Dark Places by Gillian Flynn Will Star Nicholas Hoult & Charlize Theron

charlizeAuthor Gillian Flynn is the Queen of Book Clubs thanks to her three nail-biting crime novels Gone Girl, Dark Places and Sharp Objects. And with two of these getting A-lister fronted movie adaptations, she’s on the verge of becoming a major force in Hollywood. THR reports the recently wrapped Dark Places is lining up international buyers at the American Film Market. This should come as little surprise as Flynn’s books have been bestselling must-reads, and the film–as you can see from the first look image above–stars Academy Award-winner Charlize Theron.

Theron fronts Dark Places as Libby Day, a woman who holds deep emotional and physical scars from a harrowing childhood trauma. When she was just seven years old, her mother and two sisters were murdered in their home. Only she and her fifteen-year-old brother Ben survived. Suspicion naturally fell to her brother, who was a loner with a bad reputation. Libby, who’d lost some of her fingers and toes in making her escape, testified against her brother, who for twenty-five years has been locked away and out of touch.

Libby would let sleeping dogs lie if it weren’t for a desperate need for cash that urges her to investigate her own past to appease a hobbyist group of investigators who call themselves The Kill Club, who believe Ben was falsely convicted. With their significant support, Libby digs back into her past and tries to understand who her mother was, what her brother was going through, and how these fragile bonds led to a murder so heinous it was called “The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas.”

From EW Issue#1294:

Charlize Theron says of the character of Libby, “This is a character who avoids people at all costs — what better way to do it than to put a trucker hat on? And Flynn enthused, “The way she walks, the way she holds herself, the way she looks at you — she’s spectacular.”

How does Flynn know this? She has a cameo in the film. Oh yeah, looks like she’s following in the footsteps of Stan Lee and other big name authors who make appearances in their films.

Rob Corddry Is About to be a ‘BALLER’

corddry__130129053000-275x374 Our favorite comedian, Rob Corddry, has signed on to a new pilot. The actor is set to star opposite Dwayne Johnson in the HBO show, BALLERS.

According to DEADLINE…

Rob Corddry is set to co-star opposite Dwayne Johnson in Ballers, HBO‘s half-hour dramedy pilot, which chronicles the lives of several Miami-based active and retired athletes. Corddry will play former all-pro running back Spencer’s (Johnson) boss, a financial advisor who tries really hard to fit in and who is confident but clueless at interpreting social cues. Peter Berg is directing the pilot, which Johnson is exec producing with Mark Wahlberg and Steve Levinson, and Evan Reilly serves as showrunner.

The great thing is he will be able to continue on Children’s Hospital.
