Rosamund Pike Will Get Gone for David Fincher

Gone Girl Novel CoverWhile she’s waiting for Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise to get that “Jack Reacher” sequel up and running (aren’t we all? Am I right, Jack Reacher fans?), actress Rosamund Pike will have plenty to keep her busy.

She’s signed on to star as the female lead opposite Ben Affleck in David Fincher’s highly anticipated mystery/thriller “Gone Girl”, based on the novel by Gillian Flynn.

Apparently Pike beat out some heavy hitters for the role, including Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman, Emily Blunt, Abbie Cornish and Olivia Wilde.

She will play “a wife who goes missing on her fifth wedding anniversary, as her husband (Affleck) becomes the prime suspect.” Much of the film, we’re told, will be revealed in flashbacks.

With the two primary leads set, Fincher is now eyeing Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry for supporting roles.

Flynn adapted the book herself, with production set for this September.

    Pike, I was incredibly distracted in the scene between her and Cruise in Reacher when they were in her office. I don’t know if it was the screen size, but her boobs were just…obviously framed or something.

      She was apparently 5 months pregnant when she shot “Jack Reacher”… :)

        Haha…then I blame it all on the physiological triggers!

    I’m surprised she’s coming back for another Jack Reacher. I don’t remember her character being in any of the other books?

      She probably isn’t. That’s probably just wishful thinking on my part. I always thought that was one of the big issues with the Jack Reacher books. He has no anchor. He did have a love interest that spanned two books, I believe, a lawyer character that wasn’t the same one that Pike played.
