Parineeti Chopra will be shooting the official remake of the acclaimed Hollywood hit ‘The Girl on the Train’ (2016) for two months in England, starting July this year. Chopra will reprise the hugely acclaimed role of the protagonist essayed by top Hollywood actress Emily Blunt in the original.
Chopra will be allegedly shooting the film in real locations and inside actual trains in England. Not only this, the star will also take multiple train rides across the United Kingdom in these two months, with real people in company. The makers plan to capture the authenticity and make the film look more real and also stay true to its setting, as trains play an important role in the plot, reports Spotboye.
A source from the line production team says, “This film is a thriller that unfolds with Pari’s character witnessing things during her repeated journeys on the train. So, Pari will definitely be needed to travel in trains. The train is like a very important character in the film and it’s important that we capture the scenes perfectly. What Pari goes through on the train is extremely important to the scenes in the film and its narrative. So, we had to shoot on real trains to ensure we stay true to the setting.”
Based on the 2015 bestseller by Paula Hawkins, the film narrates the story of a divorcee woman who gets entangled in a shocking investigation of missing people that throws her life to the brink.
