‘Beautiful Creatures’ attracts 3 thesps

Margo Martindale, Zoey Deutch join adaptation of YA title

Margo Martindale (“Justified”), Zoey Deutch (“Ringer”) and Rachel Brosnahan (“The Unborn”) are in final negotiations to join the cast of Alcon Entertainment’s “Beautiful Creatures.”

Richard LaGravenese is writing and directing the supernatural love story based on the first novel in Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl’s popular series. Alcon has film rights to all three books, hoping “Creatures” will kick off a possible franchise at Warner Bros., which will distribute.

Newcomers Jack O’Connell and Alice Englert star as Ethan and Lena, teenage lovers who uncover dark secrets about their families, their history and their town. Martindale will play Lena’s Aunt Del, who helps to protect her from the family’s dark side. Deutch will play Emily Asher, Ethan’s ex-girlfriend and the ringleader of the high school’s popular clique that conspires against Lena. Brosnahan will play Genevieve, who appears as Ethan’s love interest in flashbacks.

Pic co-stars Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis, Emma Thompson, Emmy Rossum and “Project X” star Thomas Mann.

Alcon toppers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove are producing with Erwin Stoff (“I Am Legend”) and Molly Smith (“Something Borrowed”). Filming begins next month in and around New Orleans.

Martindale, who’s coming off an Emmy win for her supporting turn on FX’s hit series “Justified,” can currently be seen on the CBS series “A Gifted Man.” She recently appeared in Tom McCarthy’s Fox Searchlight pic “Win Win.”

Deutch, who has a recurring role on the CW’s “Ringer,” next appears in Sony’s 3D summer tentpole “The Amazing Spider-Man.”

Innovative Artists reps Deutch and Brosnahan, who are respectively managed by Gilbertson Entertainment and Carole Dibo Talent Management. Martindale is repped by The Gersh Agency.
