Announced just last month, the next movie from Paul W.S. Anderson (Mortal Kombat, Event Horizon, Resident Evil, Monster Hunter) is titled In the Lost Lands, with Milla Jovovich and Dave Bautista attached to star. FilmNation launched the project at the European Film Market, and Deadline reports that international rights to the movie have sold out.
Deadline reports that FilmNation has booked “a string of multi-million dollar pre-sales for the fantasy-adventure movie,” with big deals closing “for the UK (Studiocanal), Germany/Switzerland (Constantin), France (Metropolitan Film Export), Australia/New Zealand (Roadshow Distribution),” and more. The project is “now fully-financed out of international.”
In the movie, written by Anderson and Constantin Werner…
“A queen, desperate to obtain the gift of shape shifting, makes a daring play: she hires the sorceress Gray Alys (Jovovich), a woman as feared as she is powerful. 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 is said to explore the nature of good and evil, debt and fulfillment, love and loss.”
In the Lost Lands adapts “Game of Thrones” creator George R.R. Martin‘s short story.
