It looks like Warcraft isn’t the only revered fantasy video game that will be getting the big screen treatment as SDC, the production company behind The Mummy franchise, will be creating a live-action adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski’s The Witcher, according to Platige.
In The Witcher, “Geralt the witcher, is a monster hunter with superhuman abilities. He is a creature suspended between two worlds – the human and the magical.”
The site writes that the film will be based, “… on themes from the short stories ‘The Witcher’ and ‘Lesser Evil’ from ‘The Last Wish’ collection.” They also write that the first movie will be the beginning of a new series. The books will be adapted by Thania St. John (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) and the studio is eyeing 2017 for a release year.
