With the massive success of "The Hunger Games," fans, studios and pundits alike are already wondering what will be the next big franchise to follow in its footsteps.

One young adult novel adaptation that's popped up everywhere from The Hollywood Reporter to the Los Angeles Times and gazillions of blogs in between is one we've been covering since our site launched more than a year ago: "Beautiful Creatures," by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.

The book follows Southern teen Ethan Wate as he falls in love with the gorgeous and mysterious Lena, who turns out to be a witch-like Caster. The movie – due in theaters next February – has been on a casting tear, tapping the likes of Emma Thompson, Viola Davis and Jeremy Irons to play some of the grown-up leads alongside newcomers Alice Englert and Jack O'Connell, who are taking on the roles of Lena and Ethan, respectively.

"The Caster Chronicles," by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, certainly deserves its place in the next-big-franchise, post-"Harry Potter" and "Twilight" conversation. And today marks not only the unveiling of the cover of the third book, "Beautiful Chaos," on Hollywood Crush, but an official status check on the book-to-movie process.

And, of course, what adaptation discussion would be complete without a little fantasy casting? Get More »
