Netflix to Produce The Witcher TV Series



Netflix will develop and produce a new show based on The Witcher Saga, the series of eight novels by Andrzej Sapkowski that inspired the hugely popular CD Projekt Red RPG games.

Sapkowski - who does not profit from the game series  - will serve as a creative consultant on the series. “I’m thrilled that Netflix will be doing an adaptation of my stories," he explained in a press release, "staying true to the source material and the themes that I have spent over thirty years writing."

Tomas Baginski - who directed the intro videos for all three Witcher games, as well as the Cyberpunk 2077 teaser trailer - will direct at least one episode per season.

Something tells me Mr. Sapkowski is not really happy with the Witcher games.

I'm guessing a writer is almost never 100$ satisfied with the game or movie based on his book.

And I read that this guy is a total douche about it too. He gave (or sold for a very low price, I don't recall) Projekt Red the rights to the story, and then bitches about how they fucked it up, and that only he can do the story right.

Quite some mixed feelings here. Netflix is doing a good job producing movies and series but at the same time I think it's gonna end up like that AC movie ...
