Now for some bittersweet news: It looks like David Fincher will be directing another girl instead of Rooney Mara in his next project. The talented director is in talks to direct Gone Girl, based on a novel by New York Times’ Best Seller Gillian Flynn.
Before we get into why this is a conflicting piece of information, let’s hand you the details about said film. Gone Girl tells the story of a woman who disappears on her fifth wedding anniversary, but not before her husband opens a bar using her trust fund money. When Amy disappears, her husband is called into question. Did he have anything to do with her going away? Is she dead?
Flynn is writing the script, and Reese Witherspoon is producing along with Bruna Papandrea and Leslie Dixon. It might be very possible that Witherspoon is producing the project to use it as an acting vehicle for herself, »
