Kit Harington Joins Seventh Son


Kit Harington, best known for playing Jon Snow on HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” has joined the cast of the upcoming fantasy film The Seventh Son, Variety reports.

Already set to star Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes, Julianne Moore and Alicia Vikander, The Seventh Son will be directed by Sergei Bodrov with a script from Matt Greenberg and Chuck Leavitt.

The film is an adaptation of Joseph Delaney’s children’s book about Thomas J. Ward, the seventh son of a seventh son, born in the 1700’s with supernatural abilities and who furthers his training with the help of a learned “Spook.” The novel is the first in a six-part series (known internationally as “The Wardstone Chronicles”)
