Dark Places Casts Christina Hendricks, Corey Stoll, & More

Christina HendricksThe big-screen adaptation of Dark Places by Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl), already set to star Charlize Theron, Chloe Moretz, and Nicholas Hoult, seems to be rounding out its casting. According to a Deadline exclusive, Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) has joined the cast, along with Corey Stoll, Andrea Roth, and Tye Sheridan. Here’s the publisher’s description of the novel:

Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in “The Satan Sacrifice” of Kinnakee, Kansas.” She survived—and famously testified that her fifteen-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, the Kill Club—a secret secret society obsessed with notorious crimes—locates Libby and pumps her for details. They hope to discover proof that may free Ben. Libby hopes to turn a profit off her tragic history: She’ll reconnect with the players from that night and report her findings to the club—for a fee. As Libby’s search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned Oklahoma tourist towns, the unimaginable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she started—on the run from a killer.
