Is Ben Affleck our Nick Dunne? Possibly.
E! News confirms that the Academy Award-winning actor is in negotiations with 20th Century Fox and New Regency to star in the film adaptation of Gillian Flynn's best-selling thriller Gone Girl, which will be directed by The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo's David Fincher.
Additionally, Affleck was spotted having what looked to be a business lunch with Fincher at Caffe Luxxe in Brentwood on Tuesday. The casually dressed 40-year-old actor wore jeans and a blue button-down shirt while conversing with the director, who matched Affleck's supercazh attire (and even opted to rock a pair of Converse sneakers).
