Ben Affleck fights for his innocence in the first official 'Gone Girl' trailer -- VIDEO

Gone-Girl-EW-First-Look

The beautiful, brilliant, and “amazing” Amy Elliott Dunne is gone and all accusatory eyes are laser-focused on her too-handsome husband, Nick. It’s a cruel but inevitable outcome when your wife happens to go missing on your fifth wedding anniversary.

In Gone Girl, we’re left to put together the intricate pieces of the mysterious disappearance. Is Amy (Rosamund Pike) dead? Is Nick (Ben Affleck) innocent? Is it that simple? Or is it pointless to speculate since we already know that author Gillian Flynn tossed out her own third act for something completely new?

The first official trailer doesn’t tell us much (would we even want it to?). But, no one creates a thick cloud of anxiety quite like David Fincher.

Ben Affleck on what to expect from David Fincher's 'Gone Girl' -- EXCLUSIVE

As a director, Ben Affleck is three-for-three, a perfect batting average that includes Gone Baby Gone, The Town, and a Best Picture Oscar for his last film, Argo. But he’s not above picking up pointers from his own directors. To that end, Affleck is in the midst of what might be considered a Ph.D. filmmaking class on the set of Gone Girl, David Fincher’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s best-selling novel about a woman who goes missing on her fifth wedding anniversary. “I truly kind of show up with a notepad,” says Affleck, who plays Nick Dunne, the husband who is suspected of his wife’s murder. “He’s the only director I’ve worked with who I felt like could do everyone else’s job as well, if not better, than they could; who is able to articulate exactly what he was thinking; and who understands the technical side of the work as much as the creative side, which is to say, a lot. I’ve learned more from David in a day or two than I have most movies I’ve spent 80 days on.” READ FULL STORY

'Gone Girl' gets release date

Gone Girl, an adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s bestseller, has gotten an awards-ready release date from Fox: Oct. 3, 2014.

The film, which stars Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit, Tyler Perry, and Neil Patrick Harris and will be directed by David Fincher, centers on a man (Affleck) suspected of killing his wife and the media circus that surrounds the case. With lots of twists — not to mention narrators — it’ll be interesting to see how the tale is transferred to the big screen.

Currently, the only other release that weekend is Universal’s Dracula Untold, starring Luke Evans, according to Box Office Mojo.

Tyler Perry joins the cast of 'Gone Girl'

Tyler Perry has joined the cast of Gone Girl, EW has confirmed.

Perry will play defense attorney Tanner Bolt, the man who reps Nick (Ben Affleck) after his wife disappears. Deadline, which first reported the news, also says Kim Dickens and Patrick Fugit are nearing deals to star as the detectives investigating Amy’s (Rosamund Pike) case. Neil Patrick Harris is currently in talks to play Amy’s old boyfriend, Desi Collings, EW has confirmed.

The David Fincher-directed thriller, based on Gillian Flynn’s popular novel of the same name, centers around the disappearance of Amy and the case against her prime-suspect husband, Nick. Reese Witherspoon optioned the novel in 2012 and is producing the film, which is set to begin production later this month.

'Gone Girl': Rosamund Pike offered lead role

Rosamund Pike, the former Bond Girl who recently starred in Jack Reacher opposite Tom Cruise, has been offered the starring role in David Fincher’s adaptation of Gone Girl, Gillian Flynn’s best-selling thriller about a young wife who goes missing on her fifth anniversary. Sources close to the production confirmed the offer, and the Hollywood Reporter, which initially reported the news, claimed that Pike had won the role over several bigger-name actresses, including Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman, and Emily Blunt.

Ben Affleck has already been cast as the cheating husband who is immediately suspected when his wife disappears without a trace. Reese Witherspoon optioned the novel in 2012 and is producing the film.

David Fincher reportedly in talks to direct 'Gone Girl' movie

David Fincher, the man behind creepy procedurals Zodiac and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoomight be turning his camera toward Gillian Flynn‘s blockbuster 2012 novel Gone Girl.  According to Variety, the director is in early talks to tackle the project, which is being produced by Reese Witherspoon (no word yet on whether she’ll also appear in the film). Flynn’s dark mystery — about a husband dealing with his wife’s sudden disappearance — was one of 2012′s biggest (and best) novels. The author, a former Entertainment Weekly TV critic, is writing the screenplay. If Fincher does end up signing on the timing of the project is unclear, since the director is already reportedly attached to a 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea movie and might still take on Girl With the Dragon Tattoo sequel The Girl Who Played With Fire.

David Fincher brings animated project 'The Goon' to Kickstarter

David Fincher may be a big-name director, but that doesn’t mean his name alone can turn dream projects into reality. Take The Goon, Fincher and Blur Studio’s proposed animated adaptation of Eric Powell’s inventively manic Dark Horse comic series. Despite the creation of a three-minute “proof of concept” teaser that has been making the rounds on the Internet since 2010, Hollywood still hasn’t taken the bait. So that’s why the studio and The Social Network director are bypassing the traditional greenlighting process and going straight to the public. A Kickstarter campaign launched today aims to raise $400,000 in the next month to fund an extended story reel — “a complete look at the film’s potential” — that would be used to convince studios to pick up the film.

The comics are a winkingly over-the-top salmagundi of zombies, robots, monsters, and gangster archetypes, and follows the crackling and un-PG adventures of the hulking Goon and his quick-patter companion, Franky. Actors Clancy Brown and Paul Giamatti, who lent their voices to the original pitch video, are set to reprise their roles. The Kickstarter page claims that while that video was well-received, more is required to sway the suits, considering it “isn’t a sequel or filled with dancing animals.”

Fincher also teamed up with Blur Studio’s Tim Miller and Jeff Fowler for this funny (and multi-targeted) launch video. READ FULL STORY
