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.

    This reply if for CMO175: Wow... I had to comment on your posting. The fact that you believe Batman vs. Superman would beat Captain America 3 strikes me as uninformed. Zack Snyder is a visual master... but his stories and pacing and color palate are truly lacking in the development process. Superman simply had no soul... the man and the movie. And the silly destruction of the city and the landscape IS out of character with what Superman is. How many people died as Superman himself crashed through buildings and caused explosions throughout the movie? Superman would NEVER allow that to happen, but Zack Snyder and his writer would... and did. And it was a boring, stupid mess. And he WILL bring that soulless idiocy to Batman vs. Superman. Captain America, on the other hand? Winter Soldier is the most exciting super hero movie since The Dark Knight. And I, a 55 year old long time comic book universe fan, WILL be in line for Captain America 3! I will have to be convinced -- a LOT -- to turn around and spend my money, and time, in a Zack Snyder Batman vs. Superman. Zack Snyder stole a bit of my soul -- and I hate him for it -- when he introduced zombies that can run down a car. If zombies existed, in a Zack Snyder universe, and they move FASTER than any human... then he has introduced a horror universe in which man has NO hope of survival! Mankind cannot survive in this universe where vicious zombies have the speed to overwhelm any human survival situation... and that vision kills the suspense in a zombie movie. Where is the hope? That does not exist in a Zack Snyder movie. That man is Sucker Punching all of us. I'm not taking it any more. There are too many other fan friendly directors of fantasy movies for me to follow. I only hope that Disney/Marvel will hire the same brother director team to direct Captain America 3. That will be a smart move, indeed. RLJ
