The Girl on the Train will pull into the station next fall.

Disney and DreamWorks have announced that the big-screen adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ bestselling psychological thriller is set to open Oct. 7, 2016.

Directed by Tate Taylor (The Help) from a script by Erin Cressida Wilson (Secretary), the film is to star Emily Blunt as a lonely divorcée who gets entangled in a mystery involving a seemingly perfect couple whose house she passes on her daily commute. Rebecca Ferguson, Haley Bennett, and Edgar Ramirez are also on board.

Published in January, Hawkins’ book became an instant hit and has sold more than 3 million copies in the United States alone. EW gave it an A-minus.

The Girl on the Train shares its release date with The Accountant, Gambit, and Monster High.
