Final words

The Woman in the Window will be the final film from Fox 2000 before it shutters in the wake of the Disney-Fox merger, and this is just the most recent setback the film has faced.

“We’re dealing with a complex novel,” Fox 2000 president Elizabeth Gabler told THR “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.”

Director Joe Wright is apparently planning five days to shoot pick-up shots aimed at getting the film back on track.

The Woman in the Window is finally scheduled to be digitally released by Netflix on May 14, 2021.
