For those of you who have been curious about the progress on David Fincher's adaptation of GONE GIRL, the first still from the film has arrived.

Here we see Nick Dunne (Affleck) with the poster of his missing wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) behind him. The photo itself isn't very telling but if you've read the book then you know there's much more here than what we are being shown. It will be interesting to see how Fincher tackles the two perspectives in Gillain Flynn's novel. Flynn herself serves as scribe, and that along with the directing powers of Fincher tell me that we are in for quite the ride.

GONE GIRL starring Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, Casey Wilson, Patrick Fugit, Kim Dickens, and Tyler Perry hits theaters on October 3, 2014.

Synopsis:

On the day of their fifth wedding anniversary, Nick's wife Amy disappears. There are signs of struggle in the house and Nick quickly becomes the prime suspect. It doesn't help that Nick hasn't been completely honest with the police and, as Amy's case drags out for weeks, more and more vilifying evidence appears against him. Nick, however, maintains his innocence. Told from alternating points of view between Nick and Amy, Gillian Flynn creates an untrustworthy world that changes chapter-to-chapter. Calling Gone Girl a psychological thriller is an understatement. As revelation after revelation unfolds, it becomes clear that the truth does not exist in the middle of Nick and Amy's points of view; in fact, the truth is far more dark, more twisted, and more creepy than you can imagine.

Well, I like Fincher, Affleck and Pike, but still.... yet another remake. Or at least yet another story that has already been adapted for the big screen.

The originality drought continues.

Looking forward to this. Fincher will easily make this better than the good yet somewhat anticlimatic book.

Have to say,

Affleck is looking good, so does Pike in the missing photo. I'm very very interested and hopeful for this new psychological thriller from the modern master of twisted dark thrillers!

I LIKE BEN AFFLECK, He emerged with Kevin Smith and for a good ten year run. DURING This time is when I feel Ben learnt as much as he was ever going to as actor. NOW HE IS WORKING WITH A DIRECTOR WHO IS FAMOUS FOR BRINGING OUT THE BEST PERFORMANCES IN ACTORS!

So I see 2 options. BEN LEARNS FROM FINCHER TO BECOME A BETTER ACTOR
OR
BEN IS TO INTERESTED IN ALL THE FIMAKING ASPECTS TRYING TO TAKE IN AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE TO BECOME A BETTER FILMAKER WHILE IGNORING THE DIRECT DIRECTIONS FROM THE

OR MAYBE HE'S BATMAN AND HE WILL BECOME A BETTER ACTOR AND A BETTER FILMMAKER SIMPLY FROM WORKING WITH THE LIKES OF SOMEONE AS CAPABLE AS DAVID FINCHER.

WHO I WOULD LIKE TO SEE BEN DIRECTED BY IS MICHAEL MANN, I PROMISE YOU THAT WOULD BE THE PERFORMANCE OF AFFLECKS LEGACY/CAREER

I read this book as soon as soon as it was mentioned on JoBlo months ago. This was after they confirmed the two leads so it was helpful reading it with them in mind. Rosamund Pike was a very interesting choice and I look forward to seeing how she carries herself in this film.
