The lowdown: Mardi Gras, creole cooking and jazz - now this is where to take a business trip. New Orleans served as the backdrop for Oscar nominee Richard LaGravanese's adaption of the trilogy set in Gatlin, North Carolina. The Southern Gothic feel of the city sets the stage for the storyline of a high school boy who wants to get out of small-town dodge. Along the way, he hooks up with your not-so-average girl, who has not-so-average magical powers. All of which come in handy in uncovering those deep, dark secrets about their history, families and their shady town.
Slated for release: February 2013
