Default Seventh Son

March 19, 2008




Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures have signed Kevin Lima (Enchanted) to direct Spook's Apprentice, reports Variety.

He and the "Spook's" producing team flew to London last week to work on the adaptation of Joseph Delaney's children's book, first in a six-part series, about a 13-year-old boy who learns about wizardry from a forbidding old spook.

Matt Greenberg originally adapted the project, which Warners and Legendary are co-producing and co-financing along with Thunder Road. Thunder Road's Basil Iwanyk is producing with Lionel Wigram and Lima's producing partner, Chris Chase. Alysia Cotter, who brought the project to the studio before she joined Legendary, is executive producing.

Too bad Burton isn't doing his one after all.....He would have cast Depp as the 13 year old boy though.

I was holding out for Burton to adapt the film. And now he isn't. Was he only interested?

Okay, what is this director's track record? It better be ****ing good because these books are some of my favorites and I don't want to see them butchered.

At least they got a good writer.

Was Mongul good?

These books are great. It's like a more grown up and darker Harry Potter. The illustrations are scary and have this Burton Sleepy Hollow like imagry to them that I hope they adopt into the film.

Edit: Holy ****, two Academy Award nominations? Okay, now I'm optimistic.

That is Ben Barnes who played Prince Caspian in the Narnia films.

Kit Harrington (Game Of Thrones/Silent Hill:Revaltions), Olivia Williams (X-Men The Last Stand) and Djimon Housou (Blood Diamonds) also star in the movie.

I hope they didn't change too much. Because the books weren't set in the middle ages. More towards the 17th or 18th century.

I don't exactly mind Ben being older, but I don't like the change to a knight.

Warner Brothers has moved The Seventh Son off its October 18, 2013 date to January 17, 2014. It's the second time it's been moved around, which doesn't bode well.

http://boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=seventhson.htm

Looks like this will be a flop, or majorly underperform.

This reminds of the countless adaptations, including Eragorn, where it's totally mismanaged and misinterpreted.

She and Jeff Bridges may be the highlights. And Moore.

Or maybe the studio just doesn't have a clue how to market it properly. Not all January releases are bad movies.

But we haven't seen a trailer, just several images.

Maybe WB's just f**king with it because it's from Legendary. Maybe I'm looking at it the wrong way.

I thought I read somewhere that the push back to January '14 was mainly just because of the FX and the visuals getting an overhaul?
