Antje Traue On For The Seventh Son

Antje Traue On For The Seventh Son

Now that she’s finished her stint helping Michael Shannon cause trouble for Henry Cavill in Man Of Steel, Antje Traue is sticking with powered people, and has signed on to the cast of The Seventh Son.

She’ll join Ben Barnes, Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore and Alicia Vikander in the tale of a teenager (Barnes) who, being the seventh son of a seventh son, finds he has the power to become a wizard. He gets his instruction from a forbidding spook (Bridges) and is soon learning what he needs to know to fight “The Dark”, including some particularly nasty witches. The story was adapted from Joseph Delaney’s book The Spook’s Apprentice, the first novel in his Wardstone Chronicles series.

Sergey Bodrov is directing and now that the film has made its way through the tricky minefield of casting (Sam Claflin was originally supposed to play the hero, Tom Ward), Seventh Son will kick off shooting in April.

Traue was also seen in Pandorum and has roles in Nobel’s Last Will and Transfer At Aachen. Man Of Steel will arrive in the States on June 14, 2013, but doesn’t yet have a set date for the UK. It’ll likely be day and date, though...
