‘Gone Girl’ Gets a Release Date

The casting of the Gone Girl screen adaptation was one of the most closely watched in recent memory. But now that the full cast is in place, 20th Century Fox has set a release date: October 3, 2014.

That’s less than a year away! Fox is understandably eager to capitalize on the popularity of the book (and Ben Affleck, post Argo) and get Gone Girl into theaters as quickly as possible. In addition to Affleck, Gone Girl will star Rosamunde Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit and Carrie Coon. David Fincher is set to direct.
