Dark is Rising name change

by on Aug.02, 2007, under Movies

The Dark is Rising, the Newbery winning novel turned feature film, is getting a bit of a name change. Now referred to as The Seeker: The Dark is Rising, it involves a boy (Alexander Ludwig, The Sandlot 3) who finds out that he is The Seeker, the last of a group of immortals dedicated to fighting evil forces. Also starring are Ian McShane (Deadwood) as Merriman Lyon and Christopher Eccleston (Doctor Who) as the Dark Rider. The movie is due out in October. I sense the name change is in anticipation of sequels…
