This winter, Warner Bros. will unleash what may just be the “next big thing” with BEAUTIFUL CREATURES, a romantic fantasy based on the series of hugely successful young adult novels by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. Directed by Richard LaGravenese, the film features a cast filled with screen veterans (Emma Thompson, Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis) and young blood (Alden Ehrenreich, Alice Englert, Thomas Mann).
Described as “a supernatural love story”, BEAUTIFUL CREATURES is set in the South and tells the tale of two star-crossed lovers: Ethan (Alden Ehrenreich), a young man longing to escape his small town, and Lena (Alice Englert), a mysterious new girl who happens to belong to a family of “castors,” which is another word for “witches.” Together, they uncover dark secrets about their respective families, their history and their town.
At this past weekend’s New York Comic-Con, I got a brief opportunity to chat about the film with its Oscar-nominated screenwriter-director, Richard LaGravenese (THE FISHER KING, THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY). Read on: HERE
