Lisa Kudrow set for The Girl On The Train

The ensemble for Tate Taylor's (The Help) new thriller keeps getting bigger and more interesting. News arrives via The Hollywood Reporter that Lisa Kudrow (Easy A) is the latest addition to The Girl On The Train.

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...

Kudrow is set to play a character called Monica (surely a future Friends related trivia question), and joins a cast that already includes Emily Blunt (Edge Of Tomorrow), Allison Janney (Juno), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation), Haley Bennett (The Equalizer), Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club), Édgar Ramirez (The Bourne Ultimatum) and Justin Theroux (Inland Empire).

Kudrow has worked on comedy drama Table 19 and most recently reprised her role as Dean Carol Gladstone for Neighbors (2014) follow-up, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, which arrives here on 6 May next year.
