“Game of Thrones” breakout star Kit Harington is in final negotiations to join the cast of Sergey Bodrov’s “The Seventh Son” at Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures says Variety.
Based on Joseph Delaney’s children’s book series “The Wardstone Chronicles” (aka. “The Last Apprentice”), the story follows a young man named Tom (Ben Barnes) in training to be the apprentice of a ‘Spook’ (Jeff Bridges), a fighter against evil magic, in the 1700’s.
Trouble begins when his friend Alice (Alicia Vikander) tricked into releasing the most sinister witch in the world (Julianne Moore). Harington will play the former apprentice of Bridges’ character.
Matt Greenberg adapted the script while Bodrov, Thomas Tull, Basil Iwanyk and Lionel Wigram are producing. Shooting kicks off in April and Harington will shoot his role before he begins filming the third season of “Game of Thrones” in July.
