After the success of “Gone Girl,” a film-adaptation of the best-selling novel by Gillian Flynn, Rosamund Pike reveals her thoughts about making a sequel to the film. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
Rosamund Pike revealed that she would love to see a “Gone Girl” sequel. The catch? She wants to do it in 10 years time. At the BAFTA-LA Tea Party on Sunday, Jan. 11, 2015, Pike told E! News that she’s up for reprising her role as Amy Dunne in a “Gone Girl” sequel but added that she would like to see what happens to the Dunne family (especially their child) after 10 years. She also recently revealed that her sex scene with Neil Patrick Harris (Desi Collings) in “Gone Girl” was shot 36 times and said that working with Fincher has made her feel like she’s dealing with the “Minotaur.”
Pike’s sentiments about a “Gone Girl” sequel aren’t alone as the film’s writer, Gillian Flynn, told NY Daily News that a “Gone Girl” sequel could happen “at some point” as long as everyone is up for a sequel. Flynn also said that she would want to have the same cast and staff for the sequel.
“I would want Rosamund, Ben and Fincher to do it,” Flynn added. Flynn also said that for the sequel, she’d want to see what the “crazy Dunnes are up to a few years down the road.”
As for the film’s revealing shower scene where Ben Affleck showed his manhood, Flynn admitted that she was surprised after seeing that because she didn’t know how they filmed the scene. She added, though, that Affleck was “a total method actor” who did what a man who got in the shower does. Missi Pyle revealed to The News that Affleck was fully aware that his manhood could be shown in the film.
“Gone Girl” has received multiple nominations in several categories. The film has been nominated as Best Screenplay – Motion Picture at the Golden Globes 2015. Pike was nominated as Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama in the same event. Flynn won Screenwriter of the Year at the 2014 Hollywood Film Awards.
