    Gone Girl stars, Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, have given us a taste of what to expect from the upcoming movie, as they hit the cover of Entertainment Weekly.

    Rosamund Pike, in her lead role as Amy Dunne, appears lifeless on a hospital bed as her husband Nick Dunne, played by Affleck, embraces her.

    The best-selling novel by Gillian Flynn – who was once, incidentally, employed by Entertainment Weekly – was taken on by Fox last July to be made into a blockbuster. Filming commenced back in October, and it looks like the movie’s on schedule for its October 2014 release date. We. Can’t. Wait.

    The Entertainment Weekly cover was also shot by the film’s director, David Fincher, who is best known for directing films The Social Network and Fight Club. And with Reese Witherspoon on board as producer, and Flynn writing the screenplay, we think this is one adaptation that will live up to expectations.

    Gone Girl follows the story of Nick and Amy Dunne who relocate their lives from New York City to a small town in Missouri where Nick is from. Shortly after their fifth wedding anniversary, Amy goes missing, and her husband Nick becomes a prime suspect in the police case. The story then unfolds from both Nick and Amy’s points of view, leading the reader to question whether Nick really had it in him to kill his own wife.

    If you haven’t already picked up the phenomenally successful novel, add it to your reading list, stat.

    It’s the first time we’ve seen Ben and Rosamund together in their roles as Nick and Amy. Fox shared an exclusive picture from the movie showing an emotional Ben as Nick in a press conference scene on Twitter last month.
