'Gone Girl' films in Cape Girardeau

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - It’s not often that Hollywood comes to the Heartland, so when David Fincher came to Cape Girardeau to make a movie, it was a big deal.

Together we watched behind the scenes, hoping for a glimpse of Ben Affleck, Tyler Perry and Rosamund Pike.

The fictional bar featured in the movie opened as a real bar in town.

Eventually, Gone Girl would go on to become a hit with audiences and critics.

Our own Kathy Sweeney got a first-hand look at what it takes to make a major motion picture.
