David Fincher to Adapt 'Gone Girl', Because This Guy Loves Dark Bestsellers About Killing

By Michael Arbeiter, Hollywood.com Staff

David Fincher must spend a lot of time on the subway, because he seems to choose his film prospects based on the subterranean transport system's most common reading material. The director has embraced a variety of nose-burying pandemics to produce beloved big screen productions like Fight Club, The Social Network, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (okay, not all were so beloved). Now, yet another piece of bestselling literature might find itself earning the Fincher touch: Deadline reports that the filmmaker is in talks to adapt the 2012 novel Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.

The source material is none too far a stretch for Fincher, who dabbles regularly in the realms of psychological thriller and gritty drama. The story, which chronicles the plummet of a young couple's marriage as suspicions arise linking husband Nick to unsolved murders, feels like the kind of thing with which the dark sensibilities of Fincher might have a field day.

So now that Fincher is the big name to take hold of the camera, who could step in as stars Nick and Amy? (Considering the fact that Reese Witherspoon is on board as producer, we might not be too far off in believing that she has a shot at the lead female.)
