Emily Blunt in Talks to Star in ‘The Girl on the Train’ for DreamWorks

Emily Blunt is in talks to star in DreamWorks’ adaptation of Paula Hawkins‘ runaway best-seller The Girl on the Train.

The London-set film, which will be directed by Tate Taylor, offers three meaty roles for actresses. Blunt, who is British, would play the story’s primary narrator, a jobless alcoholic who, devastated by her recent divorce, spends her daily train ride fantasizing about the seemingly perfect couple who live in a house that she passes. But after coming home one night covered in blood and unable to remember much from a black-out drinking episode, she begins to realize that she may have witnessed or been involved in a crime.

Marc Platt is producing the film, which will be executive produced by Jared LeBoff.

DreamWorks acquired the rights to the fiercely contested novel in 2014, prior to the book’s publication. The Girl on the Train went on to top the New York Times best-seller list for a dozen weeks. Two million copies of the book have been sold, according to DreamWorks.

Erin Cressida Wilson (Secretary, Chloe) is adapting the screenplay.

The book has drawn comparisons to Gone Girl, given that it is a thriller told from the perspective of an unreliable narrator.

Blunt received rave reviews in Cannes for her star turn in Denis Villeneuve‘s Sicario, which will be released by Lionsgate on Sept. 18. She also nabbed a supporting actress Golden Globe earlier this year for the Rob Marshall musical Into the Woods.

She is repped by CAA, The Artists Partnership in the U.K. and attorney David Weber.

Emily Blunt Drama ‘Sicario’ Set for September Release

Lionsgate has set drug trafficking drama “Sicario,” starring Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin and Jon Bernthal, for a Sept. 18 limited release followed by a wide release on Sept. 25.

The story, set in the lawless border area between the U.S. and Mexico, centers on an idealistic FBI agent (portrayed by Blunt) being exposed to the brutal world of international drug trafficking by members of a government task force — played by Brolin and Del Toro — who have enlisted her in their plan to take out a Mexican cartel boss.

“Sicario” is the fourth wide release title set for Sept. 25 after Sony’s “Hotel Transylvania 2,” Relativity’s horror thriller “The Disappointments Room” and Warner Bros.  comedy “The Intern.”
