Emily Ratajkowski is having an exciting summer. First she was one of the topless models in Robin Thicke’s controversial “Blurred Lines” video. Now she’s going to star opposite one of Hollywood’s biggest stars in the upcoming mystery thriller “Gone Girl.”
The Wrap reports that Ratajkowski is nearing a deal to play Andie, the college student with whom Nick (Ben Affleck) has been having an affair. “Gone Girl” chronicles the mysterious disappearance of Nick’s wife, played by Rosamund Pike.
The movie also stars Tyler Perry as Affleck’s character’s attorney, Kim Dickens as a detective and Neil Patrick Harris as Desi, the wife’s former beau. David Fincher (“Fight Club,” “The Social Network”) is set to direct.
Ratajkowski is a London-born beauty who started modeling at age 14. Her previous acting credits include two episodes of “iCarly” and an upcoming episode of “New Girl,” airing Sept. 24 on FOX.
“Gone Girl” is slated for a 2015 release.
