The Wrap is reporting that Emily is one of the actresses considered for the female lead in “Gone Girl”.
As “Argo” director Ben Affleck preps his next movie “Live By Night” for Warners, the actor has begun negotiating to play the male lead in David Fincher’s “Gone Girl,” people familiar with the project told TheWrap.
Natalie Portman, Charlize Theron and Emily Blunt considered for title role; producer Reese Witherspoon will not star.
Witherspoon is producing with her Pacific Standard partner Bruna Papandrea and Leslie Dixon. New Regency is co-financing “Gone Girl,” which could start production as soon as this fall.
