Director James Mangold (THE WOLVERINE, 3:10 TO YUMA), aside from being attached to the next solo Wolverine flick, has also had his sights set on directing the first in a mystery series featuring sleuth Travis McGee.  THE DEEP BLUE GOOD-BY will follow some of the life and times of McGee as he takes “salvage consultant” jobs, recovering property for clients, taking a big percentage, and getting into misadventures along the way.  Christian Bale is lined up to play the enigmatic McGee and now Sony has hired the lady to play opposite him, the lovely Rosamund Pike.

Rosamund Pike most recently displayed her acting prowess in David Ficher's GONE GIRL, and nabbed herself the Best Actress nomination.  While she didn't take home the statue, her performance was one of the most entertaining of the year, and will undoubtedly pave the way for her to take up some meaty roles in the future.  I'm completely unfamiliar with any of the 21 Travis McGee books but I'm hoping that the character is worthy of Pike's time.  And if she has to slit a throat or two at some point, that couldn't hurt.

She still should have won for Gone Girl, I respect Julianne Moore as an actress but that role was sheer Oscar bait.

Read the book which is pretty pulpy. A few years ago Leonardo Di Caprio was eyed to play Travis McGee. Strong Casting so far. Hope it will rock!

Any other year she would have won for "Gone Girl"

She blew Moore out of the water...Amy was frightening and well played. Moore was good in Alice but it was an extremely standard movie and felt like a "let's finally give it to her" Oscar.

Rosamund Pike is a great actress

Having read THE DEEP BLUE GOODBYE, I think the role is actually below her talents - unless they alter it significantly for the movie. As for Christian Bale as Travis McGee, I'm sure he'll do a good job but Matthew McConaughey would have been perfect for the role.
