Emma Thompson Joins Viola Davis In Beautiful Creatures image
The cast of Beautiful Creatures has been growing seemingly exponentially in the past couple weeks. It began when Viola Davis, nominated for Best Actress this year for her performance in The Help, signed on and just yesterday it was revealed that Jack O’Connell and Alice Englert have joined on. Today they've added a two-time Oscar winner.

Emma Thompson, according to THR, is the newest actress to join the ranks of Beautiful Creatures. The film is based on the novel by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl and is being both written and directed by Richard LaGravanese. Described as a "supernatural coming-of-age story," the story follows a young boy and girl who investigate a curse that has been haunting the girl's family for generations. Thompson is set to play a dual role in the movie, portraying the character of Mrs. Lincoln - described as being "small town religious firebrand" - and the witch that possesses Mrs. Lincoln, named Sarafine. The book is from a series called The Caster Chronicles and the fourth book is due out this year.

Thompson has a number of titles due out this year including Barry Sonnenfeld's Men in Black III (in which she plays the new head of MIB), Terrence Malick's Voyage of Time (which she is narrating), Pixar's Brave (where she is voicing the mother of the main character), and Richard Laxton's Effie (based on an original script she wrote).

While I can't say I've seen anything from O'Connell or Englert, having Davis and Thompson in supporting roles is a good sign for any project. Casting seems to be developing quickly, so keep checking back for more about Beautiful Creatures.

Wow I am trying to imagine Emma Thompson as Ms Lincoln and Sarafine, what an interesting choice!~!
I wonder who will play Marian the Librarian and Macon Ravenwood???
Any Ideas??~??

Waiting on Wednesday, The Darkest Seduction by Gena Showalter

Jill over at Breaking the Spine started and I found it on the Ravenous Reader blog. I agree it is a great idea. This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

  I am so very excited to get my hands on Paris's story!~!

 The Darkest Seduction

The Darkest Seduction By Gena ShowalterIn The Darkest Seduction, Gena Showalter unveils the story of Paris, the most irresistible—and most tormented—Lord of the Underworld. Keeper of the demon of Promiscuity, Paris is cursed to never be with the same woman twice. The one exception to this hellish rule is the enemy he should never have fallen for: Sienna, the mortal woman he’d lost too soon.

Now, Paris will embark on a perilous voyage to the heavens’ darkest realm in a quest to bring Sienna back where she belongs—by his side. But this quest is just the beginning of his journey. Because they’re now caught in the middle of a war between the gods, the angels and the creatures of the night. And their next move could either bind them eternally…or tear them apart forever….

Goodreads: In this irresistibly seductive Lords of the Underworld adventure, an immortal warrior's desire for the wrong woman may ignite the biggest war the heavens have ever witnessed.

Creepy! Bethany also signed stacks of ARCs, so good luck to those who’ve entered some of the giveaways!
