We love a good Book to Film, especially when the book’s author is the screenwriter of the film. This is happily the case for Gone Girl.
Gone Girl – the mega bestselling thriller by Gillian Flynn – was picked up by Reese Witherspoon’s production company, Pacific Standard, with David Fincher (Zodiac and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), in talks to direct. As with all film projects, we won’t know what’s going on until it’s really happening, but it’s fun to play the role of casting director. If we were casting Nick and Amy, we’d pick Jake Gyllenhaal and Emily Blunt. They’re gorgeous – a real “It” couple like Nick and Amy – and they both have a certain menace underneath that shiny surface.
