The Witcher series is being turned into an English language Netflix drama by CG visual effects company Platige Image S.A.
The Witcher series was spawned by Polish novelist Andrzej Sapkowski and has spawned highly successful (and wonderful) video games.
“I’m thrilled that Netflix will be doing an adaptation of my stories, staying true to the source material and the themes that I have spent over thirty years writing,” said Sapkowski, who will service as a creative consultant, in an official release. “I’m excited about our efforts together, as well as the team assembled to shepherd these characters to life.”
The show will be executive produced by Sean Daniel (The Mummy franchise) and Jason Brown (The Expanse). The Oscar nominated visual effects studio Platige Image S.A. is doing the show, but the official release doesn’t specifically state if it’s CG animated or live-action—or a mix of the two. No stills have been release yet, either.
wow, that’s fucking awesome! well to be honest it could either be really effin awesome, or it could turn out to be kinda crappy and a serious letdown — here’s to hoping it’s a whole buttload of the former, though :)
PS. the witcher 3 is fucking bananas, and if you’re into it, then you know it can easily eat up a couple hundred hours of your life.
