Director David Fincher is solidifying the cast for his upcoming adaptation Gone Girl, bringing on Tyler Perry, Neil Patrick Harris, Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit and Carrie Coon. We reported in July that Tyler Perry and Neil Patrick Harris were being considered for roles, but now their deals are finalized.
The story centers on a man (Ben Affleck) whose wife (Rosamund Pike) mysteriously disappears on the couple's fifth wedding anniversary. Tyler Perry is playing Tanner Bolt, the attorney for Ben Affleck's character. No details were given for any of the other roles.
David Fincher is directing from a screenplay by Gillian Flynn, who adapted the script from her own novel of the same name. Reese Witherspoon, Bruna Papandrea and Leslie Dixon are producing for 20th Century Fox and New Regency. Production is scheduled to begin this fall.
Rosamund Pike has been offered a starring role opposite Ben Affleck in director David Fincher's adaptation Gone Girl. Actors Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry are being eyed for supporting roles, but it isn't known if offers have been made yet.
Author Gillian Flynn wrote the screenplay adaptation based on her own novel, which centers on a man (Ben Affleck) who becomes the primary suspect in the mysterious disappearance of his wife (Rosamund Pike) on the couple's fifth wedding anniversary. A majority of the story will be told through flashbacks. It isn't known what roles Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry may have, if their deals come together.
Reese Witherspoon, who optioned the book back last July, is producing alongside Bruna Papandrea and Leslie Dixon. 20th Century Fox and New Regency are co-producing and co-financing the adaptation, which is expected to begin production in September.
David Fincher might have found Amy Dunne.
Sources tell Variety that Rosamund Pike has been offered the coveted role opposite Ben Affleck in Fincher’s big screen adaptation of “Gone Girl” for Fox and New Regency. We’re told nothing is official yet.
Since landing Affleck, pre-production has amped up and Fox, Fincher and New Regency have worked fast to find his co-star. While sources told Variety that Olivia Wilde, Abbie Cornish and Julianne Hough had all submitted tapes to test for the part, insiders also confirmed that reports of Pike having an early edge were also true saying Fincher had met with the actress before he left to scout locations.
Fincher returned this week and was expected to meet with some of the girls but it seems Pike left an impression with both the studio and director.

Sources tell Variety that Abbie Cornish, Olivia Wilde and Julianne Hough have submitted audition tapes and will meet with Fincher in the coming weeks. Rosamund Pike has not tested yet but sources say the studio and Fincher are also interested in her as well.
Though a story in the Hollywood Reporter said Pike was the front-runner, sources say while Fincher likes her, he is currently scouting for the film and will not make any decision until he has begun meeting actresses.
After Affleck became involved with the project last week, reports surfaced that Emily Blunt, Natalie Portman and Charlize Theron were being eyed. Sources close to Theron say she has no interest in pursuing the role »

Ben Affleck is circling the male lead in the upcoming 20th Century Fox and New Regency thriller Gone Girl. It isn't known if negotiations are under way yet, but if a deal is finalized, the multi-hyphenate will shoot this before moving on to starring in and directing Live by Night for Warner Bros.
Based on the best-selling novel by Gillian Flynn, the story centers around a woman who goes missing on her fifth wedding anniversary, with the husband (Ben Affleck) emerging as the primary suspect in her mysterious disappearance. The wife has not been cast at this time.
David Fincher is directing from an adapted screenplay that Gillian Flynn wrote herself. We first reported on the project almost exactly one year ago today, when Reese Witherspoon came aboard to produce with her Pacific Standard partner Bruna Papandrea. Leslie Dixon is also attached to produce, although no production schedule has been given. »
Gone Girl, anyone out there familiar with this title? Yep, we already had a little chat about this project, so I’m sure you remember that David Fincher is on board to direct the whole thing (read: an adaptation of Gillian Flynn‘s best-seller of the same name) for 20th Century Fox. But what definitely sounds promising is that all of the sudden Ben Affleck is in some serious talks to play the male lead! So, at this moment we know that Fincher will direct the movie from a script written by Gillian Flynn, while Reese Witherspoon and Leslie Dixon are attached to produce the project. If...

Affleck is the choice of director David Fincher to star in Fincher’s next film “Gone Girl” at Fox. No offer has been delivered yet but Affleck is also very interested in starring and it would be his next film if the talks move forward. He’s in currently in pre-production on his next directorial gig “Live By Night.”
The big hurdle that has to be cleared first is figuring out when he would move back “Live By Night” in the production schedule since Warners wants the film to get off the ground in a timely way given the success of “Argo.” Sources say the two sides are trying to get production up and running for “Gone Girl” in the fall so Affleck could jump into directing “Live By Night” in January.

Exclusive: Ben Affleck is in negotiations to play the lead role in David Fincher‘s Gone Girl, a development that will seal the Fox project pic as Fincher’s next film to direct. In the pic, based on the Gillian Flynn bestseller, Affleck will play a husband whose wife disappears on the day of their fifth anniversary, and all roads point to him as the killer. Fox made a 7-figure deal for the novel last July for Pacific Standard’s Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea, along with Leslie Dixon, to produce. Flynn wrote the first draft of the screenplay. There is no female lead yet as it looks like Witherspoon is only producing. Fox recently brought on New Regency as a financing partner. Affleck’s casting is interesting because it means Warner Bros is allowing him to push back his next directing and starring project, the adaptation of the Dennis Lahane novel Live By Night, »
