No, that’s not the cover of the new Moody Blues album you’re seeing. Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ Seventh Son started shooting on March 19th under the direction of award-winning filmmaker Sergei Bodrov. And to celebrate (or whatever) Legendary has released some concept art for the film! It certainly gives it that Lord Of The Rings vibe doesn’t it?
As previously reported, Seventh Son stars Academy Award winner Jeff Bridges, Oscar nominee Julianne Moore, and Ben Barnes. The film’s international cast also includes Alicia Vikander, Antje Traue, Olivia Williams and Kit Harington. Bodrov is directing from a screenplay by Matt Greenberg, Charles Leavitt and Steve Knight, based on the book “The Spook’s Apprentice” by Joseph Delaney.
In the film, “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.”
