Amy Adams stars in the film adaptation of the best-selling novel The Woman in the Window and the movie has been sitting on the shelf for over a year.
The film was originally supposed to hit theaters in October 2019, but after some audiences in test screenings felt the plot was too confusing, the release was delayed so that reshoots could be completed.
“There were some plot points that people found a bit confusing — I would say possibly too opaque maybe,” director Joe Wright told EW. “So we had to go back and clarify certain points, but I think also we tried to make sure we didn’t oversimplify anything and make things too clear. There’s an enjoyment in not knowing what’s going on, but at the same time, you have to give the audience something to hold on to — you have to lead them through the labyrinth of mystery and fear.”
A new release date was scheduled for May 2020, but when the pandemic hit, the theatrical release was canceled.
Now, the movie has been acquired by Netflix and EW reports that it will stream “in the first half of the year.”
In the upcoming film, Amy plays Anna Fox, an agoraphobic child psychologist who lives alone in a New York suburb, and while spying on some of her neighbors, witnesses something she shouldn’t have. Anthony Mackie, Wyatt Russell, and Gary Oldman also star. Watch the trailer below!
