20 Book-To-Movie Characters That Were Cast All Wrong
Emily Blunt as Rachel Watson, The Girl on the Train
If you’ve read The Girl on the Train then you know that the main character, Rachel Watson, has a lot going on. She’s divorced, her husband has moved on, and she’s become an alcoholic with obsessive tendencies. She also frequently blacks out, is irresponsible and a blatant stalker. This should’ve been an easy task for seasoned actress Emily Blunt to knock out of the park, but it just didn’t work out. The movie featured a few changes, such as location, which contributed to the film’s poor showing and the character was much less disheveled and extreme on the screen compared to on paper. We needed a level of messy that The Devil Wears Prada actress didn’t deliver, and her co-stars couldn’t help her out.
