Author Gillian Flynn Downplays Changes In David Fincher’s Gone Girl

22 April 2014 2:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Certainly one of the fall’s most feverishly anticipated movies is David Fincher’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s bestselling mystery novel, Gone Girl. The film, which stars Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry and Emily Ratajkowski, is due to open in October, but more news related to it seems to emerge weekly.

For fans, the most worrying update about Gone Girl came in January, when Flynn, who also wrote the screenplay, hinted that the film would take some liberties with its source material. She told Entertainment Weekly that, “Ben [Affleck] was so shocked by [the screenplay's ending]. He would say, ‘This is a whole new third act! She literally threw that third act out and started from scratch.’”

However, the author recently cleared things up during a Reddit Ama (Ask Me Anything), where she said the following:

“Those reports have been greatly exaggerated!”  ”Of course, the script has to be »

Spc sets date for Foxcatcher

22 April 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Sony Pictures Classics has planted an awards season pole for Bennett Miller’s Cannes competition entry. Separately, Relativity Media has picked up Us rights to Hector And The Search For Happiness.

Foxcatcher will launch in the Us on November 14 — more than a year later than originally scheduled.

The film was originally scheduled to screen at AFI Fest 2013 prior to a November 7 2013 release, only for the filmmakers to pull it because they needed more time.

Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo star in the bizarre true story about the relationship between Olympic Wrestling Champion brothers Mark and Dave Schultz and eccentric heir John du Pont that led to murder.

Rounding out the cast are Vanessa Redgrave, Sienna Miller and Anthony Michael Hall.

Megan Ellison is co-financing the film with Columbia Pictures and produces through Annapurna Pictures with Miller, Jon Kilik, and Anthony Bregman. Panorama handled international sales.

The 'Gone Girl' Movie Will Stick Pretty Close to Book, New Ending Aside

22 April 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

While rumors have swirled that the ending to the big screen adaptation of "Gone Girl" will differ immensely from the source material, author Gillian Flynn insists that the movie will still closely resemble its literary counterpart.

Flynn, who's adapting her own book for director David Fincher's film, wrote in a recent Reddit Ama that fans of the novel shouldn't worry about news of changes to the story.

"[T]hose reports have been greatly exaggerated!" she said. "Of course, the script has to be different from the book in some ways-you have to find a way to externalize all those internal thoughts and you have to do more with less room and you just don't have room for everything. But the mood, tone and spirit of the book are very much intact."

The author also noted that since she was the one scripting her own work, she was afforded a very hands-on approach to the movie, »

David Fincher Photographs Rosamund Pike's Smeared Dark Side for W Magazine Updated

21 April 2014 12:18 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Update: Rosamund Pike, aka the "Gone Girl" at the center of David Fincher's latest thriller set to hits theaters in October, graces the cover of May's W Magazine. The cover image and photo spread inside were taken by Fincher. Check it out, plus the film's recently released trailer, below. Though Pike ("The World's End," "Jack Reacher") isn't yet a household name, that will all change come this fall when she stars in the adaptation of Gillian Flynn's bestseller. Fincher has a knack for sensational, breakout casting (Rooney Mara, for example, was hardly known before her Oscar-nominated turn in Fincher's "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"), and Pike could very well follow the same rise. Due to plot twists in the story, she's not featured very much in the first trailer -- it's mostly all about Ben Affleck -- but it's a role that will require some serious chops. »

YNMS²: Foxcatcher & Gone Girl

19 April 2014 4:13 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Unless you count the Lego Movie's probable Best Animated Feature bid and the Sundance bow of Love is Strange (I'm still hopeful - it's playing Tribeca right now) 2014 hasn't seen much in the way of Oscar contenders just yet. Recent trailers are changing the collective shrug to raised eyebrows - between The Homesman (previously discussed), Jersey Boys (if you're feeling very generous), the Cannes lineup announcement and these two trailers from past nominated directors Bennett Miller (Foxcatcher) and David Fincher (Gone Girl) the body is ready for the first wave of Oscar predictions. We'll manage them before April wraps.

Both of these trailers have been around for a bit and both blissfully play more like teasers despite their length; the job of a trailer is to sell a future ticket, not to make you feel like you've already seen it so you don't need one.  Foxcatcher's traiser was actually »

Adapting ‘Gone Girl’

19 April 2014 11:22 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Note. There are no specific spoilers for Gone Girl in this piece.

Gone Girl is a powerful bullet-train of a novel that takes a little while to get you settled in to your seat, but once you’re in and buckled up, brace yourself, because it doesn’t let you go until the final gripping page, and you’ll be hitting a lot of mountains and hairpin turns along the way.

It is, in some ways, an odd choice to be adapted as a film, however. Firstly, it’s a strange hybrid of a novel: most fully a thriller, it also includes an absolutely incisive take on societal interaction, particularly human hypocrisy and the way certain personality types see truth and reality. It hovers right on that ephemeral, yet existing line between genre fiction and “literary” fiction, and has been included on many “to read” lists from literary sources, though »

Check Out David Fincher Shot Cover For W Magazine Featuring 'Gone Girl' Star Rosamund Pike

18 April 2014 6:04 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As followers of the filmmaker know, David Fincher likes to have input on every aspect of films, including the marketing, and that has been true of his upcoming "Gone Girl." Back in January, Fincher snapped the EW cover photo featuring the stars of the film, Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, and he's once again played shutterbug for another magazine front. Pike graces the cover of the latest issue of W Magazine, and Fincher is man behind the striking image. The director also explained to the magazine why the actress was right for the lead role in his film. “I liked that people didn’t immediately know who Rosamund was,” he said, adding: “I’d always liked Rosamund in movies, but I didn’t really know her. That made her very interesting.” For Pike, it was a chance to play a character with some real complexity. “In [the play] 'Hitchcock Blonde,' I »

Rosamund Pike: 'James Bond role was trial by fire'

17 April 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Rosamund Pike has revealed that her role in the James Bond movies helped her to learn about herself, as she takes part in a new photoshoot for W Magazine.

The actress, who will play the female lead in the screen adaption of Gone Girl, appeared opposite Pierce Brosnan in 2002's Die Another Day, when she was 21.

"The Bond film was like an ejector seat from normality into a crazy circus world," Pike said. "It was trial by fire. I was 21, and I was made to look far more sophisticated than I felt."

She continued: "Instantly, I had to come to terms with myself as a woman and also as an object. I was looking at myself from the outside for the first time. That awareness, for any girl, is both horrible and fascinating."

Pike also revealed that she had never seen a James Bond film before she was cast in the role. »

David Fincher’s Gone Girl Teaser Trailer Has Appeared!

17 April 2014 9:17 AM, PDT | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

The first full length trailer for director David Fincher's Gone Girl was released earlier this week. Featuring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, the story seemingly revolves around a flashback/modern day narrative in which Ben Affleck's character searches for his wife who has gone missing, and judging by the final shot of the trailer, is presumably dead. I am a pretty huge fan of Fincher's Zodiac and am more than thrilled that he is returning to the true crime genre. All the Fincher staples appear to be present, with the dark cinematography, the seemingly slow burn, yet stylized narrative, and inspired music choices with Richard Butler's cover of Elvis Costello's "She." »
