It’s no surprise to me that Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl has been optioned for a movie. As soon as I finished reading the thriller, I thought, this is going to make an great movie. Flynn landed a seven figure deal with 20th Century Fox. Reese Witherspoon will be producing the movie, along with Bruna Papandrea and Leslie Dixon. I’m excited to hear that Flynn will write the screenplay.
This big news made me think about movies that have been adapted from books. How do you feel about those movie adaptations? Which ones do you think were done well? Head over to our Facebook page and join the discussion.
