Did Jon Hamm's Mad Men Contract Prevent Him From Playing the Lead Role in Gone Girl?

According to a report from Page Six, Hamm was up for the starring role in the film adaptation of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl, but was contractually obligated to his role as Don Draper in Mad Men, which creator Matt Weiner allegedly wouldn't let him out of to play the suspected murderer.

"Matt would not let Jon out of his contract to do Gone Girl. Jon was really upset about it at the time—and is still upset, because he's thinking about the future of his career as Mad Men comes to a close," a source dished to the New York Post column.
