USA Today recently released the first two photos from the upcoming project from Warner Bros. Pictures,’ Seventh Son. The adaptation features Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes, Kit Harrington, Olivia Williams, and Julianne Moore.
The script came from Matt Greenberg and Chuck Leavitt is adapted from the first of Joseph Delaney’s book series, “The Wardstone Chronicles” called The Spook’s Apprentice; for Americans it’s titled The Last Apprentice: Revenge of the Witch.
Seventh Son has the official description below:
In a time long past, an evil is about to be unleashed that will reignite the war between the forces of the supernatural and humankind once more. Master Gregory (Jeff Bridges) is a knight who had imprisoned the malevolently powerful witch, Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore), centuries ago. But now she has escaped and is seeking vengeance. Summoning her followers of every incarnation, Mother Malkin is preparing to unleash her terrible wrath on an unsuspecting world. Only one thing stands in her way: Master Gregory.
In a deadly reunion, Gregory comes face to face with the evil he always feared would someday return. Now he has only until the next full moon to do what usually takes years: train his new apprentice, Tom Ward (Ben Barnes) to fight a dark magic unlike any other. Man’s only hope lies in the seventh son of a seventh son.
The Sergei Bodrov-directed film hits 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on October 18, 2013 and also stars Alicia Vikander, Antje Traue, Olivia Williams and Kit Harington.
