'Gone Girl' Lawsuit Against Reese Witherspoon, David Fincher and Gillian Flynn Dismissed

'Gone Girl' Lawsuit Against Reese Witherspoon, David Fincher and Gillian Flynn Dismissed
The author and filmmakers behind the novel and feature film adaptation of Gone Girl are clear of claims that parts of the plot were stolen from an unproduced screenplay after an Illinois federal judge on Monday dismissed with prejudice the writer's claims. 

Leslie Weller in December sued Reese Witherspoon, David Fincher, author Gillian Flynn and other individuals and companies connected to the Gone Girl book and film, claiming the works ripped off her screenplay titled Out of the Blue. Weller claimed that, between the time she finalized the draft in 2008 and Flynn's book was published in 2012, Flynn accessed the ...

10 Actresses We Can Totally See Playing Princess Diana on The Crown

As Netflix's highly anticipated third season of The Crown begins to take shape, we've found ourselves with one very important question: who will play Princess Diana? Since the series is going to move into the late '70s by the end of the new season, that means a young Diana - who should be in her late teens, if the timeline is right - will be introduced when she first meets her future husband, Prince Charles.

There have been rumors that Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner could take on the role, but she's not the only actress out there who could embody the iconic royal. Not to mention, the historical drama will presumably have to recast Diana as she gets older in season five (she tragically died at age 36 in 1997). From Turner to Gone Girl's Rosamund Pike, read on to check out everyone we could see taking

So, while you're soaking up the sun - or staying inside in the comfort of your AC, we don't judge - why not dig in to one of the following books?

Emily Ratajkowski Covers "Marie Claire"

Sneak Peek new images of "Gone Girl" actress Emily Ratajkowski in the June 2018 issue of "Marie Claire" (Us) magazine, wearing Burberry, Ralph Lauren, Chloe and a whole lot more, photographed by Thomas Whiteside:

"I've gotten over the fact I've got no privacy," said Ratajkowski. "This is not the right way to think, politically - that you 'have nothing to hide'...

"...but I always hated when I was growing up how people would really freak out about paparazzi following them.

"When people google my name they see this bikini sex-symbol kind of thing and they're scared to cast as anything but that. 

"So I'm taking a long and I hope, high road of basically wanting parts that I'm most excited about, which can be really annoying."

Cannes Review: Asghar Farhadi’s ‘Everybody Knows’ Leaves a Sour Note on Opening Night

Disregarding the vomitus of clichés with which Asghar Farhadi introduces the rural Spanish milieu of Everybody Knows, for the first half-hour or so, the Iranian director actually appears to be trying something more structurally daring and compelling than in any of his previous work. In depicting Laura’s (Penélope Cruz) return from Argentina to attend a family wedding in her native village, the film flits through a vast number of characters and locations, drawing a complex web of connections amongst family members, friends and other villagers. The rapid succession of very short scenes disallows for a clear character configuration to emerge. Instead, a feeling of intimate acquaintance between all inhabitants of the small village is established, while the uneasy mix of social classes and scattered intimations of discontent amongst some of the characters hints at a rotten underside to the pastoral joviality on show. The ominous disorientation that arises almost

“A Simple Favor”

Another addictive mystery is moving from bookshelves to the big screen. Following in the footsteps of page-turners such as “Gone Girl” and “Girl on the Train” is “A Simple Favor,” Darcey Bell’s 2017 debut novel. A teaser has landed for Paul Feig’s take on the thriller with Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively in the lead roles.

“I do consider Emily my best friend,” says Stephanie (Kendrick). “She is this wonderful, elegant person.” Cue glimpses of impossibly glamorous Emily (Lively) beaming with the perfect smile, wearing the perfect clothes, and preparing the perfect martini.

But all is not as it seems. Emily’s husband Sean (Henry Golding) describes her as an “enigma” and hints that it’s possible to get close to her, “but never quite reach her.” And Stephanie acknowledges that “everybody has a dark side,” but pointedly adds, “some of us are better at hiding it than others.

First Teaser for 'A Simple Favor' Starring Anna Kendrick & Blake Lively

"Everybody has a dark side... Some of us are better at hiding it than others." Lionsgate has released the teaser trailer for a film titled A Simple Favor, the latest from acclaimed director Paul Feig. Even though he's been making comedies, this film is not a comedy, more of a mystery thriller in the vein of Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train. Anna Kendrick plays a mommy vlogger who seeks to uncover the truth behind her best friend Emily's sudden disappearance from their small town. Blake Lively co-stars as Emily, and this also stars Linda Cardellini, Henry Golding, Rupert Friend, Eric Johnson, Jean Smart, Sarah Baker, and Andrew Rannells. I'm glad to see Feig shaking things up and doing something different, and this first tease is very slick - I dig the music and the mysterious clues. Here's the first teaser trailer (+ teaser poster) for Paul Feig's A Simple Favor,

Kendrick stars as mommy blogger Stephanie, who is quite pleased when her young son becomes best pals with glamorous Emily’s (Lively) own offspring. While the boys enjoy play dates and sleepovers, their moms apparently double down on the martini-drinking and secret-swapping.
