In case you didn't know, Gillian Flynn's massively successful novel Gone Girl is about to take to the big screen, and the adaptation is not only being scripted by the author herself but also directed by the amazing David Fincher.
As if that wasn't enough, the film is already getting high praise. Though in this case it might be a little bit biased.
Neil Patrick Harris popped into the Huffington Post to talk about a number of things, including his acclaimed turn on stage in Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Naturally, talk turned to Gone Girl and the actor, who has a part in the film, revealed that he's already seen a rough cut.
Fincher screened an early version of the film late at night recently and Harris said he loved it: "I loved the book and I thought since Gillian did the screenplay as well its in most ways true to the book. Mostly in its unsettling nature."

It all sounds very positive - Fincher is a great choice of director for the film, even if its more conventional fare than we'd like him to be making. Flynn's book is a highly entertaining read and there's something sinister about it which Fincher can definitely translate to the big screen.
Harris' phrasing is interesting though, some reports have suggested that there will be some significant changes made to the film, particularly the ending and his quote could bear that out. 'In most ways true to the book' could mean a lot of things and anything major could annoy fans but the many readers might also like to see things go a little differently.
Gone Girl is in cinemas in October 2014.
