Two years after being optioned by Alcon Entertainment the casting for Beautiful Creatures has started. But who will play your favorite character?

Beautiful Creatures is being penned and directed by Richard LaGravenese.  When speaking at Yallfest, Garcia said that LaGravenese had finished the script but neither author had read it yet.

For those unfamiliar with LaGravenese’s work he wrote Water for Elephants, PS I Love You, and Freedom Writers.  He directed PS I Love You and Freedom Writers, both of which were adaptations.

When I think about casting for Beautiful Creatures there are 6 main characters that have to be right.  Ethan and Lena are a given but Link, Macon, Amma, and Ridley are such vivid characters that they have to be played by just the right person.

Who do you think should be cast as Ethan, Lena, Link, Macon, Amma and Ridley?  Leave your suggestions in the comments so we can compare!

    I fell in love with this series upon reading it last summer, and I’m super excited to see it on film….as long as hey get it right, and it has to start with correct casting. Of course that means Amma, Link, Ridley, Lena, Ethan, and Macon have to be perfect

    I trust Kami and Margaret. I would like Logan Lerman for Ethan. He’s so Ethan-ish :3

  • SarahW

    @Anthi – I had no idea who Logan Lerman was, and after seeing his picture I couldn’t agree more!  He looks like the Ethan I imagined!  Pretty excited for this movie, even though it will probably be a few years before we see it…

  • Hpmovielover

    i think that ridely should be played by Avril Lavigne. she has the hair and the hots!

  • Kl2xtra

    Landon Liboiron should be Ethan!

  • darknesslover

    Alicia Josipovic should deffinitely be Ridley! Totally bad girl!!!

  • ay

    It’s hard because the authors didn’t give a very detail detail description, as to what they look like. It gave me the chance to invision them of how i thought they seemed. the movie will have a chance of destroying how i view them.

  • smudge

    they should choose some unknown actors to play the main characters, it would make the movie more fresh and i think it would be better if people saw the movie because of the movie and storyline and not the actors in it

  • LoganLermanForEthanWate!

    Logan Lerman SHOULD definitely Be Ethan Wate!

  • LoganLermanForEthanWate!

    Logan Lermna is the perfect one to take the role of Ethan Wate! Dude he definitely fits the character! :)

  • Guest

    i don’t think logan lerman would be a good idea but as for lena, jodelle ferland would be a good choice

  • Rowsi-Bob

    I am so exited about the film! I have nearly finished the first book and I love it. I think that Chase Ellison would make a good Ethan and that AnnaSophie Robb would be a nice Lena :)

  • Alaynav

    i think the girl who plays #6 in I Am Number Four should play Ridley

  • Crystalc23

    I think Sam Elliot would be a perfect Macon and the Amanda Sefreid girl would be a perfect Ridley

  • Dye Emily Browning’s hair black and call her Lena

  • meg.a.reader

    Even though they have made some decisions on the cast, I would have loved and would like to see these celebrities play in this series. I just went with what I imaged the characters to look like, not going with their acting skills or popularity.

    Lena: Jessica Stroup
    Ethan: Kevin G. Schmidt tied with Steven R. McQueen
    Link: Chord Overstreet tied with Cody Linley and Adam Hicks
    Ridley: Evan Rachel Wood; Ciara Hanna or Amber Heard
    Marian: Freida Pinto; Sanaa Lathan or Rashida Jones
    Uncle Macon: Daniel Day-Lewis tied with Michael Sheen
    Sarafine: Evangeline Lilly tied with Sophia Bush and Kate Beckinsale
    Amma: totally agree with Viola Davis

  • Miss Duchannes

    How about Isabelle fuhrman as Lena?

  • Cody

    You cannot forget about Marian Ashcroft! Please do not allow her to be cut from the movie if she is the 2nd and 3rd movie will be ruined. Marian Ashcroft was a beautifuly well written character, Ethan treated her like an aunt in the books and she was apart of his life.
