Emily Blunt received a nomination for her performance at the 23rd Screen Actors Guild Awards, as well as a nomination for BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role, in the film. The author-backed role in the official Hindi remake will star Parineeti Chopra, who steps into the shoes of an alcoholic divorcée, who becomes involved in a missing person’s investigation.

The psychological thriller will be produced by Reliance Entertainment, who have procured the rights of the book and the film and will be adapting it from an Indian storytelling perspective.

We have procured the rights of the book and the film and will be adapting it from an Indian storytelling perspective. Amblin will be a partner in this film.”

“We are always pleased to work with our long-time partners at Reliance Entertainment to bring the best stories to audiences around the world. This Hindi-language adaptation of The Girl On The Train is a first for Amblin and a testament to Paula Hawkins’ incredible book and our 2016 film,” says Amblin Partners President and Co-CEO Jeff Small.

The still to be titled, the taut thriller will be directed by Ribhu Dasgupta, who will adapt the book keeping in mind the sensibilities and grit of the characters from the source.
