"Whadja puke on the carpet for, man? It really tied the room together, ya know? Now it's gone. That's it! I cast thee out, man!" Oh, how I wish this one could play out just like that! The devil is going to once again get his cinematic due, but this time he'll be facing off with his greatest enemy yet ... The Dude!

Jeff BridgesAccording to Just Jared Jeff Bridges has signed on to star as Exorcist Master Gregory, aka "The Spook" in the upcoming horror flick The Seventh Son.

Bridges will star opposite Alex Pettyfer and Jennifer Lawrence in Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ adaptation of Joseph Delaney’s young adult series The Last Apprentice.

The film, formerly known as The Spook's Apprentice, follows Pettyfer’s character of Tom Ward, who is training to be an exorcist and possesses the unique ability to see and hear ghosts as well as smell the presence of death. Trouble begins when he's tricked into releasing the most evil witch in the world. Gotta hate when that happens.

Look for more soon, man.
