The first photos are online from Tate Taylor’s upcoming film adaptation of literary sensation “The Girl on the Train”. Emily Blunt plays a lonely, alcoholic divorcee who uses her daily commute to fantasize about the seemingly perfect life of the couple (Luke Evans and Hayley Bennett) she glimpses every day when the train stops at the signal.
One day, however, she sees something shocking during the train’s routine stop, and subsequently becomes entangled in a web of intrigue. The film shifts the action from London to Manhattan, a move that Taylor says works as the character will remain British and thus increase her sense of isolation: “She’s trying to reclaim or redefine herself, and yet she’s not in her native land.
Justin Theroux and Rebecca Ferguson also star in the film which opens October 7th.
