Milla Jovovich Will Lead In the Lost Lands Based on George R.R. Martin Stories

2 February 2015 5:02 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

If you couldn’t get enough of George R.R. Martin on the big screen over the weekend with the IMAX showings of Game of Thrones, the author’s work is heading to theaters once again. According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision blog, a few of Martin’s short stories are being turned into a movie called In the Lost Lands, and Milla Jovovich is set to star. The title comes from one of the stories, originally published in 1982, which is being intertwined with 1976’s “The Lonely Songs of Laren Dorr” and 1977’s “Bitterblooms.” Interestingly, not all of these tales seem to be of likeminded fantasy. While the first two involve familiar elements to Got fans, like sorcery and dragons, the last contains space travel. It’s not entirely clear from the initial announcement, but I’m assuming Jovovich will play a role mashed together from main characters from each of these three stories, even »

'Mortdecai' Director & 'Spider-Man' Screenwriter David Koepp Thinks There Needs To Be More Spidey Movies

2 February 2015 2:32 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

At one time, David Koepp was the noted screenwriter behind the first entry in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy, Steven Spielberg's "War Of The Worlds," and he got a credit on David Fincher's "Panic Room." But he also has his fingerprints on "Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull," "Premium Rush," and, more recently, the big box office flop, "Mortdecai." Still, his dalliance in the world of Marvel does mean he has some insight into how he'd approach the character, particularly now that the series seems to be in trouble at Sony. Speaking recently with Empire, Koepp shared some of those ideas. Now, it should be said, he readily admits he's speaking as if money isn't an object, but his plan to fix Spider-Man? More movies. His concept basically is that there would be a few different iterations of the character all at once, each focusing »

Jovovich Joins "Lost Lands" Fantasy

2 February 2015 2:08 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Milla Jovovich is in final negotiations and Justin Chatwin ("Shameless," "War of the Worlds") is already set to star in the fantasy-adventure "In the Lost Lands" which will be based on short stories by "Game of Thrones" author George R.R. Martin.

Filmmaker Constantin Werner ("The Pagan Queen") is slated to helm from a script he adapted. The film will interconnect three female-centric Martin short stories into one narrative.

One follows the desperate queen of a mountain city who 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. What she doesn’t realize is that the fulfillment of her wish will come at a terrible price.

The second follows warrior girl Sharra who must fight a dragon that serves as the gatekeeper of seven worlds to reunite with her lost lover Kaydar. On the way »
