gone-girl-book-cover-medTwentieth Century Fox plans to release the movie adaptation of the hit novel, Gone Girl, on October 03, 2014. Actor Ben Affleck has taken on the role of Nick Dunne and actress Rosamund Pike plays his spouse Amy.

Director David Fincher and author Gillian Flynn spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the adaptation process. Fincher, who also directed the American version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo movie, did not want to feel “too beholden to the source material.”

In a surprising turn of events, Flynn had deliberately changed the ending of her book for Fincher’s movie. She explained: “There was something thrilling about taking this piece of work that I’d spent about two years painstakingly putting together with all its eight million LEGO pieces and take a hammer to it and bash it apart and reassemble it into a movie” (via The Guardian)

bvsActress Gal Gadot has landed the role of Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder’s Batman Vs. Superman film.

Here’s more from Deadline: “Gadot has been in three Fast & Furious films, as well as Knight And Day and Date Night. Given that Warner Bros has bolstered its starpower with Affleck and has Cavill returning from the summer hit Man Of Steel, it makes sense to groom new stars in the supporting roles, the way that Marvel has done.”

The movie will be released on July 17, 2015. The cast also includes actors Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, and Bryan Cranston as Lex Luthor. Who would you have cast to play the Amazon princess superhero?

How to Write a More Realistic Espionage Story

As Ben Affleck‘s Argo opens today, we caught up with the real life CIA agent behind the movie–getting advice for writing a more realistic espionage story.

We spoke with former CIA agent Antonio Mendez about his book, Argo: How the CIA and Hollywood Pulled Off the Most Audacious Rescue in History. Mendez explained how he assembled a team of agents to rescue stranded diplomats in Iran at the height of a hostage situation that erupted in 1979.

Press play below to listen to the interview, but here’s an excerpt: “We get the question quite often, ‘what is the difference between a CIA officer and James Bond?’ The answer is the espionage agent doesn’t burn up the building and blow up the surroundings on their way out. James always comes out in a flamboyant way. You want to do something that’s innocuous and not so attention-getting. In this case, we created a story that would deflect interest, that would be non-alerting.”

Argo was also inspired by a Wired magazine article about the incident. Follow this link to read that story.

Ben Affleck Directs Adaptation of The Town by Chuck Hogan

The new trailer from the Ben Affleck-directed adaptation of The Town (a crime novel by Chuck Hogan) is embedded above.

What do you think? Affleck also stars in the film, but the cast also features Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm as a hardboiled FBI agent–an intriguing casting call. Release is scheduled for September 2010.

Here is Gawker’s take: “The rest of the cast is terrific. The wonderful Rebecca Hall finally gets the big central role she deserves. Jeremy Renner is always eminently watchable. Plus Chris Cooper, Jon Hamm, and… Blake Lively? Huh? Yeah, Blake Lively dressing it down as a Charlestown house cat with hoop earrings and a lazy accent.”
