WHY DIDN'T Y'ALL TELL ME TATE TAYLOR WAS THE DIRECTOR?
The guy that brought us the problematic The Help and Get On Up is also behind one of the big screen adaptation of one of the best books I've read this year. *insert all the sad face emojis in the universe here*
But, I am going to remain cautiously optimistic. Maybe this won't have the same misfires that Taylor's other films did. Maybe Taylor's true calling is engrossing thrillers adapted from bestselling novels. I mean, it could happen...I guess.
For those who are unfamiliar, here's the synopsis:
Based on Paula Hawkins' bestselling novel, The Girl on the Train is adapted for the screen by Erin Cressida Wilson. The film's executive producers are Jared LeBoff and Celia Costas, and it will be released by Universal Pictures.
