Beautiful Creatures centres on two mystically charged teens (O’Connell and Englert) who are mysteriously drawn to one another despite never having met, and uncover some unsettling secrets about their families and the small southern town in which they live. Irons will join previously-cast leads Jack O’Connell (UK’s Skins) and newcomer Alice Englert, as well as Emmy Rossum, Emma Thompson, and Viola Davis.
