Ben Barnes in talks for The Seventh Son
Ben Barnes, the British actor who is best known for his role as Prince Caspian in The Chronicles Of Narnia franchise, is in negotiations to join Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore in The Seventh Son according to Variety.
Warner Bros. were previously in talks with Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) but those talks fell through, so the studio moved onto Barnes.
The movie was previously known as The Spook’s Apprentice and is an adaptation of the Joseph Delaney book series. The story follows Tom (Barnes), a young apprentice to an exorcist (Bridges) who battles ghosts and witches in the 1700s. A long time ago the Spook had bound a witch called Mother Malkin (Moore), who sucks the blood out of young women to keep her youth, to a pit in the ground. However Mother Malkin breaks out of her pit prison and the Spook and his apprentice must use their powers to defeat her. Alicia Vikander will play a witch named Alice who joins Tom on his journey.
Mongol director Sergey Bodrov is directing and the aim is to begin shooting later this year.

On Acting: You are doing everything you can to force yourself to think as somebody else. That´s what´s so fascinating about acting. But it can be hard on people around you, especially if you´re playing a tough role maybe someone going through a trauma. Then your friends dont know how deal with you.
As mastering an Irish accent for his role in Killing Bono: We couldnt really afford a dialect coach so I decided to stay in the accent from the moment I landed in Ireland to the moment I left. It was very confusing when I rang my mum – she´s a psychotherapist, so I´m sure she was very concerned.
On his worst wardrobe malfunction: I was belting out a song, doing my rock star bit, and suddently felt [my trousers] splitting. But I had to go with it so I finished the scene with my flies open, screamning and shouting like the least cool man ever.
On googleing himself: Have I googled myself? Yeah, a little while ago. You have to ignore the really over-the-top good stuff and you have to ignore the really over-the-top bad stuff. And kind of be confident in the fact that it´s probably somewhere in the middle.
On his reputation: I´d rather be shot than be seen falling out of some trendy club. Actually, what I´d like is to have a reputation as someone who´s been wild and gone straight but without having to go throught the trouble of being bad. I´d like to be a hellraiser – but skip hellraising itself.
