Netflix is hell-bent on dishing endless content
As if the numerous productions it has going isn’t enough to quell fans’ appetite, Netflix has set its sight on The Woman in the Window, an upcoming thriller starring Amy Adams.
Deadline reveals that the streaming platform is currently negotiating to acquire the film from Disney-owned 20th Century Fox.
The Woman in the Window is based on the bestselling thriller novel by A.J. Finn and was initially slated for an October 2019 release but was delayed until May 2020 when it got negative early test screenings and had to be completely taken off its release schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Directed by Joe Wright, the film stars Amy Adams as Anna Fox, an agoraphobic child specialist who lives in a New York home watching old films and spying on her neighbors through her windows.
When Anna thinks she witnesses her neighbor’s murder one night, she descends into paranoia, unsure of whom to trust or confide in.
It seems movie fans love a demented Russell Crowe…
Per a report from Variety, road rage thriller Unhinged topped the UK and Ireland box office during the weekend, grossing £175,263 ($229,000).
The film played at 243 locations, marking a cautious return by movie lovers to cinemas despite the region being in the middle of a heatwave.
It was released by Altitude Film Distribution and the company while commenting on its box office performance, stated:
Over the past few months, we have shared the well-publicized concern about the state and future of cinema and the arts. Whilst this remains unclear as we all learn to cope with COVID-19, we’re encouraged by the support ‘Unhinged’ received from cinemas and audiences in its opening weekend.”
Coming from Sony Pictures, the movie will be directed by David Leitch, with a script from Zak Olkewicz based on the Japanese novel Maria Beetle by Kotaro Isaka.
The plot revolves around five assassins who “find themselves on a fast-moving train from Tokyo to Morioka with only a few stops in-between”.
The killers find out that missions are not unrelated to one another and the question of who makes it off the train alive and what awaits them at the terminal station becomes a focal point.
Joey King will reportedly feature in a supporting role which has been said to be “her most action-heavy part to date, giving King a role that could lead to more roles in films like it in the future…”
