So bad you posted it twice.


Also really can't wait fire Witcher on Netflix.

They gotta cast Mads Mikkelsen ffs. If he's not too old for them. Might have to go with a ripped dude.

You think everything will be bad before watching it though. Have a little faith, Mole!

Netflix are probably gonna throw so much money at this show.

Even if it's bad, it would still be amazing to have another fantasy show once GoT ends next year.
Even bad fantasy is entertaining imo.

Wouldn't mind Taylor Kitsch as Geralt. Maybe Jim Caviezel also, or Anson Mount

Don't get me wrong Laughing

I want it to be really good lol, but the fact CDPR are not involved at all makes me skeptical.

Although i feel like basing it on the books is a good move none the less, there's dozens of characters and storyline arcs there which the games don't really go into depth on.

Like Vilgefortz for example.

The guy who does CDPR's cinematics is involved as a director. So that's something. If he can do anything close in live action, then the action will be amazing.
He has the same background as Tim Miller who directed Deadpool, hopefully it'll be just as successful

Didn't know that tbf, guess we'll see. Casting will be interesting tbh and give an idea how much money they are putting into it.

Anyone seen Taboo on Amazon Prime? There seem to be a bunch of Game of Thrones actors in it, Jonathan Pryce, Oona Chaplin, Roger Ashton-Griffiths and it's created by Tom Hardy.

I was going completely off looks lol, although it's a hard character to play tbh in just plain old voice acting that goes further in actual live action.

Reported.


I'm on the Kitsch train now though. Only one who's got the voice and the body. Bean, Mikkelsen and Viggo are all old men and Geralt is Batman physique.

Is the Witcher series confirmed to be live action?

Yeah. They were supposed to make a live action movie. But Netflix has come in and made it a show.

I feel like the movie definitely would have flopped, for various reasons a TV series has a much better chance of succeeding.

100% agreed. It's much more fitting for a tv series. Assuming they can get the effects right and have the money for legit cgi monsters.

Can't wait. Hopefully they'll hire some talented people.

Movies turned to shows usually turn out good. ex: The Sopranos, Mr Robot, 13 Reasons Why

Also the CG company involved made the legendary Witcher 2 opening cinematic.

The director of the cinematics was supposed to make the movie. He's also directing at least one episode according to the article. One episode each season we get. So he's probably the one to set the tone and visual style for the entire show.

Hopefully we get another Tim Miller story of a VFX based director making the transition.

That Witcher 2 cinematic is absolutely incredible. So amazing. Watching that in live action would be amazing.

It just lends so much better to novel style storytelling is probably why I feel that way tbh.

Don't know anything about the Witcher and never played a single minute of any of the games... Yet I will still watch this show. I have too much faith in Netflix not to.
