Last May it was reported that Amy Adams was in talks to star in the thriller Dark Places. Unfortunately negotiations broke down and Adams left the project. Now there’s a new star in the frame, as Deadline reports that Charlize Theron is circling the role.
The movie is based on Gillian Flynn’s novel about a young woman who survived the massacre of her entire family when she was just seven years old, ending up with her testifying in court that her brother was the killer. However, years later the woman is sought by The Kill Club, a secret society that is obsessed with notorious crimes, who want to find out what really happened on that night.
Gilles Paquet-Brenner (Sarah’s Key) is directing from his own screenplay. No production schedule is known at the moment.
