Thriller rounds out cast as production kicks off.
‘Dark Places,’ the film adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s 2009 best-selling novel starring Charlize Theron (‘Snow White And The Huntsmen,’ ‘Prometheus,’ ‘Monster’), Nicholas Hoult (‘X-Men: First Class,’ ‘Jack The Giant Slayer,’ ‘About A Boy’ ), Chloë Grace Moretz (‘Carrie,’ ‘Kick-Ass,’ ‘Hugo’), Christina Hendricks (‘Mad Men,’ ‘Drive’), Corey Stoll (‘House Of Cards,’ ‘Midnight In Paris’), and Tye Sheridan (‘Joe,’ ‘Mud,’ ‘Tree Of Life’), has commenced principal photography this week on location in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Written and directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner (‘Sarah’s Key’), ‘Dark Places’ tells the story of Libby Day (Theron), a woman who, at the age of 7, survives the massacre of her family and testifies against her brother as the murderer. Twenty-five years later, a group obsessed with solving notorious crimes confronts her with questions about the horrific event. Told in a series of flashbacks from the points of view of Libby’s mother, Patty, and her brother, Ben, Libby is forced to revisit that fateful day and begins to question what exactly she saw – or didn’t see – the night of the tragedy.
Rounding out the cast are supporting cast members Sterling Jerins (‘The Conjuring,’ ‘World War Z’) who will play Young Libby and Shannon Kook (‘The Conjuring’).
‘Dark Places’ is being co-financed by Exclusive Media and Cuatro Plus Films. Exclusive Media is producing with Stephane Marsil of Hugo Films, Charlize Theron’s Denver and Delilah Productions partners Beth Kono and AJ Dix; and Mandalay’s Cathy Schulman and Matt Rhodes. Exclusive Media’s Matt Jackson will produce, with the company’s Guy East, Nigel Sinclair, Tobin Armbrust and Alex Brunner Executive Producing. Peter Safran will also serve as an Executive Producer.
