The story centers on a woman who is a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine, watching old movies, recalling happier times, and spying on her neighbours, including witnessing a crime involving a new neighbouring family.

Joe Wright, who has previously helmed The Darkest Hour, is directing with Tracy Letts (best known for writing August: Osage County) adapting the screenplay. Gary Oldman, Wyatt Russell, and Brian Tyree Henry are also on board to star in the project, reports Variety.

Mackie is best known for his roles in The Hurt Locker and as Falcon (aka Sam Wilson) in the Captain America as well as Avengers films. He will wrap the Netflix remake of the French thriller Point Blank before shooting The Woman in the Window. He has also replaced Joel Kinnaman in the second season of Netflix's science fiction drama series Altered Carbon. Mackie will also star opposite Gina Rodriguez in Miss Bala.

The Woman in the Window is scheduled for a 2019 release.
