Tyler Perry Joins David Fincher's GONE GIRL

Tyler Perry is the latest edition to David Fincher's adaptation of the best-selling novel "Gone Girl". The cast already stars Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike and Neil Patrick Harris. Perry is set to play Nick Dunne's (Affleck) wise-cracking, sleazy attorney Tanner Bolt. Sure, maybe I was hoping for Bob Odinkirk, who masterfully portrays Saul Goodman on "Breaking Bad", but perhaps Tyler will do the part justice.

Kim Dickens ("Deadwood") and Patrick Fugit ("Almost Famous") also joined the cast as the two main detectives on the case, and Carrie Coon ("Ironside") has joined to play Dunne's twin sister.

Tyler was definitely a strategic choice, having a huge following and larger-than-life supporters like Oprah in his corner. His writing, directing and acting credits include such films as "Temptation", and his very successful "Madea" franchise.

Based on Gillian Flynn's novel, the story follows Nick Dunne (Affleck), who is the prime suspect in his wife's (Pike) disappearance case. Under the intense scrutiny of the whole town, nation and the police department, with the help of his lawyer Bolt, Dunne hopes to prove that he's innocent and that the truth may be more complicated than it seems.

Do you think Perry is a good addition? Let us know in the comments section below!

"Gone Girl" is aiming to start production this Fall.

    Incredibles was the best all rounder movie in animation history, humour for young & old, gadget & geek factor for young & old, family values, awsome backdrops of epic scale scenery.  Not to mention the... Spy factor! Secret islands! Apocalyptic doomsday robots! A freakin villain which goes by the name of "Syndrome" (totally awsome name for a villain by the way) Oh and did i mention all this in a SUPERHERO MOVIE!!!  I wish they make a sequel one day soon. Until then i guess i have marvel & DC to keep me entertained, but i suspect that any live action superhero movie may never live up to style and class of Incredibles.  PIXAR are truly genius. Thank you FROM, Nayan, U.K.
