DARK PLACES is an upcoming mystery film directed and written by Gilles Paquet-Brenner (Sarah’s Key), based on the novel of the same name written by Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl). The film stars Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Christina Hendricks.
Set in a farming town in Kansas, DARK PLACES follows Libby Day (Theron), the only surviving witness of a horrific massacre that took her mother and sisters. Believing the slaughter to be the work of a Satanic cult, Libby testifies in court against her own brother. 25 years after the murder, she remains haunted by the gruesome violence of her past when she meets a group of amateur investigators who call themselves “The Kill Club”. Looking to satisfy their morbid curiosity, the group begins their own inquiry about the case, believing Libby’s brother is innocent. In order to help them, Libby must unearth painful memories of the event and learn that her past may not be what it seems.
