The Girl in Gone Girl has been found.

David Fincher already landed Ben Affleck to star in the film adaptation of Gillian Flynn's bestselling novel. On Thursday, THR reports the role opposite Affleck has been offered to British actress Rosamund Pike. She is expected to accept.

According to the media outlet, numerous actresses including Charlize Theron and Natalie Portman were considered to play the role of wife-gone-missing, though they were eventually ruled out based on "availability."

Gone Girl was one of 2012's top selling books. Production for the movie starts this September.
