NEW FILM BASED ON THREE SHORT STORIES

February 10, 2015

Myriad Pictures has acquired the rights to combine three previously published short stories by George into a single film.

— “The Lonely Songs of Laren Dorr,”
— “In the Lost Lands,”
— “Bitterblooms.”

“Laren Dorr” was published in 1976, “Bitterblooms” in 1977, “In the Lost Lands” in 1982. Older works that are now moving forward in production, with the exciting news that Myriad Pictures has signed MILLA JOVOVICH to play Gray Alys of the story “In the Lost Lands”

Milla is best known to science fiction fans for her starring turns in FIFTH ELEMENT, RESIDENT EVIL, and ULTRAVIOLET. Constantin tells me she’s a big GAME OF THRONES fan too. It’s a thrill to have her be a part of this, and I will look forward to seeing her bring Gray Alys to life. (Maybe I will be so inspired that I’ll finally write those other Gray Alys stories… but no, not until I finish A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE, calm down, friends).

For more details about IN THE LOST LANDS, check out the reports in the trades:

JUSTIN CHATWIN will also star in the film, a German-Canadian co-production scheduled to film in Germany. More casting to come, of course.

If you would like to read the three original stories, you can find them all in GRRM: A RETROSPECTIVE, also published as DREAMSONGS.
