For years, Michael Bay has been accused of ripping off David Fincher’s visual style. Now, those roles are reversed as Fincher casts 2013’s most buzzworthy model in his adaptation of Gone Girl. Emily Ratajkowski broke out this summer after standing around naked in the music video for Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.” So much so that she is now being cast in roles that don’t require her to rub Carl’s Jr. all over her body.
Ratajkowski will play Andie, the coed with whom Ben Affleck‘s Nick Dunne is having an affair. When his wife goes missing, he must keep this relationship under wraps to avoid implications of guilt. Let’s hope that Fincher can resist the urge to copy Armageddon’s animal crackers scene. (The Wrap)
