Richard LaGravenese ought to be shooting Beautiful Creatures right now, but one or two roles still need to be filled before casting is complete. After all, Variety reports that Kyle Gallner (Red State, A Nightmare on Elm Street) will join the young adult fantasy love story what-have-you, therefore putting him in the company of Alden Ehrenreich, Emmy Rossum, Emma Thompson, Viola Davis, Jeremy Irons, and a few others.
Amidst the story of two lovers who “uncover dark secrets about their families, their history and their town,” Gallner will be playing Larkin, younger brother of Rossum‘s character, Lena, who puts a spell on him. And now I have that soul song stuck in my head. The film will hit on February 1st, 2013.
Secondly, THR has learned that Brian Geraghty won’t be going it alone on Walter Strafford‘s Kilimanjaro. Abigail Spencer (Mad Men) has been confirmed to join the independent drama, which revolves around a man who, after a break-up, finds himself compelled to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro as a show of pride; she’ll play the receptionist he takes a liking to.
While certainly a smaller — thought not necessarily lesser — effort, Kilimanjaro feels like the next step in Breslin‘s slow move toward features. There was a quick turn in last year’s Cowboys & Aliens, and next March will see her do some more fantasy work on Sam Raimi‘s Oz: The Great and Powerful — a role that’s to be followed by Wrong Number, a film written by the actress herself. Judging by her work as one of Don Draper’s many conquests, it’s a deserved ascent, too.
Do you think either casting choice will compliment the films at hand?
