The Woman in the Window Sets Release Date For Netflix Debut
Netflix has finally announced the release date for Joe Wright’s upcoming thriller film The Woman in the Window. Originally set for theatrical release, the Amy Adams-led film will now be available for streaming on May 14. The announcement comes after nearly two months since Netflix successfully acquired the rights to the long-delayed feature from 20th Century Studios. The Woman in the Window was first delayed back in 2019 due to negative test screenings. Because of this, it had to go through reshoots to correct some confusing plot points.
Adams will next be seen in the film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen. She is also set to reprise her iconic role as Giselle in Disney+’s upcoming Enchanted sequel titled Disenchanted.
In The Woman in the Window, an agoraphobic child 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. A stellar ensemble cast brings Tracy Letts’ screenplay based on the gripping, best-selling novel to life, where shocking secrets are revealed, and no one-and nothing-is what it seems.
The film features an A-list ensemble that includes five-time Academy-Award nominee Amy Adams (Arrival) and Academy-Award winners Julianne Moore (Still Alice) and Gary Oldman; the latter reuniting with his Darkest Hour director. It will also star Anthony Mackie, Wyatt Russell, Brian Tyree Henry, and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
The Woman in the Window is directed by Joe Wright from a script written by Tracy Letts. It is produced by Scott Rudin (Lady Bird, No Country for Old Men), Eli Bush (Lady Bird, Annihilation), and Antony Katagas.
