Warner Bros. has picked up the movie rights to Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's Beautiful Creatures, a series of youth-targeted fantasy-romance books. Creatures is the first of what's planned to be a five volume series. Screenwriter and director Richard LaGravenese (The Fisher King, The Horse Whisperer) will adapt and film the movie for the studio.
"I love supernatural stories that have well-drawn mythologies, and I liked that this book has all the basic elements of a classic first love story with a supernatural layer over it," LaGravenese said to Variety. "So the first time they hear the words 'boyfriend' and 'girlfriend,' they accidentally overhear each other telepathically. Their first kiss comes after he saves her life, and their first date is part of a bigger adventure that leads to the unraveling of the mysterious curse that haunts her family."- Variety.
