Adams Is Queen of Sheba Daughter

Amy Adams (“Enchanted,” “Doubt”) will star in the indie drama “Daughter of the Queen of Sheba” reports Variety.

Based on the biography of NPR correspondent Jacki Lyden, the story centers on how a woman uses her mother’s madness and delusions to empower herself.

Lyden was NPR’s first correspondent on the air in the aftermath of 9/11 and went to Afghanistan soon after the Taliban fell.

Karen Croner will adapt the script while Susan Cartsonis and Matt Williams (What Women Want) will produce.
