Meet the Leading Ladies of "The Girl on the Train" Movie

Meet the Leading Ladies of "The Girl on the Train" Movie

Paula Hawkins' "The Girl on the Train" is the Regina George of 2015's books: Everywhere you look, people are either obsessing over it, talking about it to anyone who will listen, or hunting for a similar book to fill the void left when it's done.

And now, the 'it girl' of books is about to become the darling of the silver screen — especially with the casting of these three actresses.

Meet the ladies bringing Anna, Rachel, and Megan to life.
