We weren't at all surprised yesterday to see HBO picking up buzzy Jack Black comedy 'The Brink,' what with 2014 bringing the final seasons of 'True Blood,' 'The Newsroom' and 'Boardwalk Empire,' atop the cancellations of 'Family Tree' and 'Hello Ladies,' and now the premium cable network has added even more cinematic pedigree to its lineup. David Fincher has re-teamed with 'Gone Girl' writer Gillian Flynn for an HBO remake of UK series 'Utopia,' sure to attract even more big-name talent to the network.
Before Ben Affleck tackles the Caped Crusader in Zack Snyder's 'Batman vs. Superman,' shooting later this year, he'll be seen in David Fincher's 'Gone Girl' alongside 'The World's End' star Rosamund Pike. A new look at the film, hitting theaters October 3, has graced the cover of the latest Entertainment Weekly issue, shot by Fincher himself and revealing just how crazy in love (emphasis on crazy) Affleck's character is with his wife.
We heard the rumor earlier this month, but it's official: Rosamund Pike has officially joined David Fincher's adaptation of Gillian Flynn's bestselling novel 'Gone Girl.' The 'Jack Reacher' and 'The World's End' actress beat out seemingly every leading lady in Hollywood and, if Fincher brings his usual game, it may be the role that shoots her to the top of the A-list.
There's been a ton of casting speculation involved in David Fincher's upcoming adaptation of the Gillian Flynn novel 'Gone Girl,' with names like Charlize Theron (who's starring in another Flynn adaptation, 'Dark Places') and Reese Witherspoon (who is producing the film but not starring) being tossed about, but now it looks like Fincher may have found his leading lady.
