With Legendary joining Universal as a new partner in July, the two have already moved around release dates for upcoming projects, including pushing ‘Seventh Son’ from 2014 to 2015.
‘Seventh Son,’ starring Jeff Bridges, was set to open on January 17, 2014 but will now open on February 6, 2015. The move is interesting given that Universal is already opening ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ on Valentine’s Day 2015, but given that ‘Seventh Son’ plays to boys, the move comes off as good counter-programming.
This marks the second time Legendary has moved ‘Seventh Son,’ which was supposed to open this October, before Legendary pushed it back 3 months to January.
Highland Film Group has picked up worldwide sales on ‘Your Right Mind’ starring Katherine Heigl and Ben Barnes and will introduce to buyers.
The contemporary romance is set to begin shooting in the first quarter of 2014 and is being directed by Ami Canaan Mann.
‘Your Right Mind’ follows a modern day train hopper fighting to be a successful musician and a single mom battling to maintain custody of her daughter defying their circumstances by coming together in a relationship that may change each others lives forever. Mann wrote the screenplay.
Molly Hassell and Todd Labarowski of Dreambridge Capital produce. Jon Avnet, Rodrigo Garcia and Highland’s Arianne Fraser and Delphine Perrier serve as executive producers.
Ben recently spoke with Arlene Weiss of PopEntertainment.com about his upcoming films, ‘Seventh Son’ and ‘God Only Knows’. Check out the full interview here.
Hi Ben, how are you. I want to congratulate you on the upcoming release of Seventh Son. I saw the trailer and also filmed footage of the panel that you and the cast held at San Diego Comic-Con International 2013 and it looks amazing! For folks who haven’t yet seen the footage, what can you tell people about the film’s storyline and especially about your character Tom Ward, and his relationship to Jeff Bridges’ character Master John Gregory?
Thank you. Seventh Son is a story about a grizzly Spook or fighter of witches and the dark side, played by Jeff Bridges. I am apprenticed to him early in the film and he must train me to aid him in defeating the evil Mother Malkin played by Julianne Moore, and her gathering horde. As we train and take on warlocks and boggarts, our relationship develops from mistrustful and antagonistic into a strong bond.
