20th Century Fox has set David Fincher‘s adaptation of Gillian Flynn‘s best-selling novel Gone Girl for October 3, 2014.  Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike star in the lead roles of a story that centers on the disappearance of a man’s wife and the resulting investigation that follows.  The cast also includes Tyler PerryKim Dickens, Emily Ratajkowski, Patrick Fugit, Carrie Coon, and Neil Patrick HarrisGone Girl will share the weekend with Dracula Untold starring Luke Evans.  The fall release date for Gone Girl isn’t too surprising when you consider that David Fincher now caries an awards pedigree, and he’s working from popular source material.

Hit the jump for new release dates for the new adaptation of Frankenstein starring Daniel Radcliffe, and for the Guillermo del Toro-produced animated film Book of Life.

Box Office Mojo reports that Paul McGuigan‘s untitled Frankenstein adaptation has moved from October 17, 2014 to January 16, 2015.  That’s a tad discouraging when you consider the move takes a horror film out of October and dumps it into the January doldrums.  In addition to Radcliffe, the film also stars James McAvoy and Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey).

Finally, Fox has shifted Book of Life shifted back from its October 3, 2014 date to make room for Gone Girl.  The movie will now open on October 17, 2014.  Directed by Jorge R. Gutierrez, Book of Life is “a Romeo and Juliet-style love story set against a Mexican Day of the Dead backdrop.”
