Were Gone Girl to return to the silver screen, Flynn would want the same actors to reprise their roles.
“I would have to have the exact same people to do it – I would want Rosamund, Ben and Fincher to do it,” she said.
Flynn is currently working with Fincher on the HBO remake of Channel 4 conspiracy thriller Utopia as well as producing a TV show based on her novel Sharp Objects and writing a comic book called Masks.
