The first image has been released from Gilles Paquet-Brenner‘s adaptation of Gillian Flynn‘s best-selling novel Dark Places.  The film stars Charlize Theron as Libby Day, a woman who, at the age of 7, survives the massacre of her family and testifies against her brother as the murderer.  Years later, when confronted by a group obsessed with solving notorious crimes, Libby is forced to confront the truth about what she saw—or didn’t see.  Producer and co-financier Exclusive Media shopped the film around the American Film Market and has completed all major sales.

Hit the jump to check out the image.  The outstanding cast also includes Nicholas Hoult, Chloë Grace Moretz, Christina Hendricks, and Drea de Matteo.  If Dark Places is released in 2014, it will join the other high-profile adaptation of a Gillian Flynn novel—David Fincher‘s Gone Girl, which opens on October 3rd.

Tye Sheridan Talks David Gordon Green’s JOE, Working with Terrence Malick on TREE OF LIFE, DARK PLACES, THE FORGER, and More at TIFF

Since George Washington hit theaters in 2000, director David Gordon Green has impressed me again and again.  Whether tackling a big studio comedy like Pineapple Express, an intimate drama like Snow Angels, or outrageous characters like Kenny Powers on HBO’s Eastbound & Down, Green has repeatedly shown he’s a gifted filmmaker that can handle any subject.  In his new film, Joe, which just premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, he tackles the story of an ex-con (Nicolas Cage) who becomes a role model to 15-year-old Gary Jones (Tye Sheridan), the oldest child of a homeless family led by a drunk father.  Loaded with fantastic performances (including some incredible work by non-professional actors), Joe really impressed me at this year’s festival.

Shortly after the premiere I got to sit down with Sheridan for an exclusive video interview.  He talked about being at TIFF, making Joe, working with Gordon Green and Cage, working with non-actors, the way he prepares for a role, what it was like to work for Terrence Malick on The Tree of Life, what he collects, future projects like Dark Places and The Forger, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch.

Though she appears in the upcoming Jack Kerouac adaptation On the Road, Amy Adams is gearing up to tackle an adaptation of a different sort.  Variety reports that Adams is in negotiations to star in an adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s novel Dark Places.  The film centers on a woman who, at the age of 7, “survives the massacre of her family and testifies against her brother as the murderer. Twenty-five years later, a group obsessed with solving notorious crimes confronts her with questions about the crime.”  Gilles Paquet-Brenner (Sarah Keys) wrote the script and is set to direct the decidedly dark drama.

Adams recently wrapped the Superman reboot Man of Steel as well as the baseball drama Trouble with the Curve with Clint Eastwood.  She’s currently shooting Spike Jonze’s untitled next film, and she’ll be seen this fall in Paul Thomas Anderson’s long-awaited The Master.  Hit the jump for a synopsis of Dark Places.
