First Look At Charlize Theron In Dark Places

David Fincher's Gone Girl isn't the only Gillian Flynn novel heading for the screen. The New Yorker's more recent cult thriller Dark Places is also underway with Frenchman Gilles Paquet-Brenner behind the camera and Charlize Theron in front of it. A first look at Theron's character, Libby Day, has hit the internet. Click below for a closer look.


The plot sees the seven year-old Day witness the murder of her family, seemingly the work of a Satanic cult, and testify against her own brother (Corey Stoll) as the murderer. Fast forward 25 years and the grown-up Day (Theron) has to face some unpleasant facts about the case. Approached by Nicholas Hoult's vigilante sleuths the Kill Club, she's forced to re-evaluate her original version of events.

Also aboard this one are Chloë Grace Moretz, Christina Hendricks and Drea de Matteo. It's shooting in Shreveport, Louisiana and is scheduled for US release on September 1, 2014.
