“The Woman in the Window,” featuring former Theatre Palisades star Amy Adams, is waiting for an updated release date after moving its May 15 theatrical release due to COVID-19.
The film follows the story of Dr. Anna Fox (Adams), who is living alone with agoraphobia in New York when she begins spying on her new neighbors, only to witness a disturbing act of violence.
The now-completed Fox 2000 psychological thriller is based on an adaptation of A.J. Finn’s novel by the same name. The page-turner topped The New York Times Bestseller lists, as well as book lists in multiple countries.
After the Disney-Fox merger, Disney pushed the original film release date, October 4, 2019, to give it time for re-shoots to clarify the third act, following negative test audience response.
“The Woman in the Window” marks the final film under the Fox 2000 banner.
Adams began her career in Los Angeles playing the role of “Baby McGrath” in the Theatre Palisades production of “Crimes of the Heart” in 2000.
More recently, Adams garnered 2019 Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for the HBO miniseries, “Sharp Objects.”
The film’s supporting cast includes Gary Oldman, Anthony Mackie, Fred Hechinger, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Julianne Moore. Joe Wright (“The Darkest Hour,” “Atonement”) directs.
Tracy Letts penned the screenplay with producers Scott Rudin (“No Country for Old Men”) and Eli Bush (“Lady Bird”).
The crime drama mystery has an R rating for violence and language. No new release date had been confirmed as the Palisadian-Post went to print Tuesday.
