The big screen adaptation of Beautiful Creatures, the first book in the Caster Chronicles series from Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, has just begun shooting in and around New Orleans. Garcia and Stohl's bestselling series includes Beautiful Creatures, Beautiful Darkness, Beautiful Chaos, and Beautiful Redemption (coming this October).
The official synopsis: "A hauntingly intense, supernatural love story set in the South, Beautiful Creatures is about two star-crossed teenage lovers: Ethan (Ehrenreich), a local boy, and a mysterious new girl, Lena (Englert), who uncover dark secrets about their respective families, their history and their town."
