Emily Blunt is in talks to star in DreamWorks' adaptation of Paula Hawkins' runaway best-seller The Girl on the Train.The London-set film, which will be directed by Tate Taylor, offers three meaty roles for actresses. Blunt, who is British, would play the story's primary narrator, 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. But after coming home one night covered in blood and unable to remember much from a black-out drinking episode, she begins to realize that she may have witnessed or been involved in a crime.DreamWorks acquired the rights to the fiercely contested novel in 2014, prior to the book's publication. The Girl on the Train went on to top the New York Times best-seller list for a dozen weeks. Two million copies of the book have been sold, according to DreamWorks.
