Last year’s break-out thriller Gone Girl was adapted by Gillian Flynn from her own novel and a second film was made based on her work. The next film adapted from Flynn’s dark novels is Dark Places which stars Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Chloë Moretz, Corey Stoll, Christina Hendricks, and Tye Sheridan. It was written and directed by French filmmaker Gilles Paquet-Brenner.
A woman who survived the brutal killing of her family as a child is forced to confront the events of that day by a secret society obsessed with solving notorious crimes.
The film is said to be even more grim than Gone Girl and could prove another massive hit or also possibly an awards caliber thriller. A French trailer and poster from the film has been released by Mars Distribution (via First Showing).
A U.S. release date for Dark Places has yet to be announced by A24 but it’s likely coming this fall.
Flynn is currently re-teaming with David Fincher on updating a remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers On A Train with Ben Affleck eyeing a lead role.
