Dark Is Now The Seeker

The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising is the new name of the movie from Fox Walden based on the second of Susan Cooper's five fantasy books. The studio made the change on July 27.

Originally titled simply The Dark Is Rising, the movie is being adapted by writer John Hodge (Trainspotting) and director David L. Cunningham ("The Path to 9/11"). It opens Oct. 5.

The Dark Is Rising, which won the Newbery Honor in 1974, mixes Arthurian and other English folklore themes in its time-hopping narrative about young Will Stanton, who discovers that he is the Seeker and one of the last remaining "Old Ones," guardians and warriors of the Light.

In the movie, Will (Alexander Ludwig) is befriended by the mischievous Merriman Lyon (played by Deadwood star Ian McShane) and the ethereal Miss Greythorne (Six Feet Under's Frances Conroy). Will must gather the six Signs, or mystical medallions, in order to combat the Dark. But Will faces a potent adversary, called simply the Black Rider (Christopher Eccleston), a malevolent figure on a massive horse, whose goal is to stop Will and seduce him to the Dark.
