Amy Adams will star in the highly anticipated movie adaption of The Woman in the Window by A. J. Finn.

The book follows Dr. Anna Fox, a woman living alone with crippling agoraphobia after a traumatic accident. From the comfort of her lavish New York City apartment, Anna spends her days watching the neighborhood from her window. But when she witnesses a terrible crime in a neighbor’s home, she finds herself unable to distinguish between what is real and what is just paranoia.

The bestselling thriller debuted as No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list (to buy: $16;, and remains the biggest-selling adult fiction title this year, according to Variety.

The author made the announcement yesterday on Instagram, where he shared a photo of Amy along with the book.

In the caption, A. J. Finn wrote, “Very happy and proud to announce that five-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams — star of Arrival, American Hustle, Enchanted, Nocturnal Animals, DC’s Superman movies, and many others — will be playing Dr. Anna Fox in the film adaptation of #thewomaninthewindow. I’m over the moon.”

This is the second big thriller adaption in the pipeline for Adams, who is also starring in the HBO limited series adaption of Sharp Objects by Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn.
