Director Tate Taylor‘s latest, “The Girl on the Train,” is shaping up to be one of fall’s most anticipated thrillers.
The film, which is based off of British author Paula Hawkins’ novel of the same name, is darker fare for Taylor, who previously directed “The Help” and “Get On Up.”
The book’s synopsis is the following:
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.
And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel goes to the police. But is she really as unreliable as they say? Soon she is deeply entangled not only in the investigation but in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?
In the film, Emily Blunt stars as Rachel, Justin Theroux stars as her ex-husband Tom, Rebecca Ferguson stars as his new wife, Anna, and Luke Evans and Haley Bennett star as the seemingly perfect couple, Megan and Scott Hipwell. Allison Janney and Laura Prepon also star. Erin Cressida Wilson adapted the screenplay.

“The Girl on the Train” opens Oct. 7.
