‘Steel’ thesp Traue begets ‘Seventh Son’

Surprise superman thesp boards Legendary project

With production on “Man of Steel” wrapping up, relative newcomer Antje Traue is staying in business with Legendary Pictures, as the German thesp is joining the cast of “The Seventh Son.”

Formerly known as “The Spook’s Apprentice,” tale is adapted from Joseph Delaney’s young adult series about a teen who’s the seventh son of a seventh son, and learns about wizardry from a forbidding spook. Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes, Julianne Moore and Alicia Vikander are set to star, with Sergey Bodrov helming.

Legendary’s Thomas Tull, Thunder Road’s Basil Iwanyk and Lionel Wigram will produce. Jon Jashni and former Legendary exec Alysia Cotter will exec produce.

Traue was a surprise pick as the female villain in the latest reboot of the Superman series. This latest move by Legendary shows they liked what they saw. “Man of Steel” bows on June 14, 2013.

Traue is repped by UTA and Troika.
