Thriller film and TV director David Fincher (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, House of Cards) is turning Gillian Flynn’s creepy bestselling novel Gone Girl into a major motion picture. Starring Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike and Patrick Neil Harris, it will be released in October. Fincher got his Nine Inch Nails collaborator Trent Reznor to compose the film score. Together they won an Academy Award for best score and the Golden Globe Award for the best original score for The Social Network in 2010. (They worked together on The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, too.) “I write most of my songs when I’m in a bad mood,” said Reznor.
And if that wasn’t enough for Flynn fans, Charlize Theron and Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks will star in her satanic Dark Places (out September 1; Flynn makes a cameo appearance). And her debut novel about a series of brutal murders in a small town, Sharp Objects, will be made into a one-hour serialized drama. Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Marti Noxon will write the script. No word yet on who will write the music, but isn’t the frontman of Nine Inch Nails a perfect fit for a film called Sharp Objects?
