dark places movie

Gillian Flynn was a star author before last year’s release of Gone Girl, directed by David Fincher. But that adaptation of Flynn’s novel elevated her name significantly. Not only did she script Gone Girl, but she and Fincher have teamed for an HBO remake of UK series Utopia, and for a new version of Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train. Her book Sharp Objects is also being adapted for television. And then there’s the Dark Places film, which stars Charlize Theron, and will be released in France this spring. Check out a poster for Dark Places below, which for many will be your first look at the film.

The Playlist got this French poster for Dark Places; the film will premiere in Paris on March 30, then open in France on April 8.

Dark Places also stars Corey StollTye SheridanChloe Grace Moretz, Nicholas Hoult, Sterling Jerins and Christina Hendricks, which is a pretty incredible cast. So why have we heard so little about the movie, which was directed Gilles Paquet-Brenner (Sarah’s Key)? Great question, but that has us worried about the outcome.

Dark Places has Theron playing Libby Day, who witnessed the murder of her family as a teen, and as an adult has to confront the events of that period when a secret society called the Kill Club becomes interested in her case.

Here’s the poster. We’ll pass on word when the film gets a US release date.
