David Fincher in talks for Gone Girl

Jan 23 2013, 10:45am CST | by

David Fincher is in talks to direct a big screen adaptation of 'Gone Girl'.

20th Century Fox recently bought the film rights to Gillian Flynn's bestselling novel about a woman who disappears on the morning of her fifth wedding anniversary, and the Oscar-nominated 'The Social Network' director is now in line to helm the project.

The novel has garnered much buzz including positive reviews from critics and strong sales around the world, enough to catch the attention of Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon, whose production company bought the rights along with Fox.

Reese will produce the film while author Gillian will pen the first draft of the script.

David is no stranger to adaptations with strong female characters; his last movie was the 2011 English-language adaptation of Stieg Larsson's 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' starring Rooney Mara in the sought-after role of Lisbeth Salander.

The director is currently developing Jules Verne's '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea' for Disney.

'Gone Girl', which is a New York Times Bestseller, follows Amy Dunne, whose secret life is uncovered through a series of diary entries after she vanishes on her fifth wedding anniversary and her husband, Nick, becomes a suspect in her disappearance. The book is structured with each chapter alternating between the point of view of husband and wife.

Aaron Sorkin Says Christian Bale Will Be in Every Frame of the Steve Jobs Film

Oct 23 2014 12:00pm CDT | Source: slash film

We thought Christian Bale was a pretty solid choice to play Steve Jobs in Danny Boyle’s upcoming movie, but it turns out we weren’t half as excited as writer Aaron Sorkin is. Calling Bale “the best actor on the board in a certain age range,” Sorkin expressed his confidence that Bale would “crush it” as the late tech guru — in a role that is particularly difficult, and present in every single moment of the film. Hit the jump to read the Aaron Sorkin Christian Bale c ...

UPDATE: Aaron Sorkin confirms his castingUPDATE: Bloomberg has talked to a highly-placed source (one Aaron Sorkin), who confirms Bale is aboard. “We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale,” Sorkin says. “He didn’t have to audition. Well, there was a meeting.” You can see him use an extended sports metaphor in the Bloomberg video here. But we sort of wish he'd announced it like this.He ...

MADEA’S TOUGH LOVE Trailer: Meet Tyler Perry’s Animated Madea

Oct 21 2014 6:03pm CDT | Source: Collider

There’s no new Madea movie hitting theaters this year for the first time in three years, but you’re not completely off the hook.  Tyler Perry may have swapped his Madea getup for a super dapper suit to portray Tanner Bolt in David Fincher’s Gone Girl, but he’s still unleashing his inner Madea for a new animated film, Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Tough Love. I’ve completely lost patience for the film franchise a ...

11 Most Biting Dracula Untold Quotes: My Name is Dracula!

Oct 13 2014 4:08pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

It may have been tough for the Prince of Darkness and his origins story to go up against those Gone Girl quotes as the Ben Affleck starring thrill ride from David Fincher won the weekend box office. But, Dracula Untold should still be quite proud as its $23.4 million first weekend gross is incredibly impressive and it too had some fantastic quotes that helped drive the Universal Pictures effort to reboot their monsters' properties into high gear.

Weekend Box Office: GONE GIRL Defeats DRACULA UNTOLD for Second First Place Finish

Oct 12 2014 11:52am CDT | Source: Collider

For the second weekend in a row Gone Girl is on top of the domestic box office.  And for the second weekend in a row the R-rated drama got the win despite losing Friday to another title.  Last week’s Friday winner was the horror prequel Annabelle, while this week it was Dracula Untold that got the brief taste of glory.  Universal’s horror-fantasy was a lot stronger out of the gate than many expected, though not quite strong enough to chase down Gone Girl.  After taking in an estimated $78. ...
