'The Girl on the Train' Getting Bollywood Remake
"The Girl on the Train" is heading to Bollywood.
The 2016 psychological thriller, based on Paula Hawkins' bestselling novel, is getting a Hindi-language remake.
Parineeti Chopra will take on the role played by Emily Blunt in the original. Chopra broke out in 2011's romantic comedy "Ladies vs Ricky Bahl" and recently starred in the blockbuster "Golmaal Again."
The untitled remake will be directed by Ribhu Dasgupta, who is currently helming the upcoming Netflix series "Bard of Blood."
The story follows alcoholic divorcée Rachel who becomes obsessed with her former husband, his current wife, and their seemingly perfect neighbors. Then, she sees something shocking happen in the neighbors' backyard, and when the wife goes missing, Rachel begins her own investigation into the disappearance.
The film will be entirely shot in London and is slated to begin production in July.
"The Girl on the Train" is the latest Hollywood hit to get a Bollywood remake. Also in the works are Hindi-language versions of "The Fault in Our Stars," "Begin Again," and "Forrest Gump."
