In case you think you’ve seen that article title before, you did. But apparently The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising didn’t sit right with someone, so now it is being billed as just The Seeker. And apparently there are a lot of changes from the book as well. Christopher Eccleston has mentioned the “americanization” of the story, with the protagonist an American thirteen year old living in Northern England, instead of an 11 year old British boy. And the old man named Walker is 25 years old (played by Jonathan Jackson, Tuck Everlasting) and had his own storyline.
