Alden Ehrenreich Joins 'Beautiful Creatures'

Writer-director Richard LaGravenese adapts Kami Garcia's novel

Alcon Entertainment has signed Alden Ehrenreich for its upcoming supernatural film "Beautiful Creatures," according to Variety.

Ehrenreich ("Tetro") replaces actor Jack O'Connell ("Eden Lake"), who departed the project because of a scheduling conflict.

Set to lens this month in New Orleans, the film -- based on a Kami Garcia novel -- will be helmed by writer-director Richard LaGravenese ("The Horse Whisperer," "Water for Elephants").

"Beautiful Creatures" follows a boy (Ehrenreich) and a mysterious new girl (Alice Englert) who are star-crossed lovers that discover dark secrets lurking in the history of their families and town.

Also starring in the film are Emma Thompson ("Sense and Sensibility"), Jeremy Irons ("Dead Ringers"), Viola Davis, Emmy Rossum, Thomas Mann, Zoey Deutch, Margo Martindale and Rachel Brosnahan.

Erwin Stoff ("Water for Elephants"), Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson are producing.

Garcia's novel "Beautiful Creatures" is part of a trilogy -- including "Beautiful Darkness" and "Beautiful Chaos" -- that may spawn a franchise for Alcon Entertainment at Warner Bros.

Ehrenreich is also appearing in Fox Searchlight's upcoming film "Stoker," starring Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska.
