Netflix has decided to premiere The Witcher this upcoming fall! Thanks to Variety for the news!

Netflix new live-action series based on “The Witcher” will launch in the company’s fourth quarter, which runs from October to December, the company’s chief content officer noted in an earnings call this week.

Netflix CCO Ted Sarandos was responding to a question about Neflix 2019 line-up when he brought up the timing for the show, which is based on a series of books made internationally popular through successful video game adaptations.

“Well, definitely in the third quarter, we’ve got new episodes and new seasons of some of our most loved and most watched shows on Netflix, ‘Stranger Things,’ ‘Casa de Papel,’ ‘Orange Is the New Black,’ ’13 Reasons Why,’ ‘Elite,’ which was a big hit for us right out of Spain, a new season from Ryan Murphy of ‘The Politician,’ a brand new show on Netflix that we think our audiences are going to love,” he said. “And then you start seeing later in the fourth quarter some of our bigger film investments coming through like ‘Irishman,’ like ‘6 Underground’ and also a big new original series that we’re currently shooting in Hungary called ‘The Witcher,’ that is an enormous European IP, very popular game and Book IP, that we think is going to make a really fun global series.”

Netflix gained 9.6 million streaming customers in the first quarter of 2019 — ahead of projections and a quarterly record — but a price hike in the U.S. and other countries is slowing its momentum going into Q2.

News hit in September that Cavill would be taking on the role of Geralt of Rivia (the titular Witcher in both the video games and books). Season 1 of “The Witcher” will feature eight episodes, each running about an hour.

Variety broke the news that Lauren Schmidt Hissrich was signing on as executive producer and showrunner in December. She previously wrote and co-executive produced the Marvel superhero dramas “The Defenders” and “Daredevil” for Netflix, along with Starz’s “Power.” She is represented by UTA.Since starting on the process, Hissrich has been very open on Twitter about the process of creating the show. She noted on Wednesday that “we’ve been busy” when Netflix dropped the short video. Earlier this month, she said she’s only done two sets of revisions on the pilot since it was written.
“The Witcher” is a fantasy series from Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. It details the adventures of Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter who battles creatures from Slavic lore. The stories were adapted into a popular role-playing game series by developer CD Projekt Red.

Collider does this short interview with Henry talking about the filming of Mission: Impossible – Fallout!

Undoubtedly one of the best films of 2018 is Mission: Impossible – Fallout. It’s an action masterpiece, plain and simple, but also one of the best (if not the best) Mission: Impossible films yet. Writer/director Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise took an epic approach to their Rogue Nation follow-up, but also married that with an intensely intimate character focus. The result is an astounding and compelling film from start to finish.

And one of the highlights of this incredible movie is Henry Cavill’s performance as Walker. The character is a bit of an enigma when he’s first introduced, performing insane stunts right alongside Cruise, all the while you’re not exactly sure how it’s all going to play out in the end. This was by both design and necessity, as McQuarrie has been upfront about the fact that the Walker character evolved significantly during production. The end result is one of the franchise’s most intimidating and memorable characters.

In concert with the Blu-ray and DVD release of Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Collider recently got the chance to take part in a short email interview with Cavill about his work on the film. The actor was gracious enough to discuss what made the filming experience with McQuarrie unique and how they went about shooting that iconic bathroom fight sequence.

Check out the full (but admittedly brief) interview below, and for much more on the film click here for our exclusive in-depth interviews with McQuarrie. Mission: Impossible – Fallout is now available on Digital HD, Blu-ray, and DVD.

Christopher McQuarrie has said that your character evolved during filming. How much did Walker change from when you first signed on to what we see onscreen, and how did you guys know when you’d hit upon the “right” version of the character?

HENRY CAVILL: It’s difficult for me to quantify how much the character changed, aside from saying “a lot”. The whole process was an evolution and an improvement upon yesterday’s work. That was one of my favourite things about working with McQ. The script was very much alive and he was constantly, day and night, improving every aspect of it.

Were any alternate endings or fates considered for Walker?

CAVILL: I’m sure they were considered! But the joy of it being a Mission: Impossible movie is, that there is always a way for something other than what was assumed to have happened, to happen. One just has to look carefully and you’ll see.

What was the process of training for, preparing, and shooting the bathroom sequence, which is now an all-timer action scene?

CAVILL: Wade Eastwood and his team (Eastwood Action Stunts) put the fight together over the course of shooting early in the movie. Tom and I had slightly different schedules so we worked with each other’s respective doubles for training purposes and then with Liang Yang directly as well because he was actually the guy who would be giving us a hiding! We trained and got the fight choreography and the various stunts drilled into our muscle memory during any moments that we could get away from the shooting schedule.

Overall the bathroom fight took 4 weeks to shoot, which, for a scene as intense as that, definitely felt uncomfortably long.

Best memory was when Tom and I finally confessed to each other how much pain we were in. Pretty sure that was the very last day of shooting the fight!

You’ve worked on some massive movies, but how did the making of Mission: Impossible – Fallout differ from your previous experiences?

CAVILL: Well, there were the numerous near death experiences that gave this one a bit more tickle than the others.

Variety shares that Henry’s film Nomis has been bought for distribution!

Saban Films has acquired U.S. distribution rights to David Raymond’s directorial debut “Nomis,” starring Henry Cavill, Ben Kingsley, and Alexandra Daddario.

The L.A. Film Festival selected “Nomis” as its closing night film on Sept. 28 at the ArcLight Hollywood Cinerama Dome. The showing was the world premiere for “Nomis,” which follows American police trapping an online predator, only to realize the depth of his crimes goes far beyond anything they had anticipated. As new leads emerge and the case unravels, Cavill’s character teams with a local vigilante (Kingsley) in pursuit of vengeance.

The thriller also stars Stanley Tucci, Minka Kelly, and Nathan Fillion. Raymond wrote the script, and also produced alongside Robert Ogden Barnum, Arise Pictures’ Chris Pettit, Buffalo Gals’ Jeff Beesley, and Rick Dugdale.

Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley said, “This is a beautifully crafted tension-filled thriller with a cast that, undeniably, our audiences will love. ‘Nomis’ is a fun and entertaining ride and we’re very excited to be onboard.”

Saban Films’ recent titles also include “The Super,” starring Val Kilmer; “Between Worlds,” starring Nicolas Cage; Gerard Butler’s “The Vanishing”; “The Yellow Birds,” starring Tye Sheridan, Alden Ehrenreich, Toni Collette, Jason Patric, Jack Huston, and Jennifer Aniston; “Small Town Crime,” starring John Hawkes and Octavia Spencer; and “Never Grow Old,” starring John Cusack and Emile Hirsch.

Bromiley and Jonathan Saba negotiated the “Nomis” deal for Saban Films, along with CAA on behalf of filmmakers. Fortitude International is handling international rights.
