HBO And Amy Adams Poisonwood Bible Adaptation Moving Forward

Back in January of 1999 Barbara Kingsolver’s The Poisonwood Bible was on the NY Times best-sellers list.  The novel has continued to have great success over the decades and is now making its way to HBO.

Deadline reported that six-time Oscar-nominated and two-time Golden Globe-winning actress Amy Adams, and her manager Stacy O’Neil, have signed a deal with HBO under their new production company, Bond Group Entertainment. The first project under the deal will be Poisonwood Bible, based off of the Kingsolver novel, and will be released as a limited series.

Below is a plot summary for Poisonwood Bible:

Poisonwood Bible, based on Kingsolver’s novel, follows Orleanna Price, the wife of an evangelical missionary who takes her and their four daughters to the Belgian Congo in the midst of colonial upheaval in 1959. What follows is a suspenseful epic of tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction in the interlocked fates of one family and a newly independent African nation.”

If you have never read the novel, I would highly recommend running to your local book store (let’s be real, more like Amazon Prime) and pick up a copy.  It is a great read which I am interested to see in this limited series format.  The book is always better, but will that be the case in this instance?

What are your thoughts?  Will you be checking out the new upcoming HBO/Bond Group Entertainment interpretation on the small screen?  Leave your thoughts in the usual spot, and thanks for reading!
