Ben Affleck's new film, Gone Girl, is to open the New York Film Festival.

David Fincher's big-screen adaptation of Gillian Flynn's thriller, also starring Rosamund Pike and Neil Patrick Harris, will kick off the event on September 26, said the Hollywood Reporter.

Ben and Rosamund lead the cast of Gone Girl as Nick and Amy Dunne, whose marriage is rocked after the latter disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary.

How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick portrays Desi Collings, an ex-boyfriend from Amy's past.

Gillian wrote the screenplay for the film, which will have a reworked ending to the novel.

Gone Girl will open in UK cinemas on October 3.
