Milla Jovovich and Justin Chatwin have signed on to star in the fantasy adventure In the Lost Lands, based on several short stories written by Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin. Myriad Pictures is handling worldwide sales on the film, and will introduce the project to buyers this week at the European Film Market in Berlin. Here's Myriad Pictures' official plot description for In the Lost Lands, which connects three separate George R.R. Martin stories.
"In one thread, the desperate queen of a city built into a towering mountain hires the sorceress Gray Alys (Jovovich) to travel into the ghostly wasteland called the Lost Lands, to obtain the gift of shape-shifting into a werewolf, but she doesn't realize that the fulfillment of her wish will come 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. During this quest she meets the mysterious lord of a deserted castle, Laren Dorr, who seduces her so completely that she forgets her quest and stays with him, unaware that he is the real gatekeeper. And 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."
German filmaker Constantin Werner (Dead Leaves) is directing and writing the screenplay adaptation, with Steven Hoban, Oliver Lüer and Nico Bruinsma producing, with Myriad's Kirk D'Amico executive producing. The project will be a Germany/Canada co-production, with production scheduled to begin in Germany at the end of this year. Milla Jovovich will next shoot Resident Evil: The Final Chapter this summer before moving on to In the Lost Lands.
