British actress Olivia Williams (The Ghost Writer, The Sixth Sense, An Education) will star opposite Ben Barnes, Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore in Warner Bros Pictures and Legendary’s The Seventh Son, reports Deadline.
“The film is an adaptation of a series of young adult books about a teen who learns the art of wizardry after discovering that he is the seventh son of a seventh son.” It follows Tom Ward, a young boy training to be an exorcist in the 1700’s and must learn how to exorcise ghosts, contain witches, and bind boggarts. Trouble begins when he’s tricked into releasing the most evil witch in the world.
The Seventh Son was formerly known as “The Spook’s Apprentice” and is part of Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ adaptation of Joseph Delaney’s young adult series “The Last Apprentice.” It is based on the first book in the trilogy “The Wardstone Chronicles.” Thomas Tull, Basil Iwanyk and Lionel Wigram will produce.
