Actor Amy Adams-starrer 'Woman in the Window' is set to be delayed after screening for a test audience left them confused.
The film, which was greenlit by Fox 2000, now owned by Disney, will be undergoing five days of reshoots, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Based on AJ Finn's book of the same name, "The Woman in the Window" is the story of a child psychologist with agoraphobia (Adams). She witnesses a shocking crime involving her new neighbours, but no one believes her.
The thriller has been directed by Joe Wright and also features Julianne Moore, Gary Oldman, Wyatt Russell, and Brian Tyree Henry. Disney has pulled the project from its October release calendar and moved to a mystery date in 2020.
"We're dealing with a complex novel. 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" says Fox 2000 president Elizabeth Gabler.
Gabler will soon be departing the studio after the film's release. She is currently serving as a consultant on the movie. The production on the film has faced troubles since the start. Previously, Finn, a pseudonym for novelist Dan Mallory, was called out in a New Yorker story in February that alleged he had spent years crafting untruths about his personal life and history while rising up the ranks in the publishing world.
The motion picture was slated to be released October 4, which in the industry is considered a strong date for award season hopefuls with significant commercial potential. The studio Fox 2000, which is shuttering amid the purchase, had previously had success with adaptations including 2016's Hidden Figures and 2006's The Devil Wears Prada. Aside from The Woman in the Window, Fox 2000 has The Art of Racing in the Rain, starring Kevin Costner, Amanda Seyfried, Milo Ventimiglia, due out next month.
