Official synopsis for Seventh Son unveiled as production gets underway

Production commenced last week on Sergei Bodrov's SEVENTH SON, starring Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore and Ben Barnes. Based on the book "The Spook’s Apprentice" by Joseph Delaney, the film comes from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures. A press release issued earlier today confirms that things recently got rolling; it also brings us a new synopsis for the film:

In a time long past, an evil is about to be unleashed that will reignite the war between the forces of the supernatural and humankind once more. Master Gregory (Jeff Bridges) is a knight who had imprisoned the malevolently powerful witch, Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore), centuries ago. But now she has escaped and is seeking vengeance. Summoning her followers of every incarnation, Mother Malkin is preparing to unleash her terrible wrath on an unsuspecting world. Only one thing stands in her way: Master Gregory.

In a deadly reunion, Gregory comes face to face with the evil he always feared would someday return. Now he has only until the next full moon to do what usually takes years: train his new apprentice, Tom Ward (Ben Barnes) to fight a dark magic unlike any other. Man’s only hope lies in the seventh son of a seventh son.

The supporting cast of SEVENTH SON includes Alicia Vikander (“The Crown Jewels”), Antje Traue (“Pandorum,” upcoming “Man of Steel”), Olivia Williams (“Hanna”) and Kit Harington (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”). The flick, Canada.

The film, which will be filmed entirely on location in Vancouver, British Columbia, is scheduled to come out on FEBRUARY 15, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: Are you looking forward to SEVENTH SON? Kinda hard to argue with a re-team of "The Dude" and "Maude Lebowski," isn't it?
