According to Deadline, two-time Oscar winner Emma Thompson is in final negotiations to star in supernatural love story Beautiful Creatures. Directed by LaGravenese (P.S. I Love You) from his own adaptation of the New York Times best selling novel of the same name, Thompson will join current Oscar nominee Viola Davis as well as newcomers Jack O’Connell and Alice Englert.
If signed, Thompson will play the dual role of Mrs. Lincoln, a small town religious zealot, and Sarafine, the dark witch who possesses her. Erwin Stoff (I Am Legend) will produce along with Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove (The Book of Eli) and Molly Smith (P.S. I Love You). Alcon, which has film rights to all three books in the series published by Little Brown Books, is looking at Creatures to launch a possible franchise at Warner Bros. Filming will begin in April in and around New Orleans.
