Kyle Gallner, probably best known for his role in Kevin Smith's "Red State," has joined the film that will see him play along a pretty solid cast including Alice Englert, Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis, Emma Thompson, Emmy Rossum, Thomas Mann and last minute replacement lead, Alden Ehrenreich. Written and directed by Richard LaGravanese ("P.S. I Love You"), the picture will tell the tale of leads Ethan Wate (Ehrenreich) and Lena Duchannes (Englert), two teens in the deep south who are drawn together by a strange connection and supernatural secrets. Gallner is taking the role of Larkin, the younger brother to Rossum's character who she casts a spell on.
Filming is underway on the project with a February 1, 2013 release date penciled in. And if all goes well, WB are hoping this can be spun into a franchise, with four more books from the Caster Chronicles to draw on. [Variety]
