A film about a woman unable to leave her home — not unlike most of us these days — finally has a home of its own.
“The Woman in the Window,” perhaps more well-known for its years of delays and reshoots, will hit Netflix in the first half of 2021, Entertainment Weekly reported Thursday.
The mystery-thriller, based on A.J. Finn’s 2018 book of the same name, is the latest film from “Pride & Prejudice” and “Atonement” director Joe Wright and stars Amy Adams as agoraphobic Dr. Anna Fox, who drinks as often as she spies on her neighbors 1/4 u00e0 la Jimmy Stewart in “Rear Window.”
When Disney purchased 20th Century Fox, of which “The Woman in the Window” was a title, the film was slated for a 2019 release, which turned into 2020.
After test screenings left audiences confused, leading to reshoots, the coronavirus pandemic hit.
“Oh my God,” Wright, 48, told the outlet upon discussing the release saga.
Regarding the film’s earlier cut, the Golden Globe nominee admitted aspects of the plot may have been “too opaque” and while there was no desire to “oversimplify ... you have to give the audience something to hold on to” and “lead them through the labyrinth of mystery and fear.”
