Amy Adams Is THE WOMAN

The news media is all over the announcement that Amy Adams will star in the film version of A.J. Finn’s best seller, The Woman in the Window (HarperCollins/Morrow, 2018). The book spent four weeks at #1 on the NYT Best Seller list, remaining in the top 5 for seven more weeks. It is curently at #9.

British director Joe Wright will head the movie. He won multiple Oscars last year, including Best Picture, for his film about Churchill’s early days as Britain’s prime minister, The Darkest Hour. Wright has had experience with book adaptations, having had success with Atonement, Pride & Prejudice and Anna Karenina. His adaptation of JM Barrie’s Pan, however, was a critical and box office flop.

Wright is also signed to direct a movie based on John Williams’s 1965 cult favoriteStoner, (NY Review of Books) starring Casey Affleck and Tommy Lee Jones. According to reports, that film is moving toward production, so it could be at least a year before work begins on Woman.

Adams will soon be seen in another hotly anticipated thriller adaption, the HBO series based on Gillian Flynn’s debut novel, Sharp Objects (PRH/ Shaye Areheart, 2006), expected for release in July.

Tie-ins for it will be released on June.
