Rossum to be Beautiful Creature

5 March 2012

Emmy Rossum is the latest actress to join the cast of supernatural love story Beautiful Creatures.

The Mystic River star - who has most recently been seen on the small screen in US TV show Shameless - will play a young witch in the movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog.

She joins Viola Davis and Emma Thompson in the flick.

The film is about a pair of star-crossed teenagers, played by relative newcomers Jack O'Connell and Alice Englert, who are dealing with a curse that has hung over the girl's family for generations.

Emmy's character is Ridley, the cousin of the girl, who becomes a dark witch on her 16th birthday.

Filming will begin in and around New Orleans this spring.
