They’re both accomplished actors in their own right, and Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike have both signed on for the new project “Gone Girl.”

The “Good Will Hunting” hunk is slated to play Nick Dunne, a man who is suspected of foul play after his wife disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary.

Making things even more excited, noted director David Fincher has agreed to helm the film, based on Gillian Flynn’s bestselling mystery novel.

Affleck and Pike will report for duty in September when production is currently scheduled to commence.
