So this is happening. Empire Online reports:
Trading Mad Men for bereaved women, Christina Hendricks is the latest addition to the cast of Gilles Paquet-Brenner's Dark Places. She joins Charlize Theron, Chloe Moretz, Corey Stoll, Andrea Roth and Nicholas Hoult, in the thriller based on Gillian Flynn's bestselling thriller.
Book and film are about Libby Day (Theron) whose family was murdered when she was a young girl. At the time she accused her brother (Stoll), even testifying against him in court, but 25 years later the facts suddenly don't seem so clear. Approached by Hoult's vigilante sleuths the Kill Club, she's forced to reevaluate her original version of events.
Hendricks is playing Krissi Cates, a down-on-her-luck stripper who also has a history of accusing Stoll's character of misdeeds, and is harbouring a secret about what really happened to the Day clan.
Has there ever been an up-on-her-luck on stripper? I want to see that movie. Anyway before you inseminate your keyboard, please understand that Christina Hendricks will be playing a stripper much in the same way Jennifer Aniston would play a stripper. All the trailers will show you Hendricks grinding on a pole in a bra then when you see the movie, you'll find out that the scene is only 20 seconds longer and that's the techical "stripper"part. The rest is here in walking around in runny mascara trying to reconnect with her dad or get her kid out of protective services because all screenplay strippers spend all their money on blow and don't have enough left over for Lunchables and Hot Pockets for the kids.
