Well, that was a lot of drama for a moment. With names like Natalie Portman, Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt, Abbie Cornish, Olivia Wilde and Julianne Hough (really) all being tossed around as potential leads for David Fincher's "Gone Girl," the long-pegged frontrunner has officially landed the job.

Well, that was a lot of drama for a moment. With names like Natalie Portman, Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt, Abbie Cornish, Olivia Wilde and Julianne Hough (really) all being tossed around as potential leads for David Fincher's "Gone Girl," the long-pegged frontrunner has officially landed the job.

THR reports that Rosamund Pike ("Jack Reacher," "An Education" and next month's "The World's End") has landed the female lead opposite Ben Affleck. But perhaps more intriguing is who is being eyed for supporting roles: Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry. Yes, really. We'll leave it to those who have read Gillian Flynn's book to tell us what those parts might be but did you ever think you'd live in a universe where the orbits of David Fincher, Ben Affleck and Tyler Perry would come colliding together? Anything is possible, we suppose.

The film, which follows a man who moves back home to Carthage, Missouri, to open a bar and becomes a prime suspect when his wife goes missing on their fifth wedding anniversary, will start filming in September and we'd reckon there's plenty more to come.
