A gallery of production stills from David Fincher’s Gone Girl (2014)
Having just finished reading Gillian Flynn’s 2012 best-seller Gone Girl, I can’t fathom what inspired director David Fincher to take on the pulpy page turner as his next project. Particularly considering Fincher’s last film – 2011’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo – was another twisty genre thriller. Gone Girl tells the story of a writer (played by Ben Affleck) who becomes the chief suspect when his estranged wife goes missing on their wedding anniversary.
The film is currently set for an October release. Gone Girl was shot on location in Cape Girardeau, Missouri using the new Red Dragon sensor and its 6K resolution back in September and October of last year. The region’s paper of record – the Southeast Missourian – has posted quite a few behind the scenes pics as well as an interview with Fincher.
Below is a gallery of Gone Girl production stills. All the photos – with the exception of the last, which comes from We Got This Covered – are courtesy of the Southeast Missourian. And here’s a Fincher quote about his surprising choice of favorite director as a kid.
George Roy Hill was my favorite director growing up. Movies he directed, like Slap Shot, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Sting, were amazing. I liked his succinct visual style. His scenes were put together in simple and direct ways. His movies were quite literate. – David Fincher
