It looks like Hollywood loves Gillian Flynn, and fans of the author have a lot to look forward to in 2014. Adaptations of two of her books are on the way, with David Fincher tackling "Gone Girl" and "Sarah's Key" helmer Gilles Paquet-Brenner taking on "Dark Places." And the latter is rounding out its already pretty stellar cast as it gears up to start rolling in front of cameras.

It looks like Hollywood loves Gillian Flynn, and fans of the author have a lot to look forward to in 2014. Adaptations of two of her books are on the way, with David Fincher tackling "Gone Girl" and "Sarah's Key" helmer Gilles Paquet-Brenner taking on "Dark Places." And the latter is rounding out its already pretty stellar cast as it gears up to start rolling in front of cameras.

"House Of Cards" star Corey Stoll and rising "Mud" and "The Tree Of Life" actor Tye Sheridan have boarded the film, joining Charlize Theron, Chloe Moretz and Nicholas Hoult. Adapted by Paquet-Brenner as well, the story centers on Libby Day (Theron), who as a teenager witnesses her family get murdered, and testifies against her brother when he is tried for the crime. 25 years later, Libby is brought before the secretive, crime-solving Kill Club who want to uncover the truth about what happened. According to The Tracking Board, Stoll will take the role of the accused brother (they also note that Samantha Morton is in the mix for a part, but this hasn't been confirmed yet it seems), with Sheridan playing "the 16-year-old brother who is accused of molesting a group of girls and murdering his family before he’s sentenced to life in prison." Lastly, Sterling Jerins will play the younger Theron in the part of Libby.

No word yet on when production begins, but it looks like it'll be happening soon. [Variety/Deadline]
