Ugh, the anticipation is unbearable!
Luckily, fans of Gillian Flynn's novel Gone Girl got a special treat tonight, when a still from the David Fincher directed film was released on the Internet. The photo, tweeted out by 20th Century Fox, shows Ben Affleck as the male lead Nick Dunne.
"Check out @BenAffleck as Nick Dunne, a suspect seeking the truth in his wife's disappearance in ," the caption read. Dunne (Affleck) stands at the microphone while a large "missing" poster with his wife's face (played by Rosamund Pike) stands in the background.
The thriller centers on the relationship between Nick and Amy Dunne, a married couple who have hit a rough patch after moving to Nick's small hometown in Missouri from New York after he loses his job,
Amy finds the change from the big city quite difficult, and things take a scary turn when she disappears on the couple's fifth wedding anniversary. To make things even worse, Nick becomes the prime suspect after what seems to be plenty of evidence against him arises.
The cast also includes Neil Patrick Harris, Missi Pyle, Tyler Perry, Patrig Fugit, Casey Wilson, Scott McNairy, Kim Dickens and Emily Ratajkowski. Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea, along with Leslie Dixon, are producing the movie. Flynn wrote the first draft of the screenplay and was rewriting with Fincher, as of July.
Gone Girl is slated to hit theaters Oct. 3, 2014.
