Ben Affleck Reuniting With 'Gone Girl' Team for 'Strangers on a Train' Remake

by Mike Fleming Jr.

Ben Affleck and David Fincher will re team on a Warner Bros remake of the Hitchcock classic thriller Strangers On A Train. Gillian Flynn, who adapted her novel Gone Girl for Fincher and Affleck, is in talks to write the script. The film will be produced by Affleck under Pearl Street, the Warner Bros-based banner he runs with Matt Damon. WB’s Jon Berg is overseeing. They are calling it Strangers.

This was one strange movie; but oddly enough I was glued to it. Take a laid-back guy who mixes it up with a brainy woman. Add a lot of mystery and you have a mystifying movie that you won’t want it to end.

This was a movie that threw me off course several times, but then I started smiling as I realized how brilliant Amy Dunn was played by Rosamund Pike. There was no doubt the writers of this plot were on their toes and knew how to keep my attention. I give this an A+++

Now I am going to go watch my other rented movie called Good Marriage. See you later.
