Nicholas Hoult (pictured above; Warm Bodies, Jack The Giant Slayer) will be joining the new film from writer/director Gilles Paquet-Brenner (Sarah’s Key), Dark Places, based on the book by Gillian Flynn. He joins Charlize Theron and Chloe Moretz. He’ll play Lyle, “An awkward young man, Lyle is the treasurer of the Kill Club, the group investigating the case of the killing of the family of Libby Day (Theron).”
In the film, “Theron will 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.”
Next up is the remake of The Town That Dreaded Sundown, which adds Addison Timlin (pictured inside; “Californication”) to the cast. Per Deadline, she’ll play, “Jami, a girl who survives a copycat massacre at the film’s annual tribute screening and sets out to solve the mystery of who’s recreating the unsolved Sackhead murders, using clues from her own past.”
Ryan Murphy is producing with Jason Blum. “American Horror Story” director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon is handling the reigns.
