Charlize Theron Stars In Dark Places Trailer [Watch]

Charlize Theron will be seen next in Dark Places, another dark and twisted film based on a novel from Gillian Flynn. Based on the trailer, this film promises to be just as, if not more creepy, than the 2014 hit Gone Girl.

In addition to Gone Girl, which has received the most widespread appeal so far due to its recent film release, Flynn has written Dark Places and Sharp Objects, which is set to become a TV show.

Dark Places centers around Libby Day, a woman who somehow survived the brutal killing of her family when she was young. She is forced to confront the dark secrets of her past when she is approached by Lyle, a man involved with a secret society that is obsessed with analyzing and solving mysterious crimes.

Libby’s brother Ben was sent to prison for the crime, and she grew up thinking that he was responsible, but after discovering the group that call themselves “The Kill Club,” and how they feel about the crime, she begins to question what she believed to be true.

Charlize Theron will play Libby, while Lyle is portrayed by Nicholas Hoult, known for his role in About A Boy and the recent X-Men films. Other members of the cast include Chloe Grace Moretz, Christina Hendricks, Corey Stoll, and Tye Sheridan.

The film is written and directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner. He has worked primarily on lesser known French films up until now, although he did direct the 2010 film Sarah’s Key, which starred Kristen Scott Thomas.

Gillian Flynn’s last book adaptation was a huge hit with audiences, but could Dark Places have similar success when it is released? Strangely enough, the film is set to be released in France on April 8th, but there is still no release date set for the United States.

Charlize Theron has certainly prove that she can play dark and troubled characters before such as when played a serial killer in Monster, and could make this another hit film. Do you plan to see her in Dark Places?
