Steve Martin: comedy legend, art collector, bluegrass musician and yes, novelist. While his attempts at conquering the literary world likely isn't be the first thing people talk about in regards to his legacy, it's no surprise Hollywood has been paying attention. Martin's novella "Shopgirl" was turned into the intermittently entertaining and should've-been-better movie starring Claire Danes and Jason Schwartzman, and now, his latest effort to hit bookshelves is headed to the big screen.

Amy Adams An Object Of Beauty
Steve Martin: comedy legend, art collector, bluegrass musician, and yes, novelist. While his attempts at conquering the literary world likely aren't going to be the first thing people talk about in regards to his legacy, it's no surprise Hollywood has been paying attention. Martin's novella "Shopgirl" was turned into the intermittently entertaining and should've-been-better movie starring Claire Danes and Jason Schwartzman, and now, his latest effort to hit bookshelves is headed to the big screen.

None other than Amy Adams will take the lead in "An Object Of Beauty," a title firmly worthy of the actress. Adams will also produce the effort, which is very early stages and doesn't yet seem to have a screenwriter on aboard, but the material has promise. Described as a "sardonic morality tale" (is there any other kind?), the story follows Lacey Yeager, a Sotheby's trained art entrepreneur, who sleeps and schemes her way to the top of the New York art world, opening her own gallery along the way. For Martin, who was famously the victim of a much publicized forgery, it's a world he knows well, and really, it's not one we see too often in the movies.

No word on when this will possibly go, but it's a way off yet. Until then, Adams is busy, having recently wrapped work on Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master," Walter Salles' "On The Road" and "Man Of Steel." She'll spend 2012 working with Clint Eastwood in "Trouble With The Curve" and the upcoming Spike Jonze love story. [THR]
