Hot off the heels of Paula Hawkins’ best selling novel, a movie adaptation of The Girl on the Train was quickly put into development with Steven Spielberg producing. The thriller follows Emily Blunt (Sicario) as an alcoholic who spies on a couple (Hayley Bennett and Luke Evans) only to get caught up in something very serious.
The film is directed by Tate Taylor and also stars Rebecca Ferguson, Laura Prepon, Edgar Ramirez, Justin Theroux, Allison Janney, and Lisa Kudrow. Check out the trailer here.
Book Synopsis: Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.
And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?
The Girl on the Train hits theaters on October 7th, 2016.
