Ben Affleck is circling David Fincher’s next film “Gone Girl”, set up with 20th Century Fox and New Regency, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on the Gillian Flynn best-seller, the movie – which Affleck would shoot before putting on the director’s cap again for Warner Bros’ “Live by Night” – ”kicks off with the five-year anniversary of a married couple. The wife, yet to be cast, goes missing, and the husband (Affleck) emerges as the prime suspect.”

Flynn wrote the screenplay for the movie, with Reese Witherspoon among it’s producers.
