Jack O’Connell (pictured below) and Alice Englert are in final negotiations to join Viola Davis in Beautiful Creatures, Alcon’s adaptation of a novel by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, reports THR.
Richard LaGravanese adapted the book, the first in a series, and is directing. Warner Bros., which has an output deal with Alcon, is releasing the movie.
“Set in the South, Creatures centers on two high school teens who must confront a curse that has haunted the girl’s family for generations.”
O’Connell appeared in the British TV series “Skins” as well as movies such as the Michael Caine-starrer Harry Brown and the Australian horror movie Eden Lake, which featured then-rising actor Michael Fassbender and was directed by The Woman in Black‘s James Watkins.
