'Game of Thrones' creator George R.R. Martin is a bestselling author of epic fantasy novels. He's also a prolific writer of short stories that have been gathered in a massive collection called 'Dreamsongs Volume I & II'.
Today, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil) is in final talks to star in the fantasy adventure In the Lost Lands, based on three female-driven short stories from 'Dreamsongs'.
Jovovich will star opposite Justin Chatwin (Shameless) for director Constantin Werner (The Pagan Queen), who also wrote the screenplay adaptation.
Myriad Pictures describes the film as follows:
"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."
