Regarding the casting of the title character, David Fincher said he wanted an actress with a Faye Dunaway type of persona. The director told Playboy magazine, "I wanted Faye Dunaway in Chinatown, where you think, 'This person has experienced avenues of pain that no one can articulate'. Or Faye in Network, where it's, 'You're never going to get to the bottom of this, so just stop'. It's crazy how much Rosamund reminds me of Faye." See more »

Dark And Twisted, Full Of Great Visual Storytelling
Dark and twisted, David Fincher's stylish new mystery thriller was derived from Gillian Flynn's intriguingly slick tale from her complex and suspenseful novel. By far one of the best acting performances to have come from Ben Affleck, 'Gone Girl' boasts some strong yet disturbing portrayals from Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry and Affleck. Fincher has garnered fame and recognition as a mainstream director, that is not only able to engulf the audience within the picture, but actually make them part of the scenario. Fincher exercises upon his trademarks with the swift and stunning cinematography, the chilling score and tight editing, all of which makes 'Gone Girl' a movie full of great visual storytelling.
