The Poisonwood Bible – TBA (Announced)
In addition to The Most Fun We Ever Had, Amy Adams has another project lined up with HBO. Specifically, she’s set to develop an adaptation of Barbara Kingsolver’s novel, The Poisonwood Bible, into a limited series. The Pultizer Prize-nominated story, published back in 1998, follows the wife of an evangelical missionary (Adams) as she takes her four children to the Belgian Congo during colonial upheaval in 1959, as Deadline reported last year.
In addition to playing the lead role, Adams is expected to executive produce this mini-series as well. Kingsolver and the aforementioned Anya Epstein, meanwhile, will serve as writers on this new project. It’s unclear if the overlapping talent involved in this project and the one mentioned previously suggests that this new show fell through, but there haven’t been any reports to suggest otherwise. Nevertheless, developments for this TV adaptation haven’t been quick.
