Allison Janney joins The Girl On The Train

Emily Blunt (Edge Of Tomorrow),   Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation), Haley Bennett (The Equalizer), Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) and Justin Theroux (Inland Empire) are already all aboard, but The Girl On The Train is still accepting more passengers. News arrives via Variety that Allison Janney (Juno) is the latest to join the ensemble cast for Tate Taylor's (The Help) adaptation of Paula Hawkins' bestseller. 

Erin Cressida Wilson (Secretary) adapted the script from Paula Hawkins' much talked about book, which drew comparisons to Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl for its narrative. We will caution that even the basic synopsis might be considered a spoiler, but read on if you wish... The story follows a recently divorced woman called Rachel (Emily Blunt) struggling with her life and sinking into alcoholism to try to cope. She spies a seemingly perfect couple from her London train ride every day and starts to fantasise about their lives. But things take a turn when she sees something shocking...

Janney will play a police detective, continuing a working relationship with Taylor that has already taken in the likes of Pretty Ugly People (2008), The Help (2011) and Get On Up (2014). The director should be cranking his cameras soon for DreamWorks Studios, aiming for an 7 October 2016 release in the US.
