Emily Ratajkowski is going to take her sexiness to the big screen.

E! News confirms that the 21-year-old model-actress, who grabbed people's attention after dancing topless in Robin Thicke's music video for his controversial hit "Blurred Lines," snagged a role in David Fincher's Gone Girl, based on the bestselling novel by Gillian Flynn.

Ratajkowski will play Andie, a beautiful college student who Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) has an affair with before choosing to help his wife's parents incriminate him in Amy's disappearance.

The brunette beauty wrote on Instagram, "So happy to announce my casting in David Fincher's 'Gone Girl' opposite Ben Affleck!!!"

Affleck was the first star to be announced in the cast, after having what looked to be a business lunch with Fincher at Caffe Luxxe in Brentwood in July. A little over a week later, Rosamund Pike was cast as his wife, Amy, beating out a number of A-listers including Charlize Theron and Natalie Portman.

Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry are also reportedly up for supporting roles in the film.

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, with shooting slated to begin this fall.
