Book to Movie News: Gone Girl

GoneGirlMovieI know almost all of you have read or listened to Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl (click the link for my review). It was the physiological thriller of the year when it was first published. It's thus no surprise that the novel has been adapted for the silver screen; the plot is perfect movie fodder.

In case you're concerned about how closely the movie will follow the book, here's a clue: the screenplay was written by Flynn herself, so you know the essence of the characters and the story have been preserved. The film (from Twentieth Century Fox) is directed by David Fincher (House of Cards, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and stars Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, and Neil Patrick Harris.

For those who you don't know the story, here's the studio's description:

The couple at the center of the story—former New York writer Nick Dunne and his formerly “cool girl” wife Amy, now trying to make ends meet in the mid-recession Midwest—have all the sinuous outer contours of contemporary marital bliss. But on the occasion of their 5th wedding anniversary, Amy goes missing—and those contours crack into a maze of fissures. Nick becomes the prime suspect, shrouded in a fog of suspicious behavior. Amy becomes the vaunted object of a media frenzy as the search for her, dead or alive, plays out before the eyes of a world thirsting for revelations.
From the trailer, it looks like the match of characters to actors is perfect. I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see the movie when it comes out on October 3.
