Amy Adams (Arrival) is set to star in Searchlight Pictures’ darkly comic horror film Nightbitch—and Scoot McNairy (Monsters) has joined the cast.
Nightbitch “tells the story of a woman thrown into the stay-at-home routine of raising a toddler in the suburbs, who slowly embraces the feral power deeply rooted in motherhood, as she becomes increasingly aware of the bizarre and undeniable signs that she may be turning into a canine.” Marielle Heller (Can You Ever Forgive Me?) is directing the film, which is based on Rachel Yoder’s 2021 novel of the same name. Yoder also wrote the screenplay.
Variety reports that McNairy will star as the oft-travelling husband of Adams’ character. The film will release as a Hulu Original in the U.S.
