Sounds like a nice change of pace from Wright's usual diet of genteel, ornately-designed period pieces. More good filmmakers should dabble in the occasional adaptation of Airport Novels (David Fincher knocked both of his out of the park).

That is a wild article, if a little salacious; one gets the sense that Parker had some connections in the British publishing world who wanted to get some (metaphorical) knives into Mallory.

Hopefully Letts and Wright can do something interesting with what the article intimates is just an mash-up of
SpoilerShow
Rear Window, The Woman on the Train and Jon Amiel's 1995 film Copycat, the latter of which was the first thing I thought of when I heard the plot summary for this.

From reading the New Yorker piece, I think his only real crime was embarrassing the publishing industry by proving how easily they could be played. How many "domestic thrillers" have they published in the past few years, nakedly chasing a trend?

“I just don’t understand why it isn’t called ‘Woman AT the Window’. At least Fritz Lang had his prepositions straight.”

Audiences were actually confused as to why the filmmakers revealed where the woman was.


On a more serious note how confusing could it have possibly been? I was under the impression that this was just pulp noir? Perhaps I have answered my own question just now?

Somehow I trust Letts and Wright more than I do some test audience, but the notes the studio got must be really bad to postpone their one-time awards player for a year. Can presumably cross this off the Amy Adams Oscar Prayer Circle program though

Needs more CGI robots and explosions, plus a mid-credits scene that ties the film into the Gone Girl Cinematic Universe.
