'The Woman in the Window', headlined by Amy Adams, was one of many movies delayed in the current pandemic.
Some of the movies have since gone to on demand. Such is the fate now, it would seem, of 'The Woman in the Window' too.
According to THR, Netflix is close to solidifying a deal for the worldwide rights to the thriller.
The streaming giant also recently secured the rights to 'The Spongebob Movie: Sponge on the Run'.
The movie belongs to the Disney-owned 20th Century stable and was acquired by the House of Mouse after the Disney-Fox merger.
According to reports, 'Woman in the Window' had some reshoots after disappointing early test screenings.
Having been in limbo since, perhaps going to on demand was the best possible outcome for the flick. With adult themes included, it was hardly going to get a release on Disney+.
'The Woman in the Window' stars multi Oscar nominee Adams as an agoraphobic child psychologist who lives alone in a New York suburb. She often observes her neighbours and one day witnesses a violent act in the family home next door. Matters take a darker turn yet when she calls the cops.
Joe Wright ('Atonement', 'Anna Karenina') directs. Gary Oldman, Anthony Mackie, Fred Hechinger, Wyatt Russell, Brian Tyree Henry, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Julianne Moore co-star.
