Amy Adams’s upcoming movie The Woman in the Window has been pushed back to 2020 so it can be reworked after test screenings flagged problems.

The thriller, starring Adams as an agoraphobic child psychologist who witnesses a crime, was set to hit cinemas on 4 October, but it has now been switched to an unknown date in 2020 so it can undergo reshoots.

According to editors at The Hollywood Reporter, Disney executives, who obtained the feature when they acquired the Fox film empire in March, have opted to remove it from their 2019 slate so they can rework the picture after early test screenings showed that the narrative confused audiences.

“We’re dealing with a complex novel,” said Fox 2000 president Elizabeth Gabler, who is departing the studio imminently but will remain as a consultant on the film for Disney until its release. “We tested the movie really early for that very reason. We wanted to make it better, and we’ve had Disney’s full support in doing that.”

Director Joe Wright, known for films such as Darkest Hour and Atonement, is reportedly planning to do five days of reshoots in August, once Adams wraps filming on Ron Howard’s Netflix movie Hillbilly Elegy.

The Woman in the Window, based on the best-selling 2018 novel by A.J. Finn, also stars Julianne Moore, Gary Oldman, Anthony Mackie and Brian Tyree Henry, and was adapted for the screen by playwright Tracy Letts.

The mystery will be the last film released by Fox 2000 before Disney shutters the division, and there will now be a significant gap between it and Fox 2000’s penultimate film, The Art of Racing in the Rain, which is due for release in August.

Robert Pattinson and Mia Wasikowska are set to re-team on a film adaptation of hit novel The Devil All the Time.

The pair previously worked together on David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars in 2014 and in recent comedy-drama Damsel.

Now, Robert and Mia are both poised to work with director Antonio Campos on the violent thriller, based on the 2011 novel by Donald Ray Pollock.

Avengers: Infinity War co-stars Tom Holland and Chris Evans, as well as Lady Bird star Tracy Letts, are also joining the project, which is set in rural Ohio and follows the stories of a man who succumbs to sacrifice to save his dying wife, a serial killer couple, a troubled preacher, and a corrupt sheriff, in a story of faith, violence and redemption which spans across two decades.

Holland will play the son of the movie’s protagonist, Willard Russell, while Evans will portray the local sheriff. Neither Pattinson nor Wasikowska’s parts have yet been confirmed.

The movie is being produced by Randall Poster, in addition to Jake Gyllenhaal and Riva Marker under their Nine Stories Productions banner. Filming is set to get underway in February (19), according to Deadline.

Campos – who was responsible for the pilot episode of Jessica Biel’s critically acclaimed crime drama The Sinner – has also signed on to rewrite and direct the Fox Searchlight horror film Splitfoot, and will additionally be directing a prequel to The Omen for 20th Century Fox.

Meanwhile, Pattinson is also starring in High Life, which is French director Claire Denis’ first English-language feature, and The King, alongside Timothee Chalamet, Joel Edgerton and Ben Mendelsohn.

Wasikowska is currently filming Judy and Punch, a story about two Australian puppeteers.

Gary Oldman is joining Amy Adams in mystery drama The Woman in the Window.

The British actor’s involvement in the film will reunite him with Darkest Hour director Joe Wright, the film which earned Gary his first Best Actor Academy Award at the ceremony earlier this year (18). In the adaption of the novel of the same name by A.J. Finn, Amy plays a child psychologist with severe agoraphobia, a disorder characterised by symptoms of anxiety in situations where the person perceives their environment to be unsafe. As a result, she hasn’t left her house in months, but her life takes an unexpected turn when she witnesses a horrible crime involving a new neighbouring family. Gary, 60, will play the father of the mysterious family in question, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

22 Jump Street star Wyatt Russell has also been tapped for the feature, while Julianne Moore is rumoured to be joining the cast as well.

Scott Rudin, who has produced critically acclaimed films including No Country for Old Men, The Grand Budapest Hotel and Lady Bird – and is also a recipient of the coveted EGOT honour – is producing the picture. He will be joined by fellow Lady Bird producer Eli Bush, while writer Tracy Letts – who also played Larry McPherson in Greta Gerwig’s acclaimed movie – is penning the script.

Gary recently played the title character in Federico D’Alessandro’s sci-fi thriller Tau, which is now available on Netflix, and will return to cinema screens later this year alongside Gerard Butler and rapper Common in Hunter Killer, currently scheduled for an October release.

Meanwhile, Amy is currently starring in television series Sharp Objects and will also be reprising her role as Giselle in Enchanted sequel, Disenchanted.
