If you’re into thrillers like Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train (or apparently any film or book with the word “girl” in it) then you’re in luck, as there is a film in that vein in the works from The Darkest Hour and Atonement director Joe Wright called The Woman in the Window.

According to a new report from THR, actress Julianne Moore is in talks to join the film, which is an adaptation of the novel of the same name from A.J. Finn. Moore will be playing the role of the mom of a boy who moves in across the street from the titular “woman in the window.”

As we reported previously, on board to lead the flick is Sharp Objects star Amy Adams and set to adapt the film is August: Osage County scribe Tracy Letts.

Below is the synopsis for the novel on which the movie is based:

Anna Fox lives alone—a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times . . . and spying on her neighbors.

Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, a mother, their teenage son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn’t, her world begins to crumble—and its shocking secrets are laid bare.

What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this diabolically gripping thriller, no one—and nothing—is what it seems.
