Amy Adams As Jason Segel once sang, "Life is a happy song." That's a certainty. Of course, murder can sort of put a strain on that mentality. Segel's The Muppets costar, Amy Adams (who, among a cast of beloved bug-eyed puppets, was quite possibly the most adorable character onscreen) is taking up with a particularly severe new project: Dark Places, written and directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner from the novel by Gillian Flynn.

The story will center on Adam's character, who, in childhood, lost her parents to a brutal murder... one that was eventually pinned on her brother, after she testified against him in court. The movie will pick up when a full-grown Adams begins to have doubts about the verdict after a secret society of de facto investigators takes a look at her case, bent on proving that there is more than meets the eye.

From her attachment to this group, Adam's character's starts to question whether her brother may well have been wrongfully imprisoned and abandoned by his only remaining family member after suffering through the horrendous slaughter of his own parents.

Wokka wokka!
