The UK website ibtimes.co.uk is reporting that Rachel is one of the contenders for the adaption of Gillian Flynn’s “Gone Girl“. They report that Emily Blunt is currently top contender for the movie. Reese Witerspoon is producing the movie.
The novel gains much of its suspense from switching between the perspective of a husband whose wife goes missing, and the missing wife herself. Other contenders for the starring role include Charlize Theron and Rachel McAdams, with Mad Men star Jon Hamm, Ryan Gosling and X-Men actor Michael Fassbender rumoured to be in the running for lead man.
Keep in mind that you should consider this as a rumor since I am not sure how reliable the source is and it seems more like an interpretation of what fans of the book want. I did decided to post it on here anyway, because various media outlets – including National Post – suggested before that Rachel would be a perfect fit for the female lead.
