Warners Slates ‘Beautiful Creatures’ For 2013

Now that the long-gestured Beautiful Creatures is gearing up for production, Alcon has slated the Richard LaGravenese-directed genre flick starring Viola Davis, Jack O’Connell, Alice Englert and Emma Thompson for release on February 1, 2013.

The first of a five-novel series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. In the first book, high-school student Ethan Wate meets and becomes bewitched by Lena Duchannes, a 16-year-old whose family has moved to the small South Carolina town where he lives. The two must confront a curse that has haunted her family for generations as she comes to grips with her powers.
