EMMY Rossum looks poised to join Emma Thompson and Viola Davis on supernatural love story Beautiful Creatures.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Shameless actress is in final talks to join Richard LaGravanese’s adaptation of the young-adult novel by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.

If talks conclude successfully, Rossum will also star alongside relative newcomers Jack O’Connell and Alice Englert in what is being described as a 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.

Rossum will play Ridley, Englert’s cousin, who became a dark witch on her 16th birthday, turning the girls into enemies.

Filming is die to begin in April on location in New Orleans.
