The Girl on the Train is a film that might wander through a host of different theories, and films that may seem like similar theories pop up a few times a year, as direct-to-video or cable network efforts.
I hope potential audiences take into account the well-received book this is based on, and Director Tate Taylor‘s abilities when deciding on this one. Taylor, of The Help and Get On Up, should fit well in this odd ride, even if his work doesn’t make that obvious to everyone. He has knack for conversations and moments of introspection that should translate brilliantly to this, admittedly Rear Window-esque, thriller.
Of course, Emily Blunt may convince you as well.
The film has finally released some looks at more of what’s going on in the film, notably other members of the cast who make up what The Girl on the Train is looking at.
The film hits on October 7th, and has a truly remarkable cast.
Take a look, and put this one on your calendar.
Emily Blunt, Rebecca Ferguson, Justin Theroux, Haley Bennett, Edgar Ramirez and Allison Janney star in DreamWorks Pictures’ The Girl on the Train, from director Tate Taylor (The Help, Get on Up) and producer Marc Platt (Bridge of Spies, Into the Woods). In the thriller, Rachel (Blunt), who is devastated by her recent divorce, spends her daily commute fantasizing about the seemingly perfect couple who live in a house that her train passes every day, until one morning she sees something shocking happen there and becomes entangled in the mystery that unfolds.
Based on Paula Hawkins’ bestselling novel, The Girl on the Train is adapted for the screen by Erin Cressida Wilson. The film’s executive producers are Jared LeBoff and Celia Costas, and it will be released by Universal Pictures.
