Actors circling supernatural thriller
Did The Rite‘s moderate opening weekend success help push some more exorcist fare into the Hollywood production pipeline? Maybe.
Just Jared reports that Warner Bros. and Legendary are at work on The Seventh Son and Jeff Bridges, Alex Pettyfer and Jennifer Lawrence are all circling roles. Bridges is a contender to play an exorcist, Pettyfer would play an exorcist-in-training (didn’t we just see this movie?) and Lawrence may fill the role of a suspected witch.
The tale is set in the 1700s. Sergey Bodrov is directing.
Son is based on the young adult novel “The Spook’s Apprentice,” part of Josephn Delaney’s line of books.
