Cursed Being Adapted For Netflix Original Series
The Lady of the Lake retelling from the King Arthur stories is being adapted for a Netflix original series. Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why) will play the lead as she joins a young Arthur on his quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword. Series to release in 2020.
About the book:
Whosoever wields the Sword of Power shall be the one true King.
But what if the Sword has chosen a Queen?
Nimue grew up an outcast. Her connection to dark magic made her something to be feared in her Druid village, and that made her desperate to leave…
That is, until her entire village is slaughtered by Red Paladins, and Nimue’s fate is forever altered. Charged by her dying mother to reunite an ancient sword with a legendary sorcerer, Nimue is now her people’s only hope. Her mission leaves little room for revenge, but the growing power within her can think of little else.
Nimue teams up with a charming mercenary named Arthur and refugee Fey Folk from across England. She wields a sword meant for the one true king, battling paladins and the armies of a corrupt king. She struggles to unite her people, avenge her family, and discover the truth about her destiny.
But perhaps the one thing that can change Destiny itself is found at the edge of a blade.
With a star-studded and familiar cast, the Netflix Original is sure to get a lot of attention.
Simon & Schuster released the graphic novel to accompany the story on Oct 1.
