The Witcher Netflix series begins production.
"Production has begun on a new Netflix television series based on Andrzej Sapkowski's Witcher Saga. It has nothing to do with video game maker CD Projekt Red."

What exactly is new? This is old news.

Platige's Tomek Baginski, who directed all three Witcher video game intro cinematics, will be involved as one of the directors.

BoboTheMighty May 17th, 2017 14:42

Eh, maybe Sapkowski will get lucky and score some royalties this time. :P

But seriously the old Polshow will be hard to beat. Had quite a few chuckles as I remember

Oh no, I smell a Game of Thrones clone coming along.

I'm guessing they called my fellow Dane Mads for this role ;)

While possible it doesn't have to be so since Sapkowski's style is very different from Martin's

I hope it has the same or higher quality as games of throne (iff it is a games of throne clone).

BoboTheMighty May 18th, 2017 02:44

Suprised no one made Hexxxer, based on first game so far.
They'd even have to throw out half the scenes, Geralt sure gets around. ;)

Hell YEAH! :biggrin:

Speaking of butts and boobs, whose butts and boobs you would like to see? :lol:

I am sure the ladies here can chime in on the man butt and boobs they like to see but I will make go at the women!

Yennefer - Kate Beckinsale, Morena Baccarin or Eve Green
Triss - Vittoria Puccini
Ciri - Emma watson!

Og what the feck,

Geralt - Mads Mikkelsen or Viggo Mortensen

Lemonhead May 19th, 2017 14:52

I don't need to see her boobs&butt or anything but I think Jennifer Connelly would be perfect for Yennefer.

I'd go with Mads for Geralt.

Sean Bean should play Vesemir since he dies ;)

zahratustra May 19th, 2017 23:03

yeah, Mads would make a perfect Geralt. I would also LOVE to see Emma as Ciri. Still thinking about Jennifer but I would definitively like a natural redhead in Triss' role.

I'm pretty excited about the Netflix production. They can fuck it up, but they could also make something great about an already successful story. E.g., with Fargo, the series after the movies were amongst the best stuff ever produced.
Of course hoping for GoT level quality. I guess they'll need some more cgi than GoT, which (I always read) is the expensive part.

vraj66268 May 20th, 2017 07:50

All the best for the series :)

Listen to Affirmation Audio for Better Living

vurt May 24th, 2017 01:14

Can't wait for this. I even watched the polish show haha..

Fargo is indeed great, one of my favorite TV shows of all time. This season has been fantastic so far.

lostforever August 7th, 2018 13:03

Apparently Henry Cavill wants to play Geralt in Netflix's Adaptation of The Witcher!

He has apparently played the game twice and read the books!

For some reason I can't picture Henry Cavill as dude with his head phones on playing Witcher 3, but what do I know!

Anyway I am not sure if he will make a good Geralt but you never know.


Darth Tagnan August 7th, 2018 13:06

That sounds like a terrible choice. Mads Mikkelsen is the way to go, really.

ChienAboyeur August 7th, 2018 13:21

No risks they fall to the diversity brigade.

No. Geralt is not supposed to be Hollywood cute plastic nor a perfect face alien from another planet.

No. Doesn't look mutant but sociopath.


The character needs charm, no cuteness and a bit of geriatrics. That makes either Jim Caviezel or Vincent Cassel perfect for the role.

Silence will fall and Pandorica will open.
