Reese Witherspoon sued over Gone Girl

Los Angeles Dec 7 (IANS) Actress Reese Witherspoon has been sued by a writer who claims "Gone Girl" is a rip-off of a screenplay penned by her.



Witherspoon received various awards for producing the 2014 film "Gone Girl".

A screenplay writer named Leslie Weller has claimed she wrote a screenplay called "Out of the Blue" back in 2005 and sent a copy of the same to a script consultant. That allowed someone to lift her work.

She says the book "Gone Girl" which came out in 2012 is a rip off of her screenplay reports tmz.com.

Mentioning similarities between the book and her screenplay Weller said they both focus on a married couple s relationship where the husband and wife are slowly drifting apart.

"They both contain a key twist where the wife is not the nice normal and somewhat naive housewife and is in fact a psychopath who sets up her husband " she said.

Besides Witherspoon Weller is also suing the book s author Gillian Flynn and the movie s director David Fincher.
