Watch: Fincher, Affleck, Pike & Flynn Talk 'Gone Girl' on Charlie Rose
There's no doubt that Gone Girl is a hit, and it's undoubtedly of the most successful films David Fincher has ever directed, and it's likely reached audiences that otherwise might not seek out the filmmaker's work. And if you're like me, then you're hungry to hear Fincher, writer Gillian Flynn and stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike talk about the film itself. They all showed up for a chat on "Charlie Rose" and the result is a solid 36-minute discussion about the making of the film, whether the characters were likable, and of course, the film's commentary on marriage and the insane world of media. It's definitely worth a watch.
Gone Girl is directed by David Fincher (of Seven, The Game, Fight Club, Zodiac, Panic Room, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Social Network, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo previously) and written by Gillian Flynn, based on her own best-selling novel of the same name. In a story primarily told in flashbacks, Rosamund Pike plays a wife who goes missing on her fifth wedding anniversary, and her husband (Ben Affleck) becomes the prime suspect in her disappearance. Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Scoot McNairy and Missi Pyle also star in the film which 20th Century Fox has released in theaters right now. Go see it!
