Lots of actors are vying for the lead roles in Warner Bros.’ upcoming tale of exorcism, The Seventh Sign, and the studio that the Bunny built has finally put out an offer to two of them.
According to Variety Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. have decided to go with a pair of fresh faces for the two youthful leads, with Sam Claflin and Alicia Vikander (pictured right) now in negotiations for the roles of Tom and Alice.
The duo of Claflin (Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides) and Vikander were among the almost dozen of young thesps testing for the roles this week. The two emerged as favorites among several execs on Thursday. Jeff Bridges is in talks to take on the role of the Spook, and Julianne Moore is nearing a deal to play a witch in the movie.
Sergei Bodrov (Nomad, Mongol, Yakuza Girl) is directing from a screenplay by Max Borenstein.
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.
Production begins September 13th in Vancouver with Legendary Pictures producing. More soon!
