Gary Oldman Joins Amy Adams in 'The Woman in the Window' (Exclusive)
The move reteams the recent Oscar winner with his 'Darkest Hour' director Joe Wright.
Oscar winner Gary Oldman is reteaming with his Darkest Hour director Joe Wright and joining Amy Adams in The Woman in the Window.
Adams is topping the Fox 2000 drama, an adaptation of the book of the same name by A.J. Finn.
With a nod to the Alfred Hitchcock classic Rear Window, the book centers on a child psychologist with severe agoraphobia (and a penchant for mixing alcohol with her medication) who hasn’t left her house in months. The woman witnesses a horrible crime involving a new neighboring family but no one, including the police, will believe her. And she has doubts herself.
Oldman will play the father of the mysterious family.
Scott Rudin and Eli Bush are producing the pic. Tracy Letts wrote the script for the adaptation.
Oldman is coming off the many awards he swept up for his portrayal of Sir Winston Churchill in last year's World War II drama Darkest Hour. His performance earned a Golden Globe, a BAFTA Award, a SAG Award and, ultimately, a best actor Oscar.
Among his next projects is The Laundromat, a political drama that will also star Meryl Streep.
Oldman is repped by APA, Douglas Management Group and Loeb & Loeb.
