As The Twilight Saga draws to a close with Breaking Dawn Part 2 hitting theaters this fall, young adults and fans of romance may have the upcoming adaptation of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's novel Beautiful Creatures to look forward to if they're looking for a young-love fix. The film has begun production and a photo of the two leads has made its way online.

Beautiful Creatures tells the story of two teenagers living in a small town in the south, who soon discover a strong connection with one another, which is tied to the history of the town in which they live. The film, which started production recently in New Orleans, is written and directed by Richard LaGravenese.

Entertainment Weekly shared the first look at the film's leads…

Clearly a happier moment in the story, as Ethan and Lena embrace amidst a shower of something. Any guesses as to what that is?

Much in the way Twilight stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were relatively unknown before taking on the lead roles in the adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's vampire series (certainly by comparison to the fame each has achieved since, anyway), so too are Beautiful Creatures stars Alden Ehrenreich and Alice Englert, the two actors set to play Ethan Wate and Lena Duchaness respectively. Both have credits to their name prior to taking on this film, but this may be the movie that launches them toward stardom, should movie-goers take to Beautiful Creatures as they have the Twilight films. What do you think from this first look of the actors in character? Do Ehrenreich and Englert look as you pictured Ethan and Lena?

In addition to Ehrenreich and Englert, Beautiful Creatures stars Viola Davis, Jeremy Irons, Emmy Rossum, and Emma Thompson. The film releases into theaters February 15, 2013.
