Trading Mad Men for bereaved women, Christina Hendricks is the latest addition to the cast of Gilles Paquet-Brenner's Dark Places. She joins Charlize Theron, Chloe Moretz, Corey Stoll, Andrea Roth and Nicholas Hoult, in the thriller based on Gillian Flynn's bestselling thriller.

Book and film are about Libby Day (Theron) whose family was murdered when she was a young girl. At the time she accused her brother (Stoll), even testifying against him in court, but 25 years later the facts suddenly don't seem so clear. Approached by Hoult's vigilante sleuths the Kill Club, she's forced to reevaluate her original version of events.

Hendricks is playing Krissi Cates, a down-on-her-luck stripper who also has a history of accusing Stoll's character of misdeeds, and is harbouring a secret about what really happened to the Day clan.

These are busy times for Hendricks, who's also in God's Pocket (directed by her Mad Men co-star John Slattery) and How To Catch A Monster (from her Drive leading man Ryan Gosling). Dark Places is currently in pre-production, with a US release pencilled in for September next year. Gillian Flynn's novel is published in the UK by Phoenix, if you want to prepare in the meantime.
