In The Lost Lands (D: P. W.S. Anderson) - based on G.R.R. Martin story - S: Jovovich, Bautista

Milla Jovovich is in advanced negotiations to headline Myriad Pictures’ In The Lost Lands adapted from three fantasy adventure short stories by Game Of Thrones’ author George R.R. Martin. It is the first time that the author’s works have been adapted for the big screen outside of HBO’s Game Of Thrones. In The Lost Lands will be directed by German helmer Constantin Werner, who also adapted the stories. The project also stars Justin Chatwin. Production will begin in Germany during the final quarter of this year. Myriad will handle worldwide sales on the German-Canadian co-production, and will introduce the project to buyers at this week’s European Film Market in Berlin. In The Lost Lands is produced by Steve Hoban, Oliver Luer and Nico Bruinsma. Myriad’s Kirk D’Amico will serve as EP on the film.

In The Lost Lands interweaves three story threads. One plot follows a city’s desperate queen who hires sorceress Gray Alys (Jovovich) to travel into the ghostly wasteland called the Lost Lands, to obtain the gift of shape shifting, which comes at a terrible price. Meanwhile, warrior girl Sharra must fight a dragon that serves as the gatekeeper of seven worlds to reunite with her lost lover Kaydar. However, she forgets about her quest after being seduced by a mysterious lord. In the futuristic tale Bitterblooms, a young barbarian girl gets spellbound by a lonely witch in a spacecraft, who shows her beauty and love, which turns out to be a net of lies and deceit.

Here’s a hot one. Resident Evil director Paul W.S. Anderson is teaming with Resident Evil star Milla Jovovich and Dave Bautista (Guardians Of The Galaxy) on fantasy-adventure movie In The Lost Lands, which is based on the short story by Game Of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin.

The movie will follow a queen, desperate to obtain the gift of shape shifting, who makes a daring play: she hires the sorceress Gray Alys (Jovovich), a woman as feared as she is powerful. Sent to the ghostly wilderness of the ‘Lost Lands’, Alys and her guide, the drifter Boyce (Bautista), must outwit and outfight man and demon in a fable that explores the nature of good and evil, debt and fulfillment, love and loss.

FilmNation is launching the project at next week’s virtual EFM. CAA is arranging the film’s financing and will rep domestic rights.

Anderson has written the script. Producers are Jeremy Bolt (Resident Evil), Anderson, Jovovich, Bautista and Jonathan Meisner, through their production company Dream Bros Entertainment, and Constantin Werner.

A previous iteration of the project launched for the Berlin market six years ago but this one has new creative and financial elements. The project is good news for those in the hunt for big-canvas fare at the EFM. Lionsgate’s Eli Roth video game adaptation Borderlands is another in that sphere.

I feel like we're being Uwe Boll'd with these adaptation announcements lately.

This isn't true. HBO's Game of Thrones isn't a "big screen" adaptation. And GRRM's works have been adapted to a theatrical feature before (Nightflyers).

I have no doubt this will be just as good as their other collaborations...
