After an incredibly annoying report of actors and actresses “reading” for a role, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. have decided to go with a pair of fresh faces for the two youthful leads in The Seventh Son, with Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides) and Alicia Vikander (pictured inside) now in negotiations for the roles of Tom and Alice, reports Variety.
With these deals ramping up, the pic is moving closer to a greenlight.
Jeff Bridges is in continued talks to take on the role of the Spook and Julianne Moore (broken by Bloody Disgusting) is nearing a deal to play a witch in the pic.
Formerly known as “The Spook’s Apprentice,” the Sergei Bodrov-directed fantasy tale is adapted from Joseph Delaney’s young adult series about a 13-year-old who’s the seventh son of a seventh son and learns about wizardry from a forbidding spook.
