“Ringer” star Zoey Deutch has joined writer/director Richard LaGravenese’s big screen adaptation of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl’s 1985 novel Beautiful Creatures. The romantic frightener follows a teenage couple who discover dark secrets about their families and town.
Alice Englert (Singularity) and Jack O’Connell (Eden Lake) play the story’s lovers, Lena and Ethan. Deutch has been cast as Ethan popular, but nasty, ex-girlfriend, Emily Asher. Emily Rossum (”Shameless”) also stars as a witch. Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis and Emma Thompson play the film’s old people.
Deutch can currently be seen on The CW’s Sarah Michelle Gellar comeback vehicle “The Ringer.” The 17-year-old up-and-comer was also a recurring on the Disney Channel’s “Suite Life on Deck.”
Twentieth Century Fox has released the first full-length trailer to Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, a stand-alone sci-fi actioner that will reveal origins to Scott’s 1979 classic frightener Alien … and Noomi Rapace in her space undies. Co-written by Damon Lindelof (“LOST”), the film follows a team of scientists stranded on a hostile planet where no one will hear them scream.
The official synopsis reads:
In the distant future, two superpowers control Earth and fight each other for all the solar system’s natural resources. When one side dispatches a team to a distant planet to terraform it for human colonization, the team discovers an indigenous race of bio-mechanoid killers.
