If you thought Supernatural teen adventure books-to-film were ending with Harry Potter and Twilight, you thought wrong. There’s a whole slue of adaptations in the works and the next one focuses on a magical girl and an ordinary boy. “Beautiful Creatures” is due out February 13, 2013 and tells the story of ordinary local boy Ethan (Alder Ehrenreich) and new-to-town Lena (Alice Englert). Lena possesses a powerful magic that will either turn her light or dark.
The story is based on the five-novel series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. Though not much is known about its two starring teens, the adult cast makes us pretty optimistic for this film’s potential. Viola Davis (The Help), Jeremy Irons (Eragon), Emma Thompson (Harry Potter) and Emmy Rossum (Phantom of the Opera) also star.
