Gone Girl writer Gillian Flynn dropped the smallest hint ever about a possible sequel to her hit book and film of the same name, saying she would do it— if the original collaborators were on board as well.
Die hard fans of Flynn are grasping on to this, the tiniest sliver of hope ever from the New York Daily News, that the author may revisit the marital shitshow of Nick and Amy Dunne's relationship for a future sequel. She didn't say that was definitely writing a follow-up. But she didn't say that she wasn't writing one either:
Flynn, speaking at the BAFTA LA Annual Awards Season Tea Party, told The News: "There could be a sequel at some point if everyone is game to get the gang back together, it could be really fun a few years from now.
"We could pick it up and see what those crazy Dunnes are up to a few years down the road and if they got on — not well I don't think.
"I would have to have the exact same people to do it — I would want Rosamund [Pike], Ben[Affleck] and [David] Fincher to do it."
She is also definitely down with the idea of Ben Affleck's penis, sequel or otherwise.
"I was all for the cinema realite. He was a total method actor and in playing a man who got in the shower, he played a man who got in the shower....I didn't know exactly how they would film it. I think the screenplay says they get in the shower so I cannot take credit for that."
A sequel might make people who loved the way the story ended cringe, but it makes perfect sense to Hollywood. Since the film's release in October, it has made more than $167 million, according to Box Office mojo. On top of that, it's been nominated for dozens of awards so far this year, including four Golden Globes.
Fans will get a chance to see another collaboration between Fincher and Flynn soon—their upcoming HBO project goes into production later this year.
