Rosamund Pike is in talks to play the female lead opposite Christian Bale in Fox’s “The Deep Blue Good-by” based on John D. MacDonald’s novel.
James Mangold is directing the bigscreen adaptation, with Chernin Entertainment, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson-Killoran producing for Appian Way along with Amy Robinson.
Written by MacDonald in 1964, “The Deep Blue Good-by” is the first in a series of 21 books that followed Travis McGee (Bale), a self-described “salvage consultant” who recovers others’ property for a fee and along the way gets into trouble fighting bad guys and wooing women.
Dennis Lehane penned the script, with Scott Frank working on the most recent draft.
Following the success of “Gone Girl,” which grossed more than $350 million at the worldwide box office and earned Pike an Oscar nomination, Fox and Pike seem happy staying in business with one another.
After the huge opening weekend of “Gone Girl,” Fox quickly offered Pike the female lead in its survival drama “The Mountains Between Us,” which she will shoot after “The Deep Blue Good-by” so “Mountain” can be ready for the proper weather conditions needed to tell the story.
Pike is repped by CAA and Magnolia Entertainment.
Earlier this month Rosamund’s film “Hector and the Search for Happiness” was released on DVD and Blu-Ray in the U.K and now that award season is over I thought it would be nice to add screen captures. Blu-Ray quality captures from the film have been added to our gallery. If you haven’t seen the film yet be sure to check it out as it has a really nice story.
As posted before Rosamund attended the 87th Annual Academy Awards where she was nominated for her work in “Gone Girl”. Unfortunately Rosamund lost out to Julianne Moore but it is still great that she was recognised for her amazing performance as Amy Dunne. Over 150 photos of Rosamund during the event have been added to our gallery with hopefully more to follow.

It has been an amazing ride for Gone Girl actress Rosamund Pike, who, as Amy Dunne, puts the freak on her screen husband Ben Affleck and bloodily dispatches Neil Patrick Harris.
Her Oscar-nominated performance garnered major kudos upon the movie’s release in October and she gave birth to her second child in December.
“To have this new life and this complete career turning point at the same time — it’s a pretty heady cocktail,” says Pike, 36. “But the two are so separate.”
The actress gives USA TODAY’s Bryan Alexander five insights into her world.
1. Her partner likes that Amy Dunne lives within her.
Some might be put off by Pike’s dead-on sociopath performance. Not her true-life partner, Robie Uniacke. “He says it’s part of the appeal,” says Pike.
She found a gateway into her character via online forums such as sociopathworld.com, which discusses, for example, how sociopaths study and feign emotion to appear like regular people.
“It’s people owning it in private, anonymously,” says Pike. “There’s a feeling there that one is not unlucky to be a sociopath. I think they feel more charismatic, more empowered. Life is good, without getting hung on emotional issues.”
2. She has natural-born pipes, but she hasn’t shown them off on film.
London-born Pike is the only child of opera singers Caroline and Julian Pike. She, too, has vocal chops, but hasn’t had screen occasion to share them. Into the Woods director Rob Marshall recently asked informally if she could sing on screen.
“I felt very inclined to say yes. But I have yet to sing in a professional capacity,” says Pike. “Never say never.”
In the meantime, she’s happy to sing Janis Joplin and Bob Dylan in her car.
