Dark Places may indeed be filming now in Louisiana, but that doesn’t mean the casting process is complete. THR reports that “Sopranos” star Drea De Matteo has signed on to play stripper Krissi Cates, a character who holds clues to the murders.
Dark Places, the film adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s best-selling novel, stars Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron (Promethues, Monster), Nicholas Hoult (Warm Bodies, X-Men: First Class), Chloë Grace Moretz (Carrie, Kick-Ass, Let Me In), Emmy Award-nominated actress Christina Hendricks (“Mad Men,” Drive), Corey Stoll (“House of Cards”), and Tye Sheridan (Mud, Tree of Life).
Rounding out the cast alongside Theron, Hoult, Moretz, Hendricks, Stoll, and Sheridan are supporting cast members Sterling Jerins (World War Z, The Conjuring), who will play young Libby, and Shannon Kook (The Conjuring).
Dark Places is written and directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner (Sarah’s Key) and is co-financed by Exclusive Media and Cuatro Plus Films. Exclusive Media is producing with Stephane Marsil of Hugo Films; Charlize Theron’s Denver and Delilah Productions partners Beth Kono and AJ Dix; and Mandalay’s Cathy Schulman and Matt Rhodes. Exclusive Media’s Matt Jackson produces, with the company’s Guy East, Nigel Sinclair, Tobin Armbrust, and Alex Brunner executive producing. Peter Safran also serves as an executive producer.
Dark Places tells the story of Libby Day (Theron), 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 horrific event. Told in a series of flashbacks from the points of view of Libby’s mother, Patty, and her brother, Ben, Libby is forced to revisit that fateful day and begins to question what exactly she saw – or didn’t see – the night of the tragedy.
