Gone Girl: Ben Affleck Poses For a Sinister Wedding Picture

Aug 14 2014 - 10:00am

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 [1] and pictures [2] 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 [3] picture (Ben Affleck [4]'s character Nick is accused of murdering his wife, played by Rosamund Pike).

Fincher also gives a really good reason [5] 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."
