board a new film project that’s set up at Annapurna Pictures titled Nightbitch. The film will be an adaptation of Rachel Yoder’s upcoming debut novel of the same name.
The film with a dark comedy that is said to expose “the absurd and feral truths of motherhood.” It tells the story of an “unnamed woman and former artist, thrust into stay-at-home domesticity after the birth of her son, who becomes increasingly worried and convinced that she may be turning into a dog.”
Here the synopsis of the book below from the author’s website:
In Nightbitch, an unnamed woman and former artist, thrust into stay-at-home domesticity after the birth of her son, becomes worried she’s turning into a dog. Her husband, who travels for work five days a week, easily dismisses her fears from hotel rooms. Meanwhile, the mother is forced to contend with the very real physical manifestations of her solitary anxiety, with only her two-year-old son for company.
As her symptoms intensify, she struggles to keep her alter-canine-identity secret. Finally jolted to action after an impulsive and disastrous encounter with the family cat, she seeks a cure for her condition in an herbal multi-level marketing scheme, a group of mommies all inexplicably named Jen, and Wanda White, a mysterious academic specializing in “mythical ethnography.”
Well, this certainly sounds like it’ll make for an interesting movie. The author of the book will also write the screenplay and will be an executive producer alongside Megan Ellison, Sue Naegle, and Sammy Scher.
