Jeremy Irons Joins ‘Beautiful Creatures’

From the Hollywood Reporter , Deadline.com and exclusive information from jeremyirons.net

Jeremy Irons has joined the cast of Beautiful Creatures, Alcon’s adaptation of the young adult novel by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.

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.

Erwin Stoff (Water for ElephantsI Am Legend) will produce along with Kosove and Johnson (The Blind SideThe Book of Eli) and Molly Smith (Something Borrowed, P.S. I Love You.)

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.

Irons is repped by CAA and Ken McReddie Associates.

Jeremy Irons currently stars in Showtime’s period drama The Borgias, which returns for a second season on April 8, 2012. Film-wise, he was last seen in Margin Call and will next been seen in CBS Films’ The Words, which also stars Bradley Cooper.

Max Irons Promotes Red Riding Hood

Red Riding Hood director, Catherine Hardwicke, traveled to England to audition actors for Henry.

Hardwicke says, “Max Irons walks into this casting session, and he’s a very impressive guy. He stands 6 foot 3 and he’s simultaneously charismatic, down-to-earth and soulful. And then I asked about his family and learn that he’s Jeremy Irons’ son…

“Sold.”

Max Irons to star in The Girl with the Red Riding Hood

Max Irons, son of Jeremy Irons, has been set to star with Amanda Seyfried and Shiloh Fernandez in The Girl with the Red Riding Hood, the Warner Bros action film that will be directed by Twilight’s Catherine Hardwicke, in preparation for its July 7 start date in Vancouver.

Amanda Seyfried is playing a woman in a medieval village being terrorized by a werewolf. Earlier this week, Shiloh Fernandez nabbed the role of an orphaned woodcutter for whom Seyfried falls, much to the displeasure of her family.

Irons will play Henri, the son of a blacksmith who, through an arrangement, is to marry Seyfried’s character.

Julie Christie, who would make her first studio movie since 2004’s “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,” would play Seyfried’s grandmother, whose favorite pastime is knitting — with a pair of silver needles.

Gary Oldman would play Father Soloman, a man whose title is the Witchfinder General and whose job is to find and kill the werewolf.

The final decision to cast the two teenagers competing for Seyfried’s affection came after Hardwicke held a two-day “smack-down” where she brought eight young actors to a Hollywood sound stage and had them compete for the part. “It was wild,” says the director, reminiscing about the 21 hours of tape she culled from the intense two-day try-out. “We had eight guys all competing with each other for two parts. They all read with Amanda and they also had to do fight scenes with each other. It was kinda good to get their aggression out.”

As for Irons—who happens to be the son of Jeremy Irons—Catherine loved his classical British training which fit the more refined, mysterious role of Henry perfectly. “I don’t want to say too much about Max’s character. He’s one of the surprises in the movie. He’s not what you think he is on the surface.”

Irons has been nominated for an Ian Charleson Award in the UK – the award celebrates outstanding new talent in the theatre. He’s repped by UTA and UK-based Tavistock Wood.
