Gone Girl has set up shop in Cape Girardeau and began filming on location in the area today. The shoot is expected to last for the next five weeks, this according to Cean Chaffin, one of the movies producers.

When asked what she thought about filming in Cape Girardeau, Chaffin said “as a place to be, [Cape Girardeau] is wonderful. As for filming locations, it’s turned out to be exactly what we needed. In fact, we are shooting here more days than we planned on because it’s working so well.”
