Here’s a film we haven’t heard about in some time. “Dark Places” originally started making casting announcements earlier this year when they revealed that Chloe Moretz and Nicholas Hoult had joined Charlize Theron in the production. Then, just when it seemed like things were picking up, the news stopped coming.
However, now we finally have a new casting announcement. This time in the form of a young newcomer to Hollywood. Tye Sheridan, who recently starred in “Mud”, has joined the cast as Ben: a “16-year old accused of molesting young girls and murdering his family before being sentenced to life in prison.”
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.” “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.
