Julianne Moore is officially in talks to join Amy Adams in Joe Wright’s next feature, a film called The Woman In The Window. The movie will be based upon the A.J. Finn’s best-selling 2018 novel of the same name. The Hollywood Reporter first posted news of Moore’s potential casting.
The story revolves around an alcoholic recluse and child psychologist with severe agoraphobia. The woman witnesses a shocking event in a house across the street that changes her life for good.
Here’s the full synopsis from the source material.
What did she see?
It’s been ten long months since Anna Fox last left her home. Ten months during which she has haunted the rooms of her old New York house like a ghost, lost in her memories, too terrified to step outside.
Anna’s lifeline to the real world is her window, where she sits day after day, watching her neighbours. When the Russells move in, Anna is instantly drawn to them. A picture-perfect family of three, they are an echo of the life that was once hers.
But one evening, a frenzied scream rips across the silence, and Anna witnesses something no one was supposed to see. Now she must do everything she can to uncover the truth about what really happened. But even if she does, will anyone believe her? And can she even trust herself?
Moore will play the matriarch of the Russell family, so says the trade.
Tracy Letts adapted the novel for the screen, while Darkest Hour and Pan helmer Joe Wright will direct.
