Articles & Interviews, Gone Girl  •  By  •  0 Comments

Gillian Flynn’s hit novel Gone Girl is being adapted into a movie AS WE SPEAK (with Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike taking on the lead roles of Nick and Amy Dunne) and it’s been revealed that the ending of the film will differ from the book.

We always experience mixed emotions when our fave books become films. While on the one hand we’re excited to see the characters bought to life on the big screen, we also get a little flutter of nervousness over the thought that the director and/or actors might, well, f*ck it up.

Luckily, in this case author Gillian is in charge of the plot change – and revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that it was her decision to write a completely different ending to the book’s original conclusion.

“Ben [Affleck] was so shocked by it,” she said of the new scene. “He would say, ‘This is a whole new third act! She literally threw that third act out and started from scratch’.

“There was something thrilling about taking this piece of work that I’d spent about two years painstakingly putting together with all its 8,000,000 LEGO pieces and take a hammer to it and bash it apart and reassemble it into a movie,” she added.

Gone Girl tells the story of the dysfunctional marriage between a man and his missing wife, and will also star Tyler Perry and How I Met Your Mother’s Neil Patrick Harris.

It’s not set for release until October 2014, so we’ve still got a while until we find out what this new ending will entail. SIGH. What do you make of this news?
