Based on the book...
Deadline reports that Christina Hendricks has joined the cast of Dark Places. The film is an adaptation of Gillian Flynn's novel about class, rural America, poverty, opportunism and Satanic cults. The cast already includes Charlize Theron, Chloe Moretz, Corey Stoll and Andrea Roth. Hendricks will play the older Krissi Cates character. Gilles Paquet-Brenner will direct.
In the book, Krissi is a barely-getting-by stripper who had accused by Ben Day (Stoll) decades before of being a child molester and some other very serious misdeeds. Krissi has been haunted by a secret from her past that could have great implications for the jailed Ben and his sister Libby (Theron).
Hendricks can next be seen in How to Catch A Monster, which is directed by Ryan Gosling and also stars former Doctor Who star Matt Smith and Eva Mendes. She will also be in God's Pocket, which is directed by her Mad Men co-star and stars Phillip Seymour Hoffman, John Turturro. Richard Jenkins and Eddie McGee.
