Aside from it’s intriguing premise, “Dark Places” has captured my attention for it’s stable of up-and-coming Hollywood talents. Among them include some incredibly talented actresses who are certainly in demand. Charlize Theron was the first to be brought on as the lead protagonist Libby Day, then Chloe Moretz signed up shortly after. Now we have news of another rising star who has joined the project.
Christina Hendricks, best known for her work on “Mad Men”, has joined the cast to play Krissi Cates. According to Empire Online, Krissi is “a down-on-her-luck stripper who has a history of accusing Libby Day’s brother of misdeeds, and is harbouring a secret about what really happened to the Day clan.”
”Dark Places” is based off a book written by Gillian Flynn about Libby Day (Charlize Theron) a woman who is forced to re-face the twenty year old massacre of her family when a group known as the “Kill Club” begins to investigate what really happened the day Libby’s family was murdered. The film is currently being written and directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner, a French-director whose previous films include “Sarah’s Key” and “Walled In.”
