Paramount’s upcoming sci-fi drama Story of Your Life starring Amy Adams has been given a new title and a release date that will put it in line for awards consideration, EW has confirmed.

With the new title Arrival, the movie will be released on November 11. Denis Villeneuve (SicarioPrisoners) directs the film, which also stars Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker.

Eric Heisserer wrote the screenplay from Ted Chiang’s short story about an expert linguist (Adams) who is recruited to determine if alien crafts that have recently populated the earth are peaceful or a threat.

During his time filming Sicario, Villeneuve was announced as director for the Blade Runner sequel starring Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, and Mackenzie Davis. Heisserer’s previous writing credits include Final Destination 5 and 2010’s A Nightmare on Elm Street.
