Amy Adams Joins ‘Hillbilly Elegy’ by J.D. Vance

‘Amy Adams has signed on to star in the Ron Howard-directed Hillbilly Elegy, the high budget adaption to J.D. Vance’s bestselling memoir from Netflix.

It’s a modern exploration of the American Dream and three generations of an Appalachian family as told by its youngest member, a Yale Law student forced to return to his hometown.

The Shape Of Water co-writer Vanessa Taylor penned the script. Howard is producing the project with his Imagine Entertainment partner Brian Grazer and the company’s Karen Lunder. Julie Oh is the exec producer.’
