Amy Adams to Play Anna Fox in The Woman in the Window #book2movie

We got excited a few weeks back when we first learned The Woman in the Window, the bestselling thriller by A.J. Finn, was being adapted for the screen. We’d barely begun to play the casting game, tossing out a couple of names for the role of Dr. Anna Fox, the agoraphobic child psychologist. Afraid to leave her home, Anna spends her days watching classic films, drinking and spying on the neighbors. 

The logline

An agoraphobic woman living alone in New York begins spying on her new neighbors only to witness a disturbing act of violence.

Now we know Amy Adams will take the lead role and I couldn’t be more thrilled. She’s come a long way since her first foray into the business back in 1999 in Drop Dead Gorgeous. In less than twenty years Adams has ascended from day player to five-time Oscar-nominated power player. Take a look at her career highlights via The Hollywood Reporter.

What I love is that in her mid-thirties, Adams is an actor we’ll be watching for many years to come. This summer, she’ll be on our TV’s in Sharp Objects based on the book by Gillian Flynn and this winter we’ll see her as Lynn Cheney opposite Christian Bale as Dick Cheney in Backseat

Joe Wright is directing The Woman in the Window from a script by Tracy Letts. As I’ve said before, I have my heart set on Timothee Chalamet to play the part of Ethan. Let the casting begin in earnest. Thanks to my long-distance twitter friend @irenehumpreysa for the heads up.
