Amy Adams Movie 'The Woman in the Window' , based on the novel of the same name by A. J. Finn, will now stream on Netflix sometime in the first half of 2021.
The Woman in the Window, Joe Wright‘s thriller based on the best-selling book of the same name, was originally due out in 2019. However, disastrous test screenings caused the film to be delayed for reshoots. It was delayed to various dates in 2020, but then the coronavirus delayed it even further. In August of 2020, word broke that Netflix was nearing a deal for the flick. And now all the deals are done and it’s set to “stream on Netflix in the first half of the year.”
In the film, “An agoraphobic psychologist befriends a neighbor across the street from her New York City brownstone, only to see her own life turned upside down when the woman disappears and she suspects foul play.” Amy Adams stars as the woman in the window, while the rest of the cast includes some pretty impressive folks, like Gary Oldman, Anthony Mackie, Fred Hechinger, Wyatt Russell, Brian Tyree Henry, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Julianne Moore.
Regarding the reshoots, Wright said: "There were some plot points that people found a bit confusing - I would say possibly too opaque maybe," and added: "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."
