What happened? The casting of Adams began at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival, which Graf attended with his wife, Linda. Twenty minutes before the Sundance awards ceremony, Linda was in the women's restroom and ran into Adams, who starred in the Sundance entry "Junebug."

"I love dark and creepy," Amy Adams said. "Send me a script."
