'Gone Girl' Movie Set For Release On Oct. 3, 2014


If you're someone who has to read the book before seeing the movie, now might be a good time to pick up "Gone Girl." Twentieth Century Fox announced on Tuesday that Gillian Flynn's best-selling thriller is due out in theaters Oct. 3, 2014.

Flynn signed on to do the adaptation with David Fincher ("The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo") earlier this year.

Ben Affleck stars in the film as Nick Dunne, a man who finds himself at the center of a murder investigation after his wife, Amy, suddenly goes missing in small-town Missouri. Rosamund Pike, who recently co-starred in "The World's End" is set to play Amy Dunne, Nick's charismatic but manipulative wife. Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Patrick Fugit and "Blurred Lines" model Emily Ratajkowski are among the film's co-stars.
