The Woman in the Window gets Re-Shoots

Mystery Thriller with Amy Adams Pushed to 2020

The thriller The Woman in the Window is based on the book of the same name by A.J. Finn and is about a child psychologist who observes a crime in front of her house. Unfortunately, the woman suffers from agoraphobia, so she is afraid to leave her own house.

The film which is produced by Fox 2000 (now Disney) was supposed to be released on October 5, 2019. An optimal time for demanding films that are more aimed at an adult audience. It was then taken off the schedule by the distributor and postponed until 2020.

The reason given for the postponement is that the film is very complex and large parts of the plot only take place in the imagination of Amy Adams' depressed character. Early test screenings showed that the audience was very confused about what was real and what wasn't. Director Joe Wright (The Darkest Hour) will now revise the film to create more clarity. For this, five days of re-shoots are scheduled.

While when a film gets rescheduled or re-shoots are taking place, you often get the impression that the makers don't know what they're doing, you're dealing with a complicated story and an experienced director, who obviously tries to present an optimal film version. If Amy Adams hadn't had a commitment for another film, the date in October 2019 could have been kept without any problems.
