DreamWorks Acquires Paula Hawkins’ Novel ‘The Girl on the Train’

DreamWorks Studios has pre-emptively acquired the rights to the Paula Hawkins novel The Girl on the Train for Marc Platt, who is currently working on the Wicked movie, to produce.

21840310Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and every evening. Every day she passes the same Victorian terraces, stops at the same signal, and sees the same couple, breakfasting on their roof terrace. Jason and Jess seem so happy together.
Then one day Rachel sees something she shouldn’t have seen, and soon after, Jess disappears. Suddenly Rachel is chasing the truth and unable to trust anyone. Not even herself.

The Girl on the Train is already getting rave reviews and is set to be the next Gone Girl thriller and if it’s been optioned for a movie before its even been released it just has to be good!

    Have just finished reading The Girl on the Train this morning and loved it. As was predicted I was also a fan of Gone Girl and although the fact that Girl was in the title as it is in a number of books on the shelves at the moment, it was the idea of the story from the back cover that drew me in. I am so pleased for Paula Hawkins that the book is becoming a huge success and excited that it is to be made into a film, BUT, please, please tell me that the film will be made in the UK and not turned into a USA version. PLEASE
