As VancouverFilm first reported in its March 2012 film production update, the new movie started shooting March 19.

"Seventh Son" stars Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Ben Barnes, Alicia Vikander, Antje Traue, Olivia Williams and Kit Harington :

" 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' (Bridges) is a knight who had imprisoned the malevolently powerful witch, 'Mother Malkin' (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' (Barnes) to fight a dark magic unlike any other. Man’s only hope lies in the seventh son of a seventh son..."

Screenplay is by Matt Greenberg, Charles Leavitt and Steve Knight.
