Movie News



Exciting movie news!! Reese Witherspoon has purchased the film rights for two of my favorite books this year. And, she reportedly plans to star as the lead in both films! I'm anxious to find out who will play Nick in Gone Girl. Word & Film likes both Jude Law and Matt Damon, but I'm thinking Bradley Cooper may be just perfect.



You can read more about Gone Girl at Word & Film here. You can also read about Wild at Word & Film here. My review for Gone Girl can be found here. Stay tuned for my review for Wild.

    1. LOL! I think you'll enjoy both, Charlie. Of course, now you'll have RW in your mind as you read. :)

  2. I think Reese Witherspoon is adorable but she doesn't always have great chemistry with the males she plays opposite in films.

    1. She's quite pretty, too. It will be interesting to see what the make-up artists do with her for Wild...

    1. Ooooh, I wish I had a book group with which to discuss Gone Girl. And Wild. And Defending Jacob. Lots to discuss in all of these books. Guess that's why I loved 'em! I'll be anxious to hear what you think of these when you read them, Andi.

    1. No, I haven't had time to write my review for Wild. I just finished writing two for books I finished before Wild. And now I have another to write once I get that one finished. Eeek!

  5. I just went to your review of the book in May and left a comment there, so I'll say here: I'm so looking forward to this book now! I can't say who I think should star as who, though I like both of the actors/actress you put up there. What about Amy Adams too?

    1. Amy Adams would be perfect in this role, too. Hope you get to the book before the movie premiere! ;)

  6. This is very interesting news. Another friend and I were discussing this earlier today and we thought Reese was perfect in some ways for the role and weren't sure about other aspects of the role. It would be fantastic if she could pull it off though. And Bradley Cooper was the first name we came up for Nick. But then we thought that Matthew McConaughey would be an intriguing choice. I am not a huge fan of about 90% of his films, but when he is good he is excellent.

    1. Interesting that you guys also came up with Bradley Cooper. He certainly looks like the Nick I envisioned. I am not a fan of MM and would be terribly disappointed if he landed the role.

      Have you read Flynn's earlier novels?
