It’s not due out until October 2013, but the first images from The Seventh Son have already arrived via USA Today, featuring Ben Barnes, Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore. The film is based on Joseph Delany’s novel The Spook’s Apprentice, but gets a bit name change for the film version.
Barnes plays Tom, the seventh son of a seventh son, who becomes the apprentice to master wizard ‘Spook’ Gregory (Jeff Bridges). Their characters must team up to do battle with an evil witch (Julianne Moore) who escapes and rounds up a group of evil-doers to plan an all-out assault.
Alicia Vikander plays a young witch who Tom falls for, while Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) is also onboard as one of Gregory’s apprentices. In the book, Tom is a teen, which seems to be changing, as at 31-year-old, Barnes can’t pass for that young anymore. Sergey Bodrov directs.
It’s a film that’s been in the works for a long time, so hopefully the final results will be worth it.
