Mann in talks for ‘Beautiful Creatures’

Thesp would join Davis, Thompson, Rossum in pic

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.

Alcon toppers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove are producing with Erwin Stoff, and production on the Southern pic starts next month in New Orleans.

Produced by Todd Phillips and Joel Silver, “Project X” stars Mann as an average teen whose epic house party gets out of control. R-rated laffer grossed $21 million its opening weekend. Mann will soon be seen in a pair of Paramount pics — Josh Schwartz’s “Fun Size” and the Jeremy Renner vehicle “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.” Thesp also co-stars alongside Claire Danes and James Marsden in Max Mayer’s upcoming indie “As Cool as I Am.”

Mann is repped by Innovative Artists, KLWG Entertainment and attorney Adam Kaller.
