British model-actress Emily Ratajkowski is closing a deal to play the mistress of Ben Affleck’s character in David Fincher’s “Gone Girl” at 20th Century Fox and New Regency.
An adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s bestselling mystery novel the story follows Nick Dunne (Affleck), a man who is implicated in the disappearance of his wife Amy (Rosamund Pike).
Ratajkowski will play Andie, a beautiful college student who Nick has an affair with before she bands together with Amy’s parents to incriminate him in her disappearance.
Ratajkowski is best known as the beauty at the center of Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” music video. ‘Girl’ would mark her first major movie role.
Carrie Coon, Tyler Perry, Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit and Neil Patrick Harris also star. Shooting begins this Fall.
