Rosamund Pike Will Star Opposite Ben Affleck in the Gone Girl MovieS

I wasn't the biggest fan of Gillian Flynn's bestselling novel Gone Girl, but I did love [SPOILER] [SPOILER] [DON'T LEAVE OUTRAGED COMMENTS SAYING I DIDN'T WARN YOU ABOUT A SPOILER] psychotic "Cool Girl" Amy, and now we know who'll play the coveted role in David Fincher's upcoming movie: British actress Rosamund Pike.

From THR:

Rosamund Pike has been offered and is expected to accept the starring role opposite Ben Affleck in the 20th Century Fox mystery thriller Gone Girl, which is being co-financed 50-50 with New Regency, sources said. Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry are being eyed for supporting roles.
