It’s hard to believe that it was three summers ago that all we could talk about was the thrilling summer read, Gone Girl.

And for a refreshing change, the movie was almost as good as the book. This was in no small part thanks to the stellar cast and the brilliant direction from David Fincher.

While author of the novel, Gillian Flynn, has remained sceptical on whether or not she may get down to writing a sequel, we do have one ally on our side – none other than Charlize Theron.

The Oscar-winning actress stars in another on-screen adaption of Ms Flynn’s, Dark Places. And it appears that Charlize is as eager as to try and get Gillian to write the next instalment of Gone Girl as we are.

In an interview with E!, the Mad Max: Fury Road star joined reporter Marc Malkin in attempting to woo the author into telling us what happens next to Amy and Nick Dunne.

“Come on,” Charlize urges. “You have to.”

To which Ms Flynn replied, “I don’t know if I can go back to the Dunnes quite yet – those diabolical Dunnes. I think about it every once in a while… I do. It’s hard to shake sometimes.”

Well, at least that didn’t rule anything out!

Thakfully Charlize had a fool-proof plan (hmmm) which she revealed. “I’ll get her drunk tonight and make her sign a contract,” the 39-year-old proposed.

Although it doesn’t look like anything is going to be in the works anytime soon, Gillian has said that she wouldn’t rule out a second film in the future if she could get David Fincher, Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike back on board. 



Dark Places by Gillian Flynn is every bit as creepy and incredible as her bestselling novel, Gone Girl – if you haven't read it then we highly recommend you check it out. 

Now, the trailer for the movie adaption of Dark Places has been released and we are SO excited to see it. 

Starring Charlize Theron as Libby, a woman who witnessed her family being murdered as a child, the movie sets out to find out what really happened that night. 

Libby has always maintained that her brother Ben killed her mum and sisters – but is she missing a vital piece of the puzzle?

Approached by Lyle who's hobby lies in solving murders with The Kill Club, Libby slowly realises all is not what she has always believed…

This movie is set to be as huge as Gone Girl and we think Chalize Theron is going to be the perfect fit for Libby. 



The very first trailer for Gone Girl is here!

This movie has gained a lot of attention as it is the adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s best-selling novel of the same name.

The book was a major hit in 2012 and is being brought to the big screen by David Fincher.

Reese Witherspoon is producing and Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor will be providing the score for the film.

Reznor also providing the very successful score for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo so we can wait to see what he does with this gritty film

Gone Girl stars Ben Affleck as Nick Dunne whose wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), vanishes.

Neil Patrick Harris also stars.



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!
