MONGOL director helms new fantasy epic SEVENTH SON
This is exciting news, one of the best films of 2007, Mongol: The Rise of Genghis Khan (if you are into subtitles) was directed with mastery by Russian Sergei Bodrov, and after stumbling with new and bizarre material in the form of A Yakuza's Daughter Never Cries, he is returning to the fable and legendary roots with fantasy epic Seventh Son.

Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore and Ben Barnes Lead the International Cast.

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 (cue Iron Maiden here).

Bodrov is directing the film  from a screenplay based on the book The Spook's Apprentice by Joseph Delaney

Seventh Son will be filmed entirely on location in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
