Books into Movies: Beautiful Creatures (Casting 2)

Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles, #1)
One more actor has been cast in the adaptation of Beautiful Creatures. According to various websites like Fused Film and The Hollywood Reporter, Emma Thompson will join the cast a Mrs. Lincoln, the town's outspoken religious leader.

There were no surprises in Gatlin County. We were pretty much the epicenter of the middle of nowhere. At least, that's what I thought.Turns out, I couldn't have been more wrong. There was a curse. There was a girl. And in the end, there was a grave. Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever. Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them. In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything

News of Emma Thompson is pretty great! She's a wonderful actress and will fit the ensemble cast perfectly. So here's the cast so far:

Alice Englert 
Role: Lena Duchannes

Role: Ethan Wate

Role: Amma 

Role: Mrs. Lincoln

Also, for those movie buffs out there, the Tele-Munchen Group just bought the rights to the Beautiful Creatures movies for an estimated 8 million dollars! This means that TMG has full rights in Germany for the film. They were also the disributors in Germany for Twilight. If your from another country, this probably doesn't mean much to you except for the fact this movie is going to be awesome! The cast is already looking superb and big bucks are already being shown! I can't wait :)

So what do you think about the casting choices? Do you think it's a pretty top notch team? Or would you have preferred someone else?
