First Look: Sorcerer Jeff Bridges & Julianne Moore in 'Seventh Son'
After taking on the title role of Prince Caspian in the Chronicles of Narnia franchise, Ben Barnes is heading back into the fantasy world for The Seventh Son, an adaptation of The Last Apprentice (or The Wardstone Chronicles) book series by Joseph Delaney. Mongol director Sergei Bodrov is behind the adaptation, and now we have a couple of first look photos from the movie featuring Barnes as Thomas with his sorcerer teacher Spook, played by Jeff Bridges, and Julianne Moore as Mother Malkin, a powerful witch. This could be a fun for Bridges and Moore, but these kind of films always have to climb from behind the shadows of Harry Potter to really get noticed. Stay tuned as a teaser trailer might be on the way soon.
Thanks again to USA Today for unveiling these two photos from The Seventh Son, produced by Legendary.
When Thomas (Ben Barnes), seventh son of a seventh son, is apprenticed to the local Spook (Jeff Bridges), whose job is to fight evil spirits and witches, he expects a life of danger. However, the boy doesn't realize just how soon he'll face a powerful enemy alone, as Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore) escapes her confinement while the Spook is away. Thomas is forced to use his wits, and the help of his enigmatic new friend, Alice (Alica Vikander), to fight the evil witch. And defeating her is only the start of the boy's problems. The Seventh Son is directed by Sergein Bodrov and arrives in theaters on October 13th, 2013.
