Amy Adams Circling the MUPPETS, WE BOUGHT A ZOO, and WELCOME TO PEOPLE

     October 4, 2010

Amy Adams is reportedly considering roles in three upcoming films: James Bobin’s untitled Muppets movie, Cameron Crowe’s We Bought a Zoo, and Alex Kurtzman’s Welcome to People.  According to EW, negotiations for Muppets appear to be the most solid, but Disney isn’t commenting.  We don’t know much about the Muppet movie.  We know that Jason Segel co-wrote the script and will star and that the title is rumored to be The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made.  Co-writer Nicholas Stoller told Steve back in May that there are tons of cameos, it will be similar in tone to The Muppet Movie, and that the movie breaks the fourth wall every five minutes.

Hit the jump for more on We Bought a Zoo, Welcome to People, and what roles Adams might play in those films.

In We Bought a Zoo, Adams would play a zookeeper opposite a grieving widower (played by Matt Damon).  Based on the memoir by Benjamin Mee, We Bought a Zoo centers on Mee’s purchase of a dilapidated zoo and his attempts to renovate it.  EW reports that Crowe (who hasn’t directed a film since 2005’s Elizabethtown) is looking at a short list of actresses for the part.

Finally, Welcome to People is the directing debut of Star Trek and Transformers co-writer Alex Kurtzman.  Kurtzman co-wrote Welcome to People with writing partner Roberto Orci and close friend Jody Lambert.  The story (which is being “guided” by Steven Spielberg) is about a man (played by Chris Pine) who “must deliver $150,000 in cash to an alcoholic sister he didn’t know he had after the death of their father. Without telling her who he is, the guy also gets involved in the life of her angry 12-year-old son.”  Adams would play the sister.

The lovely and talented Adams will next be seen in theaters this December alongside Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg in David O. Russell’s The Fighter.
