David Fincher's Gone Girl with Ben Affleck adds Tyler Perry, Patrick Fugit, and Kim Dickens

David Fincher's next film, GONE GIRL, based on the mystery novel by Gillian Flynn, has just stacked the cast deck, but it's with a very unlikely and surprising batch of actors. Foregoing the typical casting choices that would befit a film of this type, the already cast Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, are being joined by none other than Tyler Perry (ALEX CROSS), Patrick Fugit (ALMOST FAMOUS), Kim Dickens (HOLLOW MAN), Carrie Coon (HBO's upcoming The Leftovers). In addition, How I Met Your Mother's Neil Patrick Harris is also in negotiations to join the film, making this one of the most interesting assembled for a mystery thriller.

Here's the book synopsis:

Just how well can you ever know the person you love? This is the question that Nick Dunne (Affleck) must ask himself on the morning of his fifth wedding anniversary, when his wife Amy suddenly disappears. The police immediately suspect Nick. Amy's friends reveal that she was afraid of him, that she kept secrets from him. He swears it isn't true. A police examination of his computer shows strange searches. He says they aren't his. And then there are the persistent calls on his mobile phone. So what has happened to Nick's beautiful wife?

Apparently, Fincher was impressed with Perry's turn in ALEX CROSS that he was courted for the role of the lawyer. Fugit and Dickens will play detectives investigating the case, while Harris would play an ex-boyfriend of the missing wife. Like most folks, I'm a fan of Fincher's work, and the addition of this cast is making me shake my head up and down with the "impressed
Robert De Niro face." Sounding better with each new announcement. Now, if they can get Trent Reznor back for the score...

GONE GIRL is set for release sometime in 2015.

Extra Tidbit: I'd still like to see what Fincher would do with a Mission:Impossible film. What kind of pic would you like to see Fincher work on?

Interesting cast for sure, if it wasn't Fincher directing I probably wouldn't think much of it but with him at the helm these actors will be used to their full potential.

As for the extra tidbit, always wanted to see his talked about dark version of Spider-Man.

David Fincher will get the most out of all these actors. I hope. Great to see Neil Patrick Harris in something other than a tv show.

I'd like to see Fincher do another non-crime related drama like The Social Network. Fincher was totaly robbed of an Oscar with that film, and this is coming from someone who like The King's Speech as well.

The Social Network was incredible. He should've taken best director and Jesse Eisenberg should've taken Best Actor.

Agreed. There was no way King's Speech was gonna lose Best Picture, but they should've at least split the ticket and gave Fincher Director.

Extra tidbit: An original story set in the Silent Hill universe. More the psychological drama and less the gore.

NPH is PERFECT casting for Desi.

I want to see Fincher do that post-Chicago Elliott Ness tracking serial killer in Cleveland flick he was once attached to.
