Based on the best-selling 2018 novel by A.J. Finn, the twisty thriller did not test well with audiences, who found it too confusing.

Disney obtained the movie when it bought Fox and now the studio has chose to do re-shoots after test screenings revealed that the film confused audiences, according to THR.

"The looming date change comes as the Burbank studio is digesting Fox's slate, troubleshooting on the films it inherited and setting a fall awards strategy", claims The Hollywood Reporter.

The film also stars Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour), Anthony Mackie (Avengers: Endgame), Julianne Moore (Still Alice), Brian Tyree Henry (Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse), and Wyatt Russell (22 Jump Street).

Adams" character Anna Fox in the movie is "an agoraphobic woman living alone in New York" who "begins spying on her new neighbors only to witness a disturbing act of violence, ' according to a studio synopsis.

"We're dealing with a complex novel", Fox 2000 president Elizabeth Gabler said in a statement. "We tested the movie really early for that very reason".

The film from "Atonement" director Joe Wright is now getting "retooled" with additional reshoots.

The mystery will be the last film released by Fox 2000 before Disney shutters the division, and there will now be a significant gap between it and Fox 2000's penultimate film, The Art of Racing in the Rain, which is due for release in August. 'We wanted to make it better, and we've had Disney's full support in doing that'.
