It looks like Charlize Theron (Prometheus) might – might – be pinch hitting for Amy Adams for writer/director Gilles Paquet-Brenner (Sarah’s Key) in Dark Places, based on the novel by Gillian Flynn.
Per Deadline, “Adams has since fallen out and I understand from myriad sources that Charlize Theron is orbiting the story… Theron’s involvement is not locked, but there is interest on both sides and a deal would involve her producing through her Denver & Delilah with partner Beth Kono.”
In the film “[Theron would play] Libby Day, a woman who, at seven-years old, survived the brutal massacre of her family and testified against her brother as the murderer. Twenty-five years later, the Kill Club, a secret-society obsessed with solving notorious crimes, bring her to question and confront the truth of what took place that day.”
The film’s budget is a modestly reasonable $15 Million and it would start shooting in March.
