First Look: Two Beautiful Leads in 'Beautiful Creatures' Adaptation
While it looks like Hunger Games will likely take the spot of Twilight once it wraps up this fall, Warner Bros is putting in their bid for the female-centric young adult genre in the form Beautiful Creatures. The "supernatural star-crossed romance" (ugh already) is based on Margaret Stohl's popular 2009 novel and is currently shooting right now, under the direction of Richard LaGravenese. EW.com has published a first look at the two young leads - Alden Ehrenreich (Tetro, Twixt, Stoker) and newcomer Alice Englert, who play star-crossed lovers Ethan and Alice down in South Carolina. Oh boy, this is going to get steamy quick.
Here's their new first look below, a quick photo of the two of them in a rather dreamy setting. How lovely!
Based on the first novel in the five-book Caster Chronicles series, Beautiful Creatures is written & directed by Richard LaGravenese (Living Out Loud, Freedom Writers, P.S. I Love You). Alden Ehrenreich plays Ethan, Alice Englert plays Lena, including Emmy Rossum, Jeremy Irons, Emma Thompson, Viola Davis and Kyle Gallner. In the first book, Ethan meets and "becomes bewitched" by Lena Duchannes, a 16-year-old whose family moves to his South Carolina town. The two must confront a curse that's haunted her family for generations as she comes to grips with her own powers. "Beautiful Creatures is a delicious southern Gothic that charms you from the first page, drawing you into a dark world of magic and mystery." Arriving 2013.
