Rosamund Pike tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Sam Kashner that filming Gone Girl was the most grueling experience she has ever had on set. "I spent more time in front of the camera on that film than in my entire career to date, because he's shooting five to six hours of footage a day, and over a hundred days shooting that mounts up," Pike tells Kashner. They shot the scene in which Pike slits the throat of Neil Patrick Harris, who plays her savior/captor, Desi Collings, 36 times; the set had to be remade for each take. "Think of the 36 showers they had to take, to wash the fake blood off," Kashner writes.
"I told them to rehearse it for three days," Fincher tells Kashner, "as we're pumping five gallons of blood out of Desi's throat." They choreographed it for a week, then filmed it with 36 sheets, 450 gallons of blood, and 36 pairs of underpants on hand.
The Medusa reared its head on a recent visit to a shop in London's Soho to buy some imported ham. "I went into this lovely Spanish shop," she tells Kashner, "and the girl said, 'Has anyone ever told you you look just like the girl in Gone Girl?,' and I said, 'Well, that's me.' And then she just looked at me with this deepest look of suspicion. And I said, 'I'm pregnant, so I look a bit different, and I'm English.' And she's like, 'But why are you here?' And I said, 'Well, I'm from here.' And it was like, 'You should not be buying cold cuts in a restaurant in Soho!'" Kashner writes, "Once you're 50 feet tall and in the public's imagination, it's as if you've become an alien being. The public doesn't want you to be real." Read more here!

Further Details:

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is releasing David Fincher's Gone Girl, based on Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel, early next year. The press release cites that the following are 'Blu-ray extras,' then mentions nothing about DVD extras, so I don't actually know if the DVD will be barebones or not:
  • Audio Commentary by David Fincher
  • An exclusive new Amazing Amy story: Tattle Tale  – A 36-page children’s book that is only available with the purchase of the

    Gone Girl
    On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) reports that his beautiful wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), has gone missing. Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick’s portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble. Soon his lies, deceits and strange behavior have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife?

 Jena Malone on 'Inherent Vice,' 'Batman v Superman,' and Her 'Punk'd' Legacy (EXCLUSIVE)
(via Moviefone)

You showed up very briefly in "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1." Is it safe to say you'll be a bigger part of the finale?
There's a lot more to the books. "Part 1" was just part one of the full book. There's a lot more for all of the characters. It's the final chapter, so it's going to be crazy.

Are you sad to see that end?
It is and it isn't. It's nice to see that we've created something so beautiful together but it's more about missing those friendships and being a part of that family.

There have been rumors that you are in talks to join another sizable franchise for a director you've worked with before, as part of Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." Can you say anything?
Ummmm... no.

Penelope Wilton returns to West End as lead in Taken At Midnight
Downton Abbey star Penelope Wilton will return to the West End for the first time in five years when the Chichester Festival Theatre production of Taken At Midnight transfers to the Theatre Royal Haymarket in 2015.

The debut play by Mark Hayhurst, in which Wilton plays the mother of German lawyer Hans Litten who put Hitler on the witness stand in pre-war Nazi Germany, runs at the Haymarket from 15 January until 14 March.
Maternal love is put centre stage in Hayhurst's drama as Litten’s mother confronts the Nazis who have imprisoned her son, putting herself at huge risk.

Wilton, last seen on the West End stage starring opposite Jude Law in Hamlet, is joined in the production by Martin Hutson, Allan Corduner, Pip Donaghy, John Light, Mike Grady, David Yelland, Marc Antolin, Christopher Hogben and Dermot McLaughlin.

Taken At Midnight
Penelope Wilton originates the role of Irmgard, the mother of celebrated lawyer Hans Litten who puts Hitler on the witness stand in 1930s Germany with devastating consequences. The unquestionable love of a mother for her son is at the heart of this compelling new play. Fearless and indomitable she confronts his captors at enormous personal risk to fight for his release against the seemingly impossible might of the Nazi regime. Taken at Midnight will be the first new play to open in the West End in 2015 and runs for only 8 weeks.
  • Haymarket, Theatre Royal
  • Age Suitability: All
  • Genre: Play
  • previews from: 15.01.2015
