20th Century Studios was set to release director Joe Wright‘s (Hanna, Darkest Hour) new suspense thriller The Woman in the Window back in May but like a horde of other movies, it got delayed. Now, a new release date has been announced but the movie but it will no longer be heading to theaters, instead, it’s coming to Netflix sometime in the first half of this year, EW reports.
Entertainment Weekly quotes Wright as saying:
I’m very interested to see how people respond to the film and I can’t wait for its release,” Wright told Entertainment Weekly. “What I hope people will take away from this is a sense that our own fears can incarcerate us. And this is a story about a woman who manages to overcome her own fears, and leave them behind her.”
In the film, listed as a psychological suspense thriller, an agoraphobic child psychologist befriends a neighbor across the street, only to see her own life turned upside down when the woman disappears and in what she suspects is foul play.
Amy Adams (Arrival) leads the all-star cast that includes Julianne Moore (Hannibal, Psycho 1998), Gary Oldman (Bram Stoker’s Dracula), Anthony Mackie (Avengers: Endgame), Wyatt Russell (Overlord), Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight), and Brian Tyree Henry (Child’s Play 2019).
The screenplay is from Tracy Letts (Killer Joe, Bug) and is based on the best-selling novel by A.J. Finn.
