Horror flicks are hot these days, and perhaps none is sizzling more than "The Seventh Son," which tells the story of a young boy training to be an exorcist—who runs into a spot of trouble when he's tricked into releasing the most evil witch in the world.
So, which up-and-coming stars are we talking about exactly?
For the part of Tom Ward, the aforementioned exorcist-in-training, the short list includes Sam Claflin ("The Pillars of the Earth"), Caleb Landry-Jones ("Friday Night Lights") and James Frecheville ("Animal Kingdom").
For Alice, whom we're betting is Tom's partner-in-crime/ love interest, the list is even longer — Imogen Poots ("Jane Eyre"), Felicity Jones ("Chalet Girl"), Alicia Vikander ("Beloved"), Gabrielle Wild ("Approaching Midnight") and Dianna Agron ("Glee") are all gunning for the role.
According to Variety, testing for these parts was delayed due to rewrites that needed to be made to secure Bridges.
With production slated to start as soon as September 13 in Vancouver, the casting directors better start those screen tests soon!
