Skins star Jack O'Connell has landed the lead role in a new supernatural love story feature film ''Beautiful Creatures.''

Based on the first novel in a series known as the Caister Chronicles, it could be the start of a new Twilight-esque franchise, with Beautiful Creatures being followed by the subsequent books in the series Beautiful Darkness and Beautiful Chaos.

Jack will star alongside New Zealander Alice Englert  as the two teenage lovers - Ethan, a local boy who meets and becomes bewitched by Lena Duchannes, a 16-year-old whose family has moved to his small South Carolina town. The two must confront a curse that's haunted her family for generations as they uncover dark secrets about their families, their history and their town, and Lena  has to come to grips with her powers.

Jack (represented by Conway Van Gelder) will be seen this year in the Michael Morpugo adaptation Private Peaceful, »
