Olivia Williams, best known for Rushmore and for Joss Whedon’s “Dollhouse”, has signed on to play a role in the upcoming The Seventh Son, Deadline reports.
Already set to star Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes, Julianne Moore, Alicia Vikander, Antje Traue and Kit Harington, 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, “The Spook’s Apprentice” 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”).
