Ever since Twilight, studios have been looking to create their own young adult supernatural franchises. One of those arriving soon in Beautiful Creatures, based on Kami Garcia’s novel. Beautiful Creatures is set in the US South and is about two star-crossed teenage lovers: Ethan (Alden Ehrenreich), a local boy, and a mysterious new girl, Lena (Alice Englert), who uncover dark secrets about their respective families, their history and their town. Beautiful Creatures is the first of a five book series, so the studio will be hoping the movie is a success so they can line up some sequels. It hits cinemas early next year.
