Swedish actress Rebecca Ferguson (‘Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation,’ ‘The White Queen’) and Haley Bennett (‘The Equaliser’) have scored roles opposite Emily Blunt in the Hitchcockian thriller ‘The Girl on the Train.’
Adapted from the best-selling novel by Paula Hawkins, the thriller follows Rachel (Blunt), devastated by her recent divorce, who 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.
Deadline hears that ‘Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation’ star Ferguson will take the role of Anna Watson, while Bennett will play Megan.
Tate Taylor is behind the camera, directing from a script by Erin Cressida Wilson. Marc Platt will produce, while Jared LeBoff of Marc Platt Productions will serve as executive producer.
