And the cast for Dark Places continues to expand in some really good directions as Warm Bodies and Jack the Giant Slayer star Nicholas Hoult is looking to keep walking on the genre side!
Deadline is reporting that Nicholas Hoult (pictured) has joined the cast of Dark Places with Charlize Theron. The actor would play a character named Lyle in the adaptation of the Gillian Flynn mystery novel about a woman forced to re-face the massacre of her family over two decades before. 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). Chloe Moretz is in talks to join the Exclusive Media and Denver and Delilah Productions produced film too.
Gilles Paquet-Brenner is writing and directing the adaptation of the 2009 book.

The book was also shortlisted for the Crime Writers’ Association Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award and won the Dark Scribe Magazine Black Quill Award for Dark Genre Novel of the Year.
