Joseph Delaney's popular tween-teen crossover series "The Last Apprentice" — now on book 8 or so — is being adapted into a movie!
The movie, planned as the first in a series, will be based on the first book only, Revenge of the Witch, and will be called "The Seventh Son." Stars already lined up include Jeff Bridges (as the Spook) and Julianne Moore (as scary-evil witch Mother Malkin). No announcement yet who will play the young apprentice Tom (although one rumor says Alex Pettyfer). The latest IMDb posting has it scheduled for release in 2013.
Haven't read these yet? Don't be fooled by the location of these books in the children's section of the library — they are seriously creepy! And the 2013 movie release date gives you plenty of time to catch up!
