The A-List: The Girl on the Train director Tate Taylor

Tate Taylor had just one small comedy — 2008’s Pretty Ugly People — on his directing resume when that part of his career got turbo-charged thanks to his 2011 Oscar-winner The Help, which he also co-wrote and co-produced. Next he tackled Get On Up, the biopic of James Brown, the Godfather of Soul.  Now, for his fourth feature, Taylor has plunged even deeper into the murky depths of twisted human behavior in the highly anticipated mystery-thriller The Girl on the Train, based on the bestseller by Paula Hawkins, the Universal release explores obsession, revenge, sex, lying, desire, pain and addiction.
