Emily Blunt Is In Talks to Play Rachel in 'The Girl on the Train'!

Emily Blunt is in talks to star in this year’s runaway best selling book “The Girl on the Train.”

The 32-year-old actress would play the role of Rachel, “a jobless alcoholic who, devastated by her recent divorce, spends her daily train ride fantasizing about the seemingly perfect couple who live in a house that she passes,” THR reports. There are two other leading roles available for women in the film as well.

Since being published earlier this year, the book has sold more than 2 million copies. Stay tuned for more casting news!

    I like Emily, but I didn’t really picture her as the main character since in the book she’s described to be a bit on the heavier side due to all that drinking. Ooh if they had her husband John, to play the ex in the book, that’d be interesting!

    Emily is a terrific actress. I think she’d be great playing Rachel. If she needed to put on a few pounds.. I’m sure she’s up to it.
