Reese Witherspoon acquires ‘Gone Girl’

Aha! No sooner did I muse aloud — well, ablog — the other day that Gillian Flynn’s thriller “Gone Girl” (summer-reading perfection, if you ask me) would make a terrific movie , than comes this news: In a seven-figure summer auction, 20th Century Fox has acquired movie rights to the novel. Reese Witherspoon is attached to produce, via her company Pacific Standard; no word on whether she would also star, but it seems likely. “Gone Girl” is told in two voices: a husband and wife, on the occasion of their fifth wedding anniversary. It should be a lovely celebration — but the wife, Amy, has vanished, and the reader gradually learns how and why through Amy’s diary. Could well be a good role for Witherspoon, who’s needed one lately. Congratulations to Flynn, a former Entertainment Weekly writer who’s now got movie deals in the works for all three of her novels, which also include “Dark Places” (with Gilles Paquet-Brenner directing and Amy Adams to star) and “Sharp Objects” (optioned).
