Has David Fincher Found His GONE GIRL?
David Fincher is plowing ahead with his adaptation of Gillian Flynn's 2012 bestseller GONE GIRL. We learned last week he's got his leading man in Ben Affleck. Finding a leading lady, however, has proven a bit of a challenge. Reese Witherspoon is producing the film, but has no interest in playing the wife who mysteriously disappears. Natalie Portman, Charlize Theron and Emily Blunt have also allegedly passed.
I don't know how you pass on a Fincher film starring Affleck, but, according to The Hollywood Reporter, this flurry of rejection might be Rosamund Pike's gain - to which I say "Huzzah!" Pike, who'll next be seen in Edgar Wright's THE WORLD'S END, is a fantastic actress who's done some terrific work in lesser seen films over the years (especially the underrated BARNEY'S VERSION, which came and went in a flash at the end of 2010). Whether she's perfect casting for the character in Flynn's novel is a question I'll leave to the fans of the book.
Flynn is adapting her own novel. GONE GIRL is expected to begin production this fall.
