Glee's Dianna Agron, Sam Claflin and Imogen Poots screen testing for The Seventh Son
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Casting for the male and female leads in the upcoming supernatural film (which may become a franchise) THE SEVENTH SON is underway and we have several actors and actresses going in front of the cameras for testing. The film follows a young man named Tom, who is the seventh son of a seventh son and is capable of fighting supernatural creatures. He will train under Master Gregory (Jeff Bridges) to become a “Spook” and fight evil including one in the form of a witch named Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore) who sucks the youth from young women for beauty. Testing for Tom we have: Sam Claflin (PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES), Caleb Landry-Jones (Banshee in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS) and James Frecheville (ANIMAL KINGDOM). For the leading lady named Alice we have: Dianna Agron (GLEE and I AM NUMBER FOUR), Imogen Poots (CENTURION), Felicity Jones (THE TEMPEST), Alicia Vikander (BELOVED) and Gabrielle Wild (APPROACHING MIDNIGHT). The script is still going through some revisions but casting should be set soon so filming can get underway this summer.
You may remember this as being one of the franchises that Alex Pettyfer turned down, and he’s probably wishing he hadn’t now that it has such talent as Julianne Moore and Jeff Bridges attached.
