'Spook's Apprentice' adaptation 'Seventh Son' delayed again to January 2014
Can't wait for "Seventh Son"? Well, you're gonna have to - and for even longer than you thought, as it turns out.
Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have delayed the release of the Sergei Bodrov-directed dark fantasy adaptation yet again, pushing it from its previously-announced October slot to January 17, 2014. The film was originally slated for February 2013 before its release was delayed owing to delivery problems with visual-effects house Rhythm & Hues (also a co-investor/producer on the project), which filed for bankruptcy that same month. The latest release-date shuffle comes despite Legendary paying out another $4.9 million to the Oscar-winning VFX studio to get all of the necessary shots finished by October.
In addition to "Seventh Son," Warner Bros. has also moved up the release date for its Robert De Niro-Sylvester Stallone boxing comedy "Grudge Match" by two weeks, from January 10, 2014 to December 25, 2013.
Based on "The Spook's Apprentice" - the first installment in Joseph Delaney's YA series "The Wardstone Chronicles" - "Seventh Son" stars Jeff Bridges as John Gregory, a sorcerer known as a "Spook" who fights against the forces of darkness. When the powerful witch Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore) escapes from the prison he had earlier condemned her to, John is forced to train a new apprentice named Tom Ward (Ben Barnes) to help fight her off.
