David Fincher's 'Gone Girl' Dated for October

Gone GirlFox revealed some updated 2014 release dates this afternoon, the highest profile of which was a October 3, 2014 release date for David Fincher's Gone Girl, the adaptation of the Gillian Flynn novel starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. The film shares a release date with Gary Shore's Dracula Untold, which stars Luke Evans as the famed Count.

Fox also dated Paul McGuigan's Frankenstein starring Daniel Radcliffe as Igor and James McAvoy as Dr. Frankenstein. The film was previously set for an October 17, 2014 release, but it has been shuffled off to the dead zone, January 6, 2015.

Finally, filling in that October 17 date is the Guillermo del Toro-produced animated feature Book of Life to be directed by Jorge R. Gutierrez. There's no voice cast as of yet, but the film is described as a Romeo and Juliet-inspired love story set during a Day of the Dead celebration.

    I'm strangely interested in Radcliffe's career despite not being a Potter fan, how odd.

      The guy's got some acting chops but Harry Potter restricted him a lot.

    Both Gone Girl and The Book of Life could both be really good.

    Not familiar with the story and haven't read the book, but as it's directed by Fincher, I'm very much anticipating Gone Girl (as much as one can this far out, anyways).

    Fincher is going to have his work cut out for him making this a watchable movie; the book Gone Girl isn't very good. I hope he completely just ignores the books final third section and creates a better ending.

    I cant wait for Gone Girl. One of my favorite books of the year. Plus, with Fincher at the helm, my anticipation of a "masterpiece" (just kidding!) grows with every bit of news.
