Rosamund Pike Being Eyed to Star in David Fincher's GONE GIRL Opposite Ben Affleck

The incredible David Fincher is about to embark on adapting another best-selling novel for the big-screen. His last being the Swedish sensation "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". His next literary feat is set to be "Gone Girl", based on Gillian Flynn's novel. Ben Affleck is in talks to star in the picture but now who will play the other key character; the missing wife?

A respected director and piece of literature like this, naturally would attract some high caliber actresses. Names being tossed around have included Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman, and Emily Blunt. It is now being reported that Fincher's current front-runner is Rosamund Pike, who will next be seen in Edgar Wright's "The World's End". No offer is currently in place but Fincher seems like a man that gets what he wants if all parities involved are passionate about the project, like he is.

Flynn will be penning the screenplay for the film, based on her own book. It's always hard to bring an incredible book to fruition on the big-screen because the layers included on the pages and the beautiful images we create in our minds, know no bounds. I adore that the author is adapting her own book, as it should ensure the fans of the written work will remain intact for the feature film and that no key details are changed too dramatically.

The book centers around a man, whose wife disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary. Clues and suspicion indicate that the man is the woman's killer. The wife is a very complex character however and certainly not just a damsel in distress.

Reese Witherspoon is attached to the project as a producer but is not expected to star in the film.

Do you think Pike is the right lady for the role? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
