Haley Bennett Joins Emily Blunt in ‘Girl on the Train’

Haley Bennett is in negotiations to join Emily Blunt and Rebecca Ferguson in DreamWorks’ adaptation of “The Girl on the Train.”

The story is based on Paula Hawkins’ bestselling novel, which centers on one woman (Blunt) devastated by her recent divorce who spends her commute fantasizing about a seemingly perfect couple who live in a house that her train passes every day. Along the way, she becomes entangled in a mystery revolving around the married couple and another woman and spins out of control.

Ferguson plays the married woman, with Bennett landing the role of the other woman Blunt’s character encounters.

Tate Taylor is directing. Marc Platt will produce the film, while Jared LeBoff of Marc Platt Prods. will serve as executive producer. Erin Cressida Wilson will adapt the script.

Bennett was last seen in Sony’s “The Equalizer” opposite Denzel Washington and has re-teamed with Washington on her next film, a remake of “The Magnificent Seven,” which also stars Chris Pratt and Ethan Hawke.

She is repped by CAA and Bloom Hergott. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
