Is Amy Adams taking her career to Dark Places?

May. 16, 2012by: Alejandro Stepenberg

Dark Places book coverThis news involves a group called The Kill Club, the words "sacrifice" and "Satan" together, mutilation, a very good title, and a mystery surrounding a murderer. And no, I'm not talking about Chuck Palahniuk's day at the beach, but rather an adaptation of a novel by Gillian Flynn called DARK PLACES with Amy Adams currently in talks to star. 

Which is the best part about the news by far, and that's saying something considering everything I've mentioned thus far.

Plot synopsis: Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in “The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas.”  As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived–and famously testified that her fifteen-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who’ve long forgotten her.   The Kill Club is a macabre secret society obsessed with notorious crimes. When they locate Libby and pump her for details–proof they hope may free Ben–Libby hatches a plan to profit off her tragic history. For a fee, she’ll reconnect with the players from that night and report her findings to the club… and maybe she’ll admit her testimony wasn’t so solid after all.

As Libby’s search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned Oklahoma tourist towns, the narrative flashes back to January 2, 1985. The events of that day are relayed through the eyes of Libby’s doomed family members–including Ben, a loner whose rage over his shiftless father and their failing farm have driven him into a disturbing friendship with the new girl in town. Piece by piece, the unimaginable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she started–on the run from a killer.
.

I think Adams could easily knock this shit so far out of the park that it would end up orbiting the Earth, so let's hope she gets the chance to prove it. 

DARK PLACES will be directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner (SARAH'S KEY) from his own script.

Extra Tidbit: Let's put this out on the stoop and see if the cat licks it up: Amy Adams and Isla Fisher together. Specifically, in something very much like Brian De Palma's upcoming flick PASSION.

Awwwwww

I was really, REALLY REALLY hoping this was announcing a movie version of the ridiculously absurd show "Garth Marenghi's Dark Place"

This sounds okay, but it also sounds pretty formula-ish. Not nearly on the level of Dark Place.

The Plot

That's quite a mouthful. I literally have no idea if it sounds interesting, but I like Adams so I'll keep it on my radar.
