Amy Adams' psychological thriller The Woman in the Window is potentially heading to Netflix.

The adaptation, based on AJ Finn's 2018 novel, centres on Dr Anna Fox (played by the multi-Oscar-nominee Adams), an agoraphobic psychologist who witnesses a crime while spying on her new neighbours.

The Woman in the Window's journey to the screen has been a frustratingly staggered one, after negative test screenings initially delayed its release until May 2020, which was then followed by a further pushback thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.

But, according to Variety, streaming behemoth Netflix has now entered early negotiations to buy the title off Disney, which acquired the movie after it was one of the final productions to come out of Fox 2000 prior to the Disney takeover last year.

The move would mean that The Woman in the Window skips cinemas altogether, and will instead be released directly on the streaming service.

Directed by The Darkest Hour's Joe Wright, The Woman in the Window will see Wright reunited with Gary Oldman, who stars as family patriarch Alistair Russell.
