25 August 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Haley Bennett (The Equalizer) has landed a lead role in the upcoming film adaptation of The Girl On The Train.

Paula Hawkins wrote the best-selling novel of which the film is based, with Emily Blunt (Sicario) and Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) already cast in the other lead roles. Blunt plays Rachel, “a recent divorcee who narrates the tale and spends her daily commute fantasizing about the seemingly perfect couple who live in a house that her train passes every day. One morning, she sees something shocking happen there and becomes entangled in the mystery that unfolds, involving the other two women.”

Haley Bennett Rounds Out Lead Trio Of Women In 'The Girl On The Train'

25 August 2015 9:41 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Emily Blunt is Rachel, "Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation" breakout Rebecca Ferguson nabbed the role of Anne, and now Tate Taylor's ("The Help," "Get On Up") adaptation of the best-selling thriller "The Girl On The Train", has found its Megan. Deadline reports that rising star Haley Bennett ("The Equalizer," plus upcoming films from Terrence Malick and Warren Beatty) has joined the movie about a young woman whose observances on her daily commute take a sudden and deadly turn when she sees something not quite right. Here's the book synopsis:  Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. »

Palme d’Or Winner Léa Seydoux in Talks to Star in Gambit

25 August 2015 6:52 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

After co-winning the Palme d’Or for her turn in the sultry French drama Blue Is the Warmest Color, Léa Seydoux doesn't seem to be having trouble landing roles in franchise blockbusters. The newest Bond Girl has now been offered the part of Bella Donna Boudreaux in the Channing Tatum–starring Gambit, according to Deadline. The role was highly sought-after, with Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation), and Seydoux on the short list; Ferguson dropped out to take a role in Tate Taylor’s The Girl on the Train, and the role went to Seydoux. Bella Donna, who also goes by Belladonna, Belle, and Bel, first appeared in X-Men in 1992. A childhood friend of Gambit and a deft assassin, she has similar energy-generating powers (though she doesn't throw playing cards at people). She eventually married the Cajun card-thrower before hiring someone to murder him. »

25 August 2015 6:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Director Tate Taylor (The Help) has secured his three leading ladies for the upcoming adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ best-seller The Girl On The Train, after Deadline broke that The Equalizer‘s Haley Bennett has joined the project to play the titular part.

Bennett joins Emily Blunt and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation‘s Rebecca Ferguson for the much-touted novel-to-screen translation, which has since drawn comparisons to Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl and its thriller tenets.

Jess and Jason, as she refers to them, are a perfectly happy married couple living a life that she so longs for, but one morning when her train passes by their house she witnesses something bizarre – deadly, »

The Girl On The Train Adaptation Recruits Rogue Nation’s Rebecca Ferguson

19 August 2015 8:02 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After narrowly missing out on a part in X-Men spinoff Gambit, Deadline has learned that Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation star Rebecca Ferguson has signed on to star opposite Emily Blunt in The Girl on the Train.

Based on Paula Hawkins’ novel of the same name, Ferguson is on board to play Anna, one of the three nominal female roles in the thriller.

In an attempt to liven up her humdrum commute to and from work, Blunt’s protagonist begins narrating a mock livelihood for a couple that live on a house adjacent to the train tracks. Blunt’s day-dreamer finds solace in her innocent game of make-belief until one day she witnesses something shocking occur in the house, and it isn’t »

Rebecca Ferguson Out Of The Running For Gambit Role

19 August 2015 6:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Rebecca Ferguson was one of the highlights of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, so when it was announced that her, Lea Seydoux and Abbey Lee were on the shortlist to play the female lead in Fox’s X-Men spinoff, Gambit, many fans hoped to see the Swedish actress land the role. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen, as Ferguson has taken herself out of the running to star in another movie.

According to Deadline, she’ll join Emily Blunt in the Tate Taylor-directed adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ novel The Girl On The Train, playing a character named Anna. So, unless we hear of anyone else emerging as a contender, we can assume that it’ll be either Lea Seydoux (Spectre, Blue is the Warmest Color), or Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road) that will end up playing the daughter of the leader of the New Orleans Assassins’ Guild, Bella Donna Boudreaux. »
