The Seventh Son
Jeff Bridges stars as John Gregory, the local Spook. He's protected the county from witches, boggarts, ghouls and all manner of things that go bump in the night. But John's getting older so he's in need of an apprentice; sounds simple but all the ones he's tried to train have died. There's only one young buck left, a farmer's son, and his name is Thomas Ward (Ben Barnes). Thomas is the seventh son of a seventh son, who'll need all the luck he can get.
Can this fine young fella survive his training and hold his own against Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore), the most dangerous witch in the county? We'll soon find out. Based on Joseph Delaney's The Spooks Apprentice, The Seventh Son is the first in a series of tales known as The Wardstone Chronicles, and is scheduled to hit Irish cinema screens just in time for Halloween on October 18th 2013.
