Will there be a sequel to Gone Girl?
In a chat with People magazine to commemorate the 10th anniversary, author Gillian Flynn conveyed interest in working on a second movie to the book. “I would say I’m a little more sure than never-say-never,” Flynn confessed to the People’s magazine of the notion of writing a continuation novel. “I think I would be surprised if I didn’t, to be honest. But don’t hold me to it.” What the sequel would implicate, Flynn set up a tale opening “in real-time,” focusing on Nick and Amy Dunne as “the true nuclear-bomb family.”
Flynn also told to New York Daily News, “There could be a sequel at some point if everyone is game to get the gang back together,” Flynn explained. “It could be really fun a few years from now to pick it up and see what those crazy Dunnes are up to a few years down the road and if they got on — not well I don’t think.”

Gone Girl 2 plot: What is the expected storyline?
Flynn teased on how the novel ends although it’s not clear if it’s about the sequel. She revealed to People: “I will fully admit that, now that the child that would’ve been born 10 years ago, once that child hits 13, 14 in real-time, I may indeed want to go back in and update and play around with what the hell would’ve happened once Amy was a mom,” Flynn tells. “Because that is the stuff of wonderful gothic nightmares, I think.”
“I would say I’m a little more sure than never-say-never. I think I would be surprised if I didn’t, to be honest. But don’t hold me to it,” she asserts of jotting down a sequel. “I do think it’d be fun to play in real time, and I would be ready by then to revisit them. I’d have enough space from Nick and Amy to go back in and get what that’s like as the true nuclear-bomb family.”
