NEWS: Netflix is in Talks to Buy Film Adaptation of ‘The Woman in the Window’ from Disney

Due to the global health crisis, a variety of movies have had their theatrical release dates delayed as movie theaters have remained close across the country.

One of these movies was Fox 2000’s The Woman in the Window, a film adaptation of the popular novel starring Amy Adams. Because the film was originally intended to be released this spring, the movie’s release has been delayed, leading to streaming services vying for the possibility of bringing the movie to their platforms.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix is “closing in on a deal to buy the worldwide rights” to The Woman in the Window. The film was produced by Fox 2000, which is under the 20th Century Studios umbrella that is owned by Disney. If the deal goes through, the film will likely bypass a typical theatrical release and instead head straight to streaming or premium video-on-demand.

The move would be an interesting one, and perhaps a look at what is to come for other films if theatrical releases continue to be delayed. We have already seen movies intended for theatrical release, such as Artemis Fowl, instead making their debut on a streaming service.

  1. That book was amazing!!! I’d heard they had to rethink some of the film after filming because it wasn’t getting good feedback. Read the book if you haven’t already!! It was a page turner.
