    Here's some news that is out of this world.

    Amy Adams is in negotiations to star in Story of Your Life, a film adaptation of a short story by sci-fi author Ted Chiang.

    According to Deadline, which first reported the possible casting, the movie "takes place after alien crafts land around the world, and an expert linguist (Adams' would-be role) is recruited by the military to determine whether they come in peace or are a threat. As she learns to communicate with the aliens, she begins experiencing vivid flashbacks that become the key to unlocking the greater mystery about the true purpose of their visit."

    The movie will be directed by Denis Villeneuve, who has helmed such flicks as Incendies and last year's Prisoners starring Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Viola Davis, Maria Bello, Melissa Leo and Terrence Howard.

    Adams was recently up for a Best Actress Oscar for her work in American Hustle. She just wrapped production on Tim Burton's Big Eyes, in which she portrays painter Margaret Keane.

    Production on Story of Your Life is slated to begin sometime next year.
