Why has The Woman in the Window taken so long to come out?

The Woman in the Window was originally created to be released at cinemas.

In fact, produced by 20th Century Studios and Fox 2000 Pictures, it was originally set to be released in October 2019.

But it was put on hold for further editing – following test screening feedback.

Then the pandemic hit – throwing the entire movie industry into near chaos.

Its movie release was subsequently cancelled. Only to be finally sold to Netflix for a digital release.

What’s more there was also some controversy around the author’s claims.

An article in The New Yorker claimed Daniel Mallory made various fabrications about his life and family.

The article also draws parallels between the 1995 film Copycat and Daniel’s novel.

Daniel made a formal statement correcting some of his past claims, and blamed any discrepancies on being diagnosed with bipolar II disorder.
