Hot off his starring turn in Warner Bros.’ hit comedy “Project X,” Thomas Mann is in negotiations to join the studio’s adaptation of “Beautiful Creatures,” the first novel in Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl’s popular series that is being produced by Alcon Entertainment.
Richard LaGravenese is writing and directing the supernatural love story, which stars Jack O’Connell and Alice Englert as two star-crossed teens who uncover dark secrets about their families, their history and their town.
Viola Davis, Emma Thompson and Emmy Rossum co-star, with the latter thesp playing a witch who is Englert’s cousin and enemy.
Mann is in talks to play Link, O’Connell’s best friend who’s fond of both music and magic, which Rossum’s character uses to get Link to obey her commands.
