Acclaimed director Tate Taylor is set to next take on Dreamwork’s THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN. An adaptation of the bestselling novel by Paula Hawkins, the thriller follows a recent divorcee who spends her daily train-ride fantasizing about the perfect couple who live in a house that she passes each day, that is until she witnesses a shocking offense, tangling her in the mystery that follows.
Men, Women & Children writer Erin Cressida Wilson will script the adaptation, with Marc Platt producing and Marc Platt Productions’ Jared LeBoff executive producing.
Taylor scripted and directed the Oscar-nominated drama The Help, which was nominated for four awards, with Octavia Spencer taking home Best Supporting Actress. He most recently helmed the James Brown biopic Get On Up, which starred Chadwick A Boseman, Nelsan Ellis, and Dan Aykroyd.
Up next, the emerging director have several projects on his slate, including the Sandra Bullock-starring adaptation Tupperware Unleashed, Warner Bros.’ thriller adaptation Peace Like A River, and the Stephen King mystery adaptation Joyland.
