Emmy Rossum has herself a little brother in Kyle Gallner. Variety reports the “Nightmare on Elm Street” star is set to join the cast of Warner Bros adaptation of paranormal teen romance “Beautiful Creatures”, based on the best-selling series of books by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. Newcomers Alden Ehrenreich (who replaced Jack O’Connell) and Alice Englert play the star-crossed lovers and are rounded out by a cast that also includes “Project X” star Thomas Mann, Viola Davis, Jeremy Irons and Emma Thompson.
In the Richard LaGravenese adapted and directed film, Ehrenreich’s Ethan is a popular high school student in a small southern town plagued by dreams of a mysterious girl – who then magically shows up in his town. Englert’s Lena, an outsider who’s also harboring a dangerous and… bewitching secret, is that girl. Rossum plays bad witch Ridley, while Gallner will be her little brother Larkin, who doesn’t show up until the second book, raising the possibility his role could be a small one that will be expanded if the film is successful enough to garner sequels in the vein of “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games.” Filming is set to begin soon in and around New Orleans.
Gallner, who played the male lead opposite Rooney Mara in 2010′s “A Nightmare on Elm Street” remake, will next be seen in last year’s Sundance premiere “Little Birds” which will finally see a release next month, and this year’s Sundance premiere “Smashed.” He was also in Kevin Smith’s “Red State” and will star in the director’s next, “Hit Somebody”, as well.

It’s been over a year since “Little Birds” became one of our most anticipated Sundance films, but only now are we getting our first glimpse at the coming of age drama from writer-director Elgin James.
Since its premiere at the Utah film festival in 2011, star Juno Temple has steadily gained more visibility in Hollywood, so it’s probably great timing that the movie will finally be released this June. Temple plays Lily, an aimless and depressed teenager living by the Salton Sea who convinces her more reserved best friend Alison (played by Kay Panabaker) to run away to Los Angeles with a boy she meets (Kyle Gallner). Of course, they get into more trouble than they expect and do a little growing up along the way.
No firm release date yet, but the first teaser trailer for “Little Birds” can be seen now below.

Today is the official first day of the annual Sundance Film Festival, so we are just around the corner from discovering some of the year’s best indie features and tomorrow’s breakout stars. Two years ago, Gabourey Sidibe and Mo’Nique broke out in a big way in “Precious: Based on the Novel by Sapphire”, riding buzz all the way to the Oscars, and who could forget last year, when “Winter’s Bone” premiered in Park City and people haven’t stopped talking about Jennifer Lawrence since?
There are sure to be some surprises that come out of nowhere to grab the attention of the festival and soon, the country, but based on what we know right now – the casts in particular – here are just a few of the films that we’re excited to see.
