Production is still to get underway on Warner Bros. Pictures long-gestured The Seventh Son, yet they continue to cast away. With hopes of going behind the camera this April, “Game of Thrones” star Kit Harington is in final negotiations to join the cast of Warners and Legendary Pictures’ exorcism flick, says Variety.
He joins a cast that already includes Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes, Julianne Moore and Alicia Vikander with Sergey Bodrov helming.
Formerly known as “The Spook’s Apprentice,” tale is adapted from Joseph Delaney’s young adult series about a teen who’s the seventh son of a seventh son, and learns about wizardry from a forbidding spook.
Harington will play the former apprentice of Bridges’ character.
Bodrov is producing “Seventh Son,” along with Legendary’s Thomas Tull, Thunder Road’s Basil Iwanyk and Lionel Wigram. Jon Jashni and former Legendary exec Alysia Cotter will exec produce.
Matt Greenberg penned the script. WB hopes to get this in theaters by February 15, 2012.
