Nicholas Hoult and Chloe Moretz to Co-Star in ‘Dark Places’
According to Deadline, Nick will “play a character named Lyle in the adaptation of the Gillian Flynn mystery novel about a woman forced to re-face the massacre of her family over two decades before. An awkward young man, Lyle is the treasurer of the Kill Club, the group investigating the case of the killing of the family of Libby Day (Theron).” Chloe will play a character named Diondra.
After wrapping up promotions for Warm Bodies and Jack the Giant Slayer, Nick signed on for dystopian thriller Young Ones, which is set for theater debut the same year as his other films, Mad Max: Fury Road and X-Men: Days of Future Past. Meanwhile, Chloe also has her work cut out for her, starring in the reboot of Carrie, premiering just before Halloween 2013, the sequel to Kick-Ass this summer, and more than a handful of other projects. We’re telling ya, she’s gotta be one of the hardest working 16-year-olds out there.
