According to David Fincher, who says that his original comments were taken out of context (which the magazine refutes), "Everything and nothing" has changed when bringing the beloved novel, about a man (played by Ben Affleck) whose wife (Rosamund Pike) goes missing and places him as the prime suspect. He went on: " You're not changing the marrow of the creature. You're just changing the bone structure and the muscles and the skin. And the hair." He then, apparently laughed, and continued: "It's all of its outer sheathing. But at its core, it's exactly what I think Gillian always intended."
Does this clear anything up? Besides the fact that "David Fincher should not be a doctor." We'll know soon enough: "Gone Girl" is the opening film of the New York Film Festival. And you know we'll be there and will report back, giving you all of our thoughts. Including a look at what they changed, what they didn't, and maybe what they should have.
