One of my favorite books this year was Gone Girl, and surprisingly, when I heard a movie is already in the works, I was ecstatic. This book just reads like a movie. All throughout the book, I kept thinking how awesome it'd be to do each and every scene - from flashbacks, particular angles, to even the music. (I know, one visually dynamic book and I think I'm James Cameron, whatever.)
Earlier this year, the movie rights were bought by Fox, with Reese Witherspoon set to produce it as well as play the lead role of Amy Dunne, and while I think she's a good actress, I'm not entirely convinced she'd make the perfect Amy. I'm kind of up in the air with the rest of the cast, but for the select few prominent characters, I've got a few recommendations for Hollywood, so casting directors, listen up!
Margo "Go" Dunne:
So that's my main cast. If you've read Gone Girl, do you agree? Or should I be lucky this is only a fantasy job and not a real one?
Also, have you ever fancast someone for a favorite literary character, or the opposite - a favorite celebrity for a certain character? Who was it? Is there any book-to-movie adaptation that's in the works that you're looking forward to? Are you happy with its cast?
