    New Netflix Series - The Witcher

    "Having already reached some of the heights of the superhero and action film worlds, Henry Cavill is setting his sights on fantasy-inspired TV.

    Netflix unveiled the first look at their upcoming adaptation of “The Witcher,” based on author Andrzej Sapkowski’s legendary book series and eventual video game franchise. It’s Cavill’s hair and makeup test, but that flowing silver hair, leather chestplate armor, and full swig of whatever grog is in that medieval canteen, are some pretty decent previews for what the rest of the series has in store."

    More here, including some preview material.

    Sapkowski isn’t involved in this, it was all CD Project RED, the video game company that licensed the first book. I don’t know if that will make it good or bad, but the books were really cool.

    It’s a cool setting, the old Eastern European myths that fairy tales came from provide a rich background for monsters and settings. If you haven’t read any of the books, the official translations are excellent. The Last Wish was the first one, a collection of short stories that basically lays out the whole world. It’s good stuff.
