Amy Adams is in early talks to team with “Prisoners” helmer Denis Villeneuve on the sci-fi thriller “Story of Your Life”, says Deadline.

Based on a short story by Ted Chiang, “the thriller takes place after alien crafts land around the world. An expert linguist 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.”

Eric Heisserer (“The Thing”) scripted the film, which would be somewhat of a departure for both Adams and Villeneuve.
