Hoult has joined the fast-developing "Dark Places" starring Charlize Theron and Chloe Moretz. An adaptation of the novel by best-selling author Gillian Flynn, 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. Hoult will play Lyle, the treasurer of the Kill Club, thus proving that no group, no matter how odd, needs a treasurer.
"Sarah's Key" helmer Gilles Paquet-Brenner is writing and directing and there's no start date yet, and we presume "Dark Places" will have to wait until 'Future Past' wraps. [Deadline]
