Emmy Award winning and Golden Globe nominee Drea de Matteo (“The Sopranos,” “Sons of Anarchy”) has joined the cast of drama Dark Places, it was announced today by co-financiers and co-producers Exclusive Media.

“In the hands of such an accomplished team of creative filmmakers, the cast for ‘Dark Places’ is shaping up to be a tour de force line up of exceptional performers who will bring a wealth of appeal to an already distinguished project. We could not be happier,” said the film’s producers Nigel Sinclair and Guy East.

Written and directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner (Sarah’s Key), Dark Places is co-financed by Exclusive Media and Cuatro Plus Films. Exclusive Media is producing with Stephane Marsil of Hugo Films, Charlize Theron’s Denver and Delilah Productions partners Beth Kono and AJ Dix; and Mandalay’s Cathy Schulman and Matt Rhodes.

Dark Places tells the story of Libby Day (Theron), a woman who, at the age of 7, survives the massacre of her family and testifies against her brother as the murderer. Twenty-five years later, a group obsessed with solving notorious crimes confronts her with questions about the horrific event. Told in a series of flashbacks from the points of view of Libby’s mother, Patty, and her brother, Ben, Libby is forced to revisit that fateful day and begins to question what exactly she saw – or didn’t see – the night of the tragedy.
