Sorry Lisbeth Salander fans, this isn’t the “Girl” movie you were hoping for from David Fincher.
Oscar winner Ben Affleck will star as the male lead in David Fincher’s Gone Girl. Affleck would play a man implicated in the disappearance of his wife on the day of their fifth wedding anniversary.
Reese Witherspoon (who is producing the movie), Natalie Portman, Charlize Theron and Emily Blunt are contenders to star as the wife.
Affleck will get to work on this as soon as he finishes up the gangster flick Live By Night.
