A change to the end of the movie adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s best-selling novel Gone Girl is set to divide fans.
The screenplay, rewritten by Flynn herself and directed by David Fincher (Fight Club, The Social Network) is due out in October.
Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike are set to star as the novel’s couple Amy and Nick Dunne. Nick becomes prime suspect when Amy vanishes from their rural home on their fifth wedding anniversary.
Flynn isn’t giving anything away, however she has said; “There was something thrilling about taking this piece of work that I’d spent about two years painstakingly putting together with all its eight million Lego pieces and take a hammer to it and bash it apart and reassemble it into a movie,”.
This isn’t the only novel of Flynn’s that is set to be made into a movie this year; Dark Places is also set for release in 2014 and will star Chloë Moritz, Christina Hendricks, Nicholas Hoult and Charlize Theron.
If you haven’t yet read any of Gillian Flynn’s novels then get to it before the movies are released. Expect to be on the edge of your seat…and possibly needing to sleep with the light on!
