“The Help” director Tate Taylor will adapt Paula Hawkins’ book “The Girl on the Train” for DreamWorks.
The book follows Rachel, who is going through a divorce, spends her daily commute fantasizing about the seemingly perfect couple who live in a house that her train passes every day, until one morning she sees something shocking happen there. She gets entangled in the mystery that unfolds, reported Deadline.
“Bringing rich material to the screen in the filmmaker friendly environment DreamWorks provides is a director’s dream. I’m honored to be a part of this,” Taylor said.
“With The Help, Tate deftly adapted a beloved novel into a compelling film that stayed true to its origin while pleasing fans and moviegoers alike,” Holly Bario, president of production at DreamWorks, said in a statement.
“We are excited to have Tate back at DreamWorks and thrilled that he’s joining us on this journey as we bring another bestseller to theaters.”
