Charlize Theron

- Charlize Theron will star in and produce a film adaptation of Gillian Flynn's bestseller "Dark Places." It will be written and directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner ("Sarah's Key"). The film centers on Libby Day (Theron), who as a very young girl survives the massacre of her family and testifies against her brother as the murderer. She is then asked to revisit the event 25 years later, when a group obsessed with infamous crimes approaches her about the case details. Exclusive Media is shopping "Dark Places" in Berlin. (Meanwhile, director David Fincher is circling another Gillian Flynn adaptation, "Gone Girl.")

- IM Global has unveiled the Tom Hardy thriller "Locke," which the company will finance. Steven Knight ("Eastern Promises," "Dirty Pretty Things") will direct from his original screenplay, and the film will be shot in real time, following a man's 90-minute race to save his life after he receives an ominous phone call. Production will begin later this month in London.

- Participant Media has entered into a five-year agreement to develop and co-finance Spanish-language films with three premiere Latin American production companies: Mexico's Canana (the banner of Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, which has produced "Sin Nombre" and "Miss Bala"), Chile's Fabula ("No") and Columbia's Dynamo ("Undertow"). Ten to twelve films are expected to be produced under the terms of the deal. (Check out our TOH! interviews with Luna here and Bernal here.)
