STORY OF YOUR LIFE will be directed by Dennis Villenueve (PRISONERS, INCENDIES) and is written by Eric Heisserer, who adapted the script from the short story by Ted Chiang.
Adams stars as an expert linguist recruited by the military to determine whether a group of aliens on Earth come in peace or are a threat.
FilmNation is financing and producing Story of Your Life with David Linde's Lava Bear Productions. Sean Levy's 21 Laps is also producing. Aaron Ryder and Karen Lunder will oversee production of the film on behalf of FilmNation, while Tory Metzger shepherds on behalf of Lava Bear. Dan Levine and Dan Cohen are spearheading for 21 Laps.
