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.

According to TMZ, writer Leslie Weller is suing the 41-year-old star, along with the flick's director David Fincher and the author of the book on which the movie was based Gillian Flynn, claiming they stole the story from a 2005 screenplay she wrote called Out of the Blue.

Author Gillian Flynn and director David Fincher are also being sued.

Weller goes on. both her screenplay and the novel are structured in the same way - first, everyone sympathizes with the wife, and then you start to despise the husband, but things turn and by the end, you despise them both.

Citing multiple plot similarities, Weller says the premise of a crumbling marriage, a morally ambiguous husband and subsequent plot twist involving a wife's quest for revenge, were directly lifted from her original work. It featured actors Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, and Tyler Perry.
