[ScreenRant] The Witcher Movie in Development for 2017 Release

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Though most people are familiar with The Witcher because of the game trilogy, it actually began as a series of short stories and books by Andrzej Sapkowski. The books (and the games) follow the adventures of the witcher Geralt of Rivia, as he battles monsters in a land known only as The Continent.

In 2017, fans will be able to enjoy The Witcher on the big screen, as the Sean Daniel Company has partnered with Platige Films to make a feature-length film based around the character. This will actually be the second film adaptation of the character, though it will be the first to come from Hollywood.

The film won’t actually be a direct adaptation of the games, though it will still feature Geralt as the main character. Instead, it will be based on the themes of the short stories ‘The Witcher’ and ‘Lesser Evil,’ both of which can be found in the Last Wish story collection. Provided the film proves successful, it can be assumed that future films would also be based primarily on the stories instead of being direct video game adaptations. A television continuation of the film series is also planned, though this likely depends on the success of the first film.

I do love the witcher books. I am ok with this. Let's see who directs it and who the writers are.

I wonder how they'll tackle the more misogynistic aspects of the Witcher, they seemed to address the issue and deal with it pretty well in TW3, I wonder if they will deal with it in the same way.. It seems to me that Geralt has the potential for James Bond levels of objectifying women, but they've managed not to go down that route so far.

This has promise and potential. If a good script, a good director and the right actors/acrtesses are involved it cold be fantastic. Plus we'll get real BOOBS isstead of pixel BOOBS.

I mean who can say no to that? Everyone likes boobs!
