"I want to make a date movie that results in at least 15 million divorces… I want it to work and live in the area of slightly tongue-in-cheek, but also morally repelente"
- David Fincher, director
"I actually think this is the perfect date movie, not because I think it’ll result in divorce - I think that’s just David’s fantasy - but because it’s the kind of movie that a husband and wife could talk about afterwards. I think a man and a woman would have different takes on what happens. The last time I was in a movie that I thought polarised men and women in an interesting way was Chasing Amy. That was quite some time ago."
- Ben Affleck, actor
"That aspect of marriage as a con game, or whatever. The idea that we perform a sort of ideal version of ourselves that the other person wants. We perhaps belie our true nature in order to perform to the ideal. David and I talked a lot about living in an age of rampant narcissism."
- Rosamund Pike, actress
"I joke about my husband being the muse for the most toxic marriage in the world, because if I’d been married to a less secure man, it wouldn’t have gotten written. He said to me over and over, ‘Write it, don’t censor yourself, don’t think about the outside world and we’ll figure out the rest later.’ He was very responsible for this awful book about marriage!"
- Gillian Flynn, writer
"I want to make a date movie that results in at least 15 million divorces… I want it to work and live in the area of slightly tongue-in-cheek, but also morally repellent"
