More information about the book

In some casting (and potential casting) news, Just Jared is reporting that Jeff Bridges will play the role of John Gregory in The Seventh Son, a film adaptation of the young adult fantasy novel The Last Apprentice: Revenge of the Witch by Joseph Delaney.

Published under the heading "The Wardstone Chronicles" in the UK, the books of "The Last Apprentice" series feature the seventh son of a seventh son, Thomas J. Ward, who is sent to apprentice under John Gregory, the County Spook, a powerful figure who deals with evils of the dark.

Offers are out to Alex Pettyfer (I Am Number Four) for the role of Thomas and to Jennifer Lawrence (Winter's Bone) for the role of a suspected witch (presumably the Alice Deane character in the book).

The are currently seven books in the series, with an eighth to be published this year.
