When director Tate Taylor showed his adaptation of The Girl on the Train to a test audience, he started to realize that the film’s ending — when Rachel (Emily Blunt) kills her cheating ex-husband Tom (Justin Theroux) after he threatens her when she discovers he’s been gaslighting her and was having an affair with and killed his nanny Megan Hipwell (Haley Bennett) — was hitting a nerve with viewers.

One woman raised her hand and was asked if she liked the movie and she answered: “because that asshole Tom, that motherf—er, got what he deserved. My husband just cheated on me, and everybody thought I was crazy, and I wish I could’ve screwed —” quoted by the Guardian
“And she wasn’t even being funny, And I went, ‘OK, this is definitely a theme.” added the director Taylor quoted by the Guardian.

While the thriller would seem to be a departure for the director of movies like The Help and Get On Up, Taylor tells The Hollywood Reporter that he relished the opportunity to shock the audience and do a deep dive into the novel’s richly portrayed characters.

And one of the ways in which the film, based on Paula Hawkins’ best-selling novel, keeps the audience guessing involves Rachel’s reliability and figuring out the truth about what happened to her, specifically, during her walk into the tunnel. That also created a challenge for Taylor of visually representing various tunnel possibilities and a scene that would lead Rachel to the truth about what happened to her.
The Hollywood Reporter spoke to Taylor about dealing with this and other production predicaments as well as what he sees for his characters’ future and how the director of the twist-filled movie avoids spoilers.
