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.
