It has been a couple of months since we last heard anything about the film adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s best-selling novel DARK PLACES but today we just got word that Emmy Award winning and Golden Globe nominee Drea de Matteo ("The Sopranos", "Sons of Anarchy") has joined the drama that features one good looking cast. Matteo (above) will play the character of Krissi Cates in the film. I haven't read the novel but I'm eager to check this one out because the film version sounds like it's going to be pretty damn dark and you really can't go wrong when Charlize Theron is leading the pack.
Here is what you can expect from the flick:
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.
Written and directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner (SARAH’S KEY), DARK PLACES stars Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Chloë Grace Moretz, Christina Hendricks, Corey Stoll, Drea de Matteo and Tye Sheridan. The film is currently shooting on location in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Christina Hendricks also stars in DARK PLACES
