Henry Cavill Cast In Witcher

Fans of the Witcher games have been fan-casting the titular monster-hunting sorcerer for years now – and now Netflix has confirmed the actor who will play Geralt of Rivia in its upcoming serialised adaptation. Fresh from a stand-out turn in Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Henry Cavill will be saddling up for the epic fantasy series. Fittingly, he's a massive gamer who's previously outed himself as a huge fan of the series. Presumably he’ll be growing his moustache back out to play the grizzled hunter-for-hire - here’s hoping there are no surprise Superman reshoots on the horizon.

While the video games – especially 2015’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – helped to popularize the story, the tale originates in a series of novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The first series on Netflix will consist of eight episodes, with the streaming service’s ‘See What’s Next’ social media account confirming that it will be based primarily on the books. The show’s executive producer Lauren S. Hissrich also tweeted about Cavill’s appointment to the role, writing: “He was my first meeting. I didn’t have writers or scripts yet – just a greenlight and a lot of passion. That was four months ago, and I’ve never forgotten the passion he brought. He IS Geralt. He always has been. I’m so thrilled to welcome HENRY CAVILL to the #Witcher family.”

With the lead now cast, production on Netflix’s Witcher series can’t be too far off – it seems this could be the service’s hopes for a Game of Thrones-style epic fantasy hit, while Amazon pursues its Lord of the Rings show. In the meantime, we’ll be getting stuck back into Wild Hunt – and its two giant expansion packs.

Jack Cunningham (Ben Affleck) once had a life filled with promise. In high school, he was a basketball phenom with a full ride to college, when suddenly, for reasons unknown, he walked away from the game, forfeiting his future. Now years later, Jack is stuck in a meaningless job and drowning in the alcoholism that cost him his marriage and any hope for a better life. When he is asked to coach the basketball team at his alma mater, which has fallen far since his glory days, he reluctantly accepts, surprising no one more than himself. As the boys start to come together as a team and win, Jack may have finally found a reason to confront the demons that have derailed him.
