Jack O'Connell Out; Alden Ehrenreich In for Beautiful Creatures
There's some quick casting news coming in for Beautiful Creatures: The previously announced Jack O'Connell has dropped out of the film due to scheduling conflicts and will be replaced by Alden Ehrenreich.
Richard LaGravenese is writing and directing the supernatural love story based on the first novel in Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's popular series. Alcon has film rights to all three books, hoping Creatures will kick off a possible franchise at Warner Bros., which will distribute.
Alden Ehrenreich and Alice Englert will star as Ethan and Lena, teenage lovers who uncover dark secrets about their families, their history and their town. Margo Martindale will play Lena's Aunt Del, who helps to protect her from the family's dark side. Zoey Deutch will play Emily Asher, Ethan's ex-girlfriend and the ringleader of the high school's popular clique that conspires against Lena. The film co-stars Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis, Emma Thompson, Emmy Rossum and "Project X" star Thomas Mann.
Erwin Stoff will produce along with Alcon co-toppers Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson.
