With the Harry Potter franchise coming to a close, Warner Bros. is on the search for their next big franchise. While I'd prefer that they'd take the reigns of the Inheritance Trilogy, think Eragon, and redo the franchise completely, they've instead gone with Beautiful Creatures.
Beautiful Creatures Getting Adapted
Authored by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, Beautiful Creatures is the first of a five-novel series that follows Ethan Wate.
Ethan Wate, a popular high school student, hates living in a small in South Carolina where nothing happens—until he meets and becomes bewitched by Lena Duchanne, a 16-year old whose family has moved back to town and who wishes for a mundane life. The star-crossed couple has to confront an age old curse that has haunted her family for generations, as she comes to grips with her powers.
Director Richard LaGravanese has been hired to direct and write the script.
