- BEAUTIFUL CREATURES
Academy Award-winning actor Jeremy Irons is in final negotiations to join the cast of the supernatural love story Beautiful Creatures, based on the New York Times best selling novel of the same name – the first of a hugely popular series written by authors Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.
Irons is the most recent in a flurry of casting announcements, joining Viola Davis (Amma), Emma Thompson (Mrs. Lincoln/Sarafine), Emmy Rossum (Ridley), Thomas Mann (Link) and relative newcomers Jack O’Connell (Ethan) and Alice Englert (Lena).
Irons will play the role of Macon Ravenwood, Lena’s mysterious and recluse uncle.
A hauntingly intense coming of age story set in the South, Beautiful Creatures is about two star-crossed teenage lovers, Ethan, a local boy, and a mysterious new girl, Lena, who uncover dark secrets about their families, their history and their town.
Filming begins next month in and around New Orleans with Richard LaGravenese (P.S. I Love You) directing from his adaptation.
