Tyler Perry has joined the cast of Gone Girl, EW has confirmed.

Perry will play defense attorney Tanner Bolt, the man who reps Nick (Ben Affleck) after his wife disappears. Deadline, which first reported the news, also says Kim Dickens and Patrick Fugit are nearing deals to star as the detectives investigating Amy’s (Rosamund Pike) case. Neil Patrick Harris is currently in talks to play Amy’s old boyfriend, Desi Collings, EW has confirmed.

The David Fincher-directed thriller, based on Gillian Flynn’s popular novel of the same name, centers around the disappearance of Amy and the case against her prime-suspect husband, Nick. Reese Witherspoon optioned the novel in 2012 and is producing the film, which is set to begin production later this month.
