Game Of Thrones author confirms new movie adaptation starring Dave Bautista

Game Of Thrones author confirms new movie adaptation starring Dave Bautista

Filming wrapped only a few weeks ago.

Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin has offered an update on the development of a movie inspired by one of his short stories, and it will star Milla Jovovich and Dave Bautista.

Bautista has previously stated that he hopes his acting career isn't defined by his tenure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, though he's thankful for that opportunity to play Drax for the last decade. “Honestly, I could give a f*ck [about being a movie star],” he said in an interview last year. “I don't care about the spotlight, I don't care about fame. I just want to be a better actor.” In Knock at the Cabin, the newest horror from director M. Night Shyalaman, his performance as the softly spoken Leonard was "revelatory."

Check out the trailer for Marvel's Wolverine, from developer Insomniac Games, below:

Just to ensure we're on the same page (pun not intended), this latest adaptation is nothing to do with the A Song of Ice and Fire universe. Directed by Paul W. S. Anderson, In the Lost Lands is another fantasy from Martin but centres on a small cast of characters who are set on an impossible crusade.

"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," read Deadline's report on the movie. "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."

In a blog post, Martin revealed that In the Lost Lands wrapped only a few weeks ago, and due to the volume of special effects that will feature, it won't leave post-production for a while yet. "In the Lost Lands likely won’t be appearing at your local cinema until some time in 2024. We are also hoping to do a tie-in graphic novel, which will include both my original story (quite short, at 6,000 words or so) and the larger, darker, more expansive world of the film," he said. Lots to look forward to, then.
