Gone Girl

Gone Girl: For an Entertainment Weekly cover promoting the upcoming thriller Gone Girl, director David Fincher "dreamed up the image" -- which is reminiscent of the famed Rolling Stone cover featuring a naked John Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono -- and then shot the photograph, with Ben Affleck as a husband suspected in the disappearance of his wife, played by Rosamund Pike. The movie opens on October 3. [EW.com]

Point Break: Recently we heard that Keanu Reeves had ruled out returning for a remake of Point Break. Fear not, however, for now comes word that Gerard Butler is in "final negotiations" to star in the tale of an FBI agent who goes undercover to bust a gang of criminals. This time, however, the setting will be "the international world of extreme sports," and Butler would take over the role played by the late Patrick Swayze, the leader of the criminal gang. The project is aiming to begin shooting in the summer. [Heat Vision]

Boston Strangler: In December 2012, producer and actor Casey Affleck sold a pitch for a new version of The Boston Strangler, based on a real-life serial killer who terrorized women in the early 1960s. Affleck is attached to star as one of the detectives investigating the case, and now Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo, Never Let Me Go) is in talks to direct. [Variety]

Endless Love Trailer: Arriving in multiplexes everywhere on Valentine's Day, the new version of Endless Love promises -- surprise! -- romance, love and tragedy. A new trailer captures the relationship that develops between a privileged girl (Gabriella Wilde) and an ambitious boy (Alex Pettyfer). [Universal Pictures]
