Charlize Theron heads to Dark Places

Feb 5 2013, 10:26am CST | by

Charlize Theron is in talks to star in crime thriller 'Dark Places'.

The Oscar-winning actress has entered negotiations to play troubled protagonist Libby Day in Gilles Paquet-Brenner's adaptation of Gillian Flynn's bestseller, a part which was previously expected to go to Amy Adams.

Deadline reports that director Gilles has also written the script, which centres around emotional damaged Libby, whose family was slaughtered in a horrific Satanic killing when she was seven.

Her older brother ended up in jail after she testified against him, but 25 years on she becomes involved with a group obsessed with notorious crimes and begins to unravel the truth about the fateful day.

Gillian originally commented that she ''couldn't dream of someone more fantastic'' than Amy for the role, but 'The Master' actress has now dropped out.

The author's dark novels are proving extremely popular as it emerged last month 'The Social Network' filmmaker David Fincher is in talks to direct a big screen adaptation of her latest book, 'Gone Girl'.

Her first novel, 'Sharp Objects', was previously optioned by Alliance with Jason Blum on board to produce.

Charlize is also discussing a role in Seth MacFarlane's new project, 'A Million Ways To Die', a spoof western comedy resembling the classic 'Blazing Saddles'.

See Seth MacFarlane Explain Why He Made 'A Million Ways to Die In The West'

Oct 10 2014 1:04pm CDT | Source: movies.com

If going off the trailers and title alone, A Million Ways to Die in the West looked like it was about how living on the American frontier in the 1800s meant that death lurked around every corner and how the most innocent action could get you killed. And there's plenty of jokes in the movie about that, but the heart of it is actually a bit sweeter. It's essentially about a bumbling, complaining man (Seth MacFarlane) finding and falling f ...

A Million Ways to Die in the West DVD Review: Does It Top Ted?

Oct 8 2014 3:53pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

Seth MacFarlane had an out-of-nowhere hit with Ted a few years back and he followed that up with a western comedy, A Million Ways to Die in the West. We rather enjoyed the film, as you can tell from our theatrical A Million Ways to Die in the West review, but it didn’t quite hit a Ted-like mark with audiences. Perhaps it was because of the uber-competitive summer movie season? Well, now A Million Ways to Die in the Wes ...
