British filmmaker Joe Wright (‘Darkest Hour,’ ‘Hanna,’ ‘Anna Karenina’ ‘Atonement’ director) and Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Tracy Letts are teaming up for a film adaptation of A.J. Finn’s best-selling thriller ‘The Woman in the Window.’
The book, published earlier this year, centres on agoraphobic, former child psychologist, Anna Fox. Unable to venture outside her New York City home, Anna spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times . . . and spying on her neighbours.
When the Russell family moves into the house across the way, Anna is instantly drawn to them. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, witnesses something she shouldn’t, her world begins to crumble—and it’s shocking secrets are laid bare.
Letts will shape the script, while Eli Bush (‘Isle of Dogs.’ ‘Lady Bird’) and Scott Rudin (“No Country for Old Men,’ ‘The Social Network’) serve as producers.
