Our 14 Most Anticipated Movies Of 2014
Secondly, Flynn's novel worked on a surprising level where it forced the reader to reconsider everything they thought they knew, every few chapters. What could have been a cheap gimmick (or a frustrating one) became an intoxicating device in the hands of this talented storyteller. And now its translation has been handed off to a fascinating filmmaker.
David Fincher has helmed a string of adaptations, from the dark drama Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and the mind-bending Fight Club, to non-fiction-inspired films like Zodiac and The Social Network. He's got a bold sense of style and a gift for sick and shocking twists, making him perfect for this complicated missing-person tale. Making Gone Girl even more intriguing is Fincher's casting choices, which have ranged from the sensible to the startling. With a cast that boasts Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Patrick Fugit, Scoot McNairy, Casey Wilson and one of the women from the "Blurred Lines" video, we could tell you we know what to expect from this movie adaptation. But we'd be lying through our teeth.
