Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike star in the film along with Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Flynn revealed that the movie will have an entirely new third act which will differ greatly from the book's controversial ending.

"Ben [Affleck] was so shocked by it," Flynn recalled. "He would say, 'This is a whole new third act! She literally threw that third act out and started from scratch'."

On the decision to write the new scene, Flynn added: "There was something thrilling about taking this piece of work that I'd spent about two years painstakingly putting together with all its 8,000,000 LEGO pieces and take a hammer to it and bash it apart and reassemble it into a movie."

Gone Girl is set for release on October 3 in the US and the UK.
