Behind The Scenes of ‘The Girl On The Train’ film

Emily Blunt stars in what will be a blockbuster film of ‘Gone Girl’ proportions, ‘The Girl On The Train.’ The film is based on the best selling Thriller of the same name however producers made one big change to the film- the setting of the story has changed from London to NY. Although there is this big change author Paula Hawkins decided that Blunt should keep her British accent as a  “a fun wink and nod to the novel.”

Screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson did her draft based upon her own train ridding experience taking the Metro-North Hudson line from New York to Poughkeepsie. “The train itself is totally unsexy,” she says. “But the river is, and the backyards, and the suburbs – Croton-on-Hudson and Dobbs Ferry, all these places you look at when you’re coming out of the grayness of the city and you think, ‘Oh my God, I could live there.’ There’s a lot of dreams there.”
