Movies made from much-loved books are like cheating boyfriends - difficult to trust and generally pretty shitty, with a propensity to fuck things up. Sometimes I love a book so much, I'm too scared to see the film (Cloud Atlas, I'm looking at you). But I do NOT feel that way about Gone Girl, the new David Fincher adaptation of the twisty, sharp and surprising 2012 thriller I devoured on our first Christmas Day in L.A. and adored. Gillian Flynn, the author, also penned the screenplay, Fincher is a master (according to Michael) and I think it's been perfectly cast. Plus, I've only seen rave reviews. So yes, I'll be one of those dorks buying tickets for the day it gets released (Oct 3 here in the US).
Are you excited to see this one? And are there any films based on novels you've loved even more than the book itself?
