When and where did the production of The Woman in the Window take place?
Some reshoots did take place as director Joe Wright explained to IndieWire in January 2021:
There were some plot points that people found a bit confusing I would say possibly too opaque maybe. So we had to go back and clarify certain points, but I think also we tried to make sure we didn’t oversimplify anything and make things too clear. There’s an enjoyment in not knowing what’s going on, but at the same time, you have to give the audience something to hold on to you have to lead them through the labyrinth of mystery and fear.
The first test screenings left some audiences confused, which was why reshoots were required.
What is the runtime of The Woman in the Window?
It has been confirmed that the movie will have a runtime of 100 minutes.
