"It's a really unusual story, it doesn't follow the formula..." hmv.com talks the cast and director of The Girl on the Train

British author Paula Hawkins produced one of the best-selling books of 2015 with The Girl on the Train, a thriller about an alcoholic divorcee struggling with her post-marriage life and battling with the blackouts in her memory brought on by her drinking.

Now the story is coming to the big screen, adapted by screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson and directed by Tate Taylor, the man behind The Help and James Brown biopic Get On Up. Emily Blunt stars as Rachel, the aforementioned alcoholic whose life is going nowhere and who fantasises about a couple she imagines to be the embodiment of true love - and who also happen to live a few doors down from her ex-husband and his new wife. But when she witnesses what she believes is proof that this perfect woman is cheating on her husband, she drunkenly decides to investigate before being pulled into a mystery involving the woman's disappearance and finds herself under suspicion by the police.

The film's cast also includes Luke Evans, Haley Bennett, Justin Theroux and Rebecca Ferguson, and with the film arriving in UK cinemas on Wednesday (October 5th), we sat down with Luke, Haley and director Tate Taylor to talk about the film.
