Charlize Theron Goes To Dark Places In Gillian Flynn's Next Movie

This French trailer for the upcoming film adaptation of Gillian Flynn's novel Dark Places is whetting our appetite for the Charlize Theron thriller. Theron stars as Libby Day, a woman understandably tormented by the murder of her family when she was young. Little Libby points the finger at her older brother Ben as the culprit, and he's been locked up ever since.

As if things couldn't get any more screwed up, Libby is approached by a fellow who's part of a group that "investigates" unsolved cases. Lyle, played by Nicholas Hoult, and other members of his "Kill Club" are certain there's more to the case than meets the eye.

Dark Places premieres in Paris on March 30 and opens in theatres there on April 8 (director Gilles Paquet-Brenner is French). No U.S. release date has been set. But, seeing as Gone Girl made oodles of money and snagged all sorts of awards for director David Finch, Flynn, and star Rosamund Pike, we're assuming Dark Places will soon be on the fast track to U.S. theaters. Until then, you have a little extra time to catch up on your reading. [Vulture]
