From Gillian Flynn, on her screenplay for the acclaimed Gone Girl: “There’s a screenplay book called ‘Save the Cat,'” she continues. “It’s all about making your character likable. In the first ten minutes he should do something that makes you like him. I enjoyed that in the first ten minutes, Nick [played by Ben Affleck] literally saves the cat.” Read more from Gillian about the David Fincher-directed movie in the article from word & film.
