There could be a Gone Girl sequel, reveals Gillian Flynn

The bestselling author says a second instalment of the blockbuster would revisit the Dunnes years later


Gone Girl might be coming back. Gillian Flynn – author of the best-selling novel and screenwriter of David Fincher’s film adaptation – has said she’s open to another movie about one of fiction’s most dysfunctional couples, Nick and Amy Dunne.


“There could be a sequel at some point if everyone is game to get the gang back together,” she told the New York Daily News. “It could be really fun a few years from now to pick it up and see what those crazy Dunnes are up to a few years down the road and if they got on — not well I don’t think.”

Gone Girl tells the story of Amy and Nick Dunne, a seemingly ordinary couple who turn out to be far from it. In Fincher’s film adaptation, Rosamund Pike played Amy and secured a Golden Globe nomination for her performance, while Ben Affleck took the role of Nick. 


Flynn said that if she were to revisit the Dunnes, she’d want the same trio. “I would have to have the exact same people to do it — I would want Rosamund [Pike], Ben [Affleck] and [David] Fincher to do it.”
