Gone Girl: Ben Affleck Poses For a Sinister Wedding Picture

Gone Girl might be one of our most anticipated movies of the Fall, since the Gillian Flynn book was so addictive and creepy. The recent trailer and pictures have been assurances that director David Fincher is doing justice to the source material, and on the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, we get a bone-chilling wedding picture (Ben Affleck's character Nick is accused of murdering his wife, played by Rosamund Pike).

Fincher also gives a really good reason for casting Affleck. "We knew we needed somebody who was charming and could be seductive, who could be a ladies' man, a guy's guy, a frat boy. But most important, [someone] who had the wits and experience of knowing that situation. The gift of having Ben Affleck is that this is a guy who knows. He knows what a lose-lose situation is and understands what's funny about it, however sad." Affleck added that to play Nick, who experiences intense media scrutiny, "It wasn't something I had to do a lot of research for. I knew what it was like to have the tabloid world paying attention to me and ascribing negative motivations to whatever I might be engaging in. I knew what it was to be cast in a soap opera I had no control over."
