Fresh from his Oscar success in Darkest Hour, Gary Oldman is set to reunite with Joe Wright on the director’s new film The Woman in the Window, THR has revealed.
A nod to the Alfred Hitchcock classic Rear Window, The Woman in the Window is based upon the book of the same name by A.J. Finn and follows “a child psychologist with severe agoraphobia (and a penchant for mixing alcohol with her medication) who hasn’t left her house in months. The woman witnesses a horrible crime involving a new neighboring family but no one, including the police, will believe her.”
Amy Adams (Arrival) is portraying the psychologist, Dr. Anna Fox, with Oldman set to play the father of the neighbours and Julianne Moore (Kingsman: The Golden Circle) as the mother. Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta) is also on board.
Pulitzer Prize-winning author Tracy Letts (August, Osage County) has written the script for the adaptation, while Scott Rudin (No Country for Old Men) and Eli Bush (Lady Bird) are producing.
Among Oldman’s upcoming projects are Steven Soderbergh’s The Laundromat, thrillers The Bayou and Killers Anonymous, and the fact-based drama Flying Horse, the latter of which he is also writing and directing.
