Before Ben Affleck plays Batman, he’ll be playing a husband accused of something terrible. He and Rosamund Pike are the stars of David Fincher‘s upcoming thriller, Gone Girl, based on the best-selling book by Gillian Flynn. Pike plays a seemingly perfect American wife who goes missing and her husband is instantly blamed. From there, things get incredibly surprising and frightening.
With filming set to start soon, Fincher has just revealed the actors who’ll be playing the main supporting roles. Tyler Perry is officially Tanner Bolt, a scumbag lawyer who represent’s Affleck’s character, newcomer Carrie Coon will play Affleck’s sister, and Kim Dickens (Treme, Friday Night Lights) and Patrick Fugit (Almost Famous) will play the detectives investigating the case.

‘At Any Price’ Trailer: Dennis Quaid and Zac Efron Fight in ‘Goodbye Solo’ Director’s Acclaimed New Drama
Posted on Friday, January 18th, 2013 by Angie Han
Half a decade after Zac Efron‘s last High School Musical outing, he’s still working on the challenging transition from Disney dreamboat to serious adult actor. And while he’s not quite there, he seems to be getting a little bit closer with every passing film. Neither The Lucky One nor The Paperboy were particularly well received, but they at least allowed Efron to try his hand at more mature material, and his supporting role in Liberal Arts earned some critical appreciation.
Perhaps Efron’s best shot yet at proving his chops comes from At Any Price, the latest drama by Goodbye Solo and Man Push Cart director Ramin Bahrani. Reactions to the film were all over the place after its Telluride debut last year, but for what it’s worth, our own Peter Sciretta called it his favorite of the festival — better, even, than Argo. Dennis Quaid, Kim Dickens, Heather Graham, Maika Monroe, and Red West also star. Watch the trailer after the jump.
Casting Bits: Jai Courtney Boards ‘One Shot’, Hugh Jackman Wants to Do ‘Glee’, ‘Highlander’ Star Clancy Brown Joins Untitled Ramin Bahrani Project

The cast of Christopher McQuarrie‘s One Shot has been filling up at lightning speed over the past month. Robert Duvall, Alexia Fast, Richard Jenkins, and David Oyelowo have all boarded the project within the last few weeks, and now comes news that Spartacus: Blood and Sand star Jai Courtney has signed on as well. Based on the novel by Lee Child, the story follows military cop turned drifter Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise) as he investigates a string of sniper shootings. Rosamund Pike is also set to star, as a detective who works with Jack to solve the case.
Courtney will be playing one of the bad guys, a highly trained sniper who tries to keep Reacher from finding out the truth. One Shot is scheduled for a February 8, 2013 release. [Cinema Blend]
After the jump, Hugh Jackman thinks that he might want to do Glee, and Highlander actor Clancy Brown gets competitive with Dennis Quaid.
