Cape Girardeau a Possible Location for "Gone Girl" Filming
CAPE GIRARDEAU - The movie "Gone Girl," starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, may be filmed in Cape Girardeau.
Although 20th Century Fox has not confirmed where they will shoot, many townspeople have recently had their homes visited by location scouts who photographed and inspected them. A casting call was also held last Saturday, Aug. 19, and around 1,400 out of the 40,000 residents auditioned to be background extras.
The movie is based on a book by Gillian Flynn published in 2012. It is mainly set in a Missouri town on the Mississippi, which has led to the "strong indications" 20th Century Fox has given towards choosing this location.
