Netflix has opened negotiations to buy Amy Adams’ thriller The Woman in the Window from Disney.

The variety has reported that Disney had originally scheduled the release of the flick for Oct. 4, 2019, which was then pushed back to May this year, before pulling it off the release schedules amind the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Disney had acquired the movie as part of buying the 20th Century Fox film studio in March 2019.

This is part of growing trend as social distancing norms have meant cinemas cannot swing back into business like before.

For instance Bollywood flick Gulabo Sitabo starring Indian legend Amitabh Bachchan, was supposed to draw millions to cinema halls this spring.

Instead, the crowd-pleasing Hindi satire debuted on’s Prime streaming service as the coronavirus kept Indians home.

Other Indian blockbusters have followed, pouring into online platforms like Netflix and Walt Disney’s Disney+ Hotstar.
