Rosamund Pike

Even though an Oscar wasn't handed to Rosamund Pike last weekend, the star of Gone Girl was at least nominated for her stirring performance. And now she's finally lining up her next project as Variety reports Pike will be taking the female lead in the gestating adaptation of The Deep Blue Good-by, based on John D. MacDonald's novel of the same name. Christian Bale is already slated to star in the film as Travis McGee, a self-described “salvage consultant” who recovers others’ property for a fee and along the way gets into trouble fighting bad guys and wooing women. He's a recurring character in a series of 21 books. Read on!

This particular story introduces us to the man who's a knight errant and wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages, and television. He only works when his cash runs out and his rule is simple: he'll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half. Pike also just happened to star in Jack Reacher, which is another recurring literary character who gets caught up in some trouble, albeit with a little more intrigue. James Mangold is directing The Deep Blue-Good-by and with a cast like this, it should be quite an anticipated adaptation. Sound good?

Good. She is good. Bale is good. This should be a solid 8.5.

Yeap. And Mangold has pretty decent movies in his resume, so this has potential.
