12 Book-to-Movie Adaptations With Drastic Plot Changes
Obviously when a book is made into a movie, there are going to be some changes. However, there are some book-to-big screen adaptations that shift things around entirely, making it seem like a brand new concept.
This can certainly be said for the upcoming movie adaptation of Gillian Flynn's popular book, Gone Girl. Though the movie isn't hitting theaters until October, there have been reports that the whole third act of the Ben Affleck flick is drastically different from the book. However, we'll have to wait and see the movie when it actually comes out to be the judge of that.
Either way, this wouldn't be the first time film makers took creative liberty and decided to shake things up on the big screen. Oh and just a heads up, the gallery is going to have some major SPOILERS, so you've been warned. To see some of the most drastic plot changes, click through the gallery below!
