Jeremy Irons is the most recent in a flurry of casting announcements, joining Viola Davis (Amma), Emma Thompson (Mrs. Lincoln/Sarafine), Emmy Rossum (Ridley), Thomas Mann (Link) and relative newcomers Alden Ehrenreich (Ethan) and Alice Englert (Lena).

Ehrenreich and Englert are the centerpieces of the coming-of-age story about two star-crossed teens – one a local boy, the other a mysterious new girl – who uncover dark secrets about their families, their history and their town.

Jeremy will play the role of Macon Ravenwood, the mysterious and reclusive uncle of Englert’s character. Macon is an incubus who can see and steal the dreams of others.

Filming begins in April 2012 in and around New Orleans.  Jeremy will likely be on set from approximately April 19 to June 23, after he finishes filming Night Train to Lisbon and before starting production on Season 3 of Showtime’s The Borgias.

Richard LaGravenese (P.S. I Love You) will direct from his adaptation.

Alcon, which has film rights to all three books in the series published by Little Brown Books, including Beautiful Darkness, and Beautiful Chaos, is looking at Beautiful Creatures to kick off a possible franchise at WB.  A fourth book, Beautiful Redemption, will be released October 23, 2012.

Alcon recently produced the hit Dolphin Tale, a 3-D family film starring Morgan Freeman, Harry Connick Jr., Ashley Judd and Kris Kristofferson.

Jeremy Irons via Skype for ‘The Words’ Press Conference at Sundance

Jeremy Irons joined the press conference at the Sundance Film Festival for The Words via Skype today, from his home in Oxfordshire.

Jeremy Irons might have been thousands of miles away from the Sundance Film Festival, but he was the life of the party at The Words press conference on Thursday.

By Bryan Alexander

Skyping in from his computer in Oxfordshire, England (where he’s about to shoot a new movie), Irons interrupted the press conference at one point to ask to see his co-star Bradley Cooper.

“Could you please turn the camera towards Bradley for me,” Irons said. “My (assistant) is sitting on the floor here and she’s very keen to see him up close.”

People’s reigning Sexiest-Man-Alive Cooper, who was showing some serious Sundance stubble, was finally brought in front of the camera. Irons then coo-ed: “Okay Bradley, now smolder for me.”

Irons puffed away on cigarettes as his image was broadcast on a large screen during the press conference at the Acura Studio in Park City, Utah.

“The advantage I have here is that I can have a cigarette,” he gloated. “The disadvantage is that I cannot hit the ski slopes.”

Irons, 63, also went on to talk about how hard it was to play an old man in the film.

“The hardest thing was to play someone so incredibly old,” he said. “Because you know I’m actually quite young. The reason I have this beard is because I play someone who is also old. It’s a stretch.”

Irons was such a hoot that writer-director Brian Klugman finally announced, “Jeremy will now be doing five-minutes of stand-up.”
