(the adorably naïve gal in Junebug) in another Oscar worthy role can stop holding our breath.
It has been announced that Adams is set to appear in Mike Nichols‘ exposé on American Intelligence, Charlie Wilson’s War. The film also
stars Tom Hanks, indie-fav Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Julia Roberts.

Adams, who is currently playing a
purebred and a princess in two other upcoming projects – the family friendly
films Underdog and Enchanted, should feel right at home having
previously worked with Hanks’ production team in Catch Me If You Can.

Uber Director Mike Nichols and crew will head out to Morocco this coming September to begin shooting
Charlie Wilson’s War based on the book by 60 Minutes producer George Crile and
written by Aaron Sorkin.

The book is about how former Texas congressman Wilson
persuaded the CIA to train and arm resistance fighters in Afghanistan,
engineering a victory that hastened the fall of the Soviet Union. Hanks plays
Wilson. Wilson teamed with a rogue CIA agent named Gust Avrakotos to keep the
Red Army from overrunning Afghanistan. Wilson found an outlet to use his gift
for maneuvering around red tape in Afghanistan. He and Avrakotos supplied money
and put together a team of experts to mold an army that fought the Red Army to
a stalemate.
