'Lady Of The Lake' Is "Cursed"

Take a look at the first image from the currently shooting 10-episode, "Cursed" live-action TV series from "Sin City" creator Frank Miller, for streaming on Netflix, based on Miller's upcoming re-imagining of the 'King Arthur' legend, focusing on the 'Lady of the Lake', with Zetna Fuentes directing the first two episodes:

Katherine Langford is 'Nimue', the maiden who was cursed to become the 'Lady of the Lake',  with Devon Terrell, Gustaf SkarsgĂ„rd, Peter Mullan...

...Lily Newmark, Shalom Brune-Franklin, Daniel Sharman, Sebastian Armesto, Emily Coates, Catherine Walker and Billy Jenkins.

"...'Nimue', is a teenage girl with a mysterious gift, destined to become the powerful 'Lady of the Lake'.

"After her mother’s death, she finds an unexpected partner in 'Arthur', a young mercenary, in a quest to find 'Merlin' and deliver an ancient sword.

"Over the course of her journey, Nimue will become a symbol of courage and rebellion against the terrifying 'Red Paladins', and their complicit 'King Uther'..."

"I have always been entranced by the mythological 'Arthur' story," said Miller, "and by 'Nimue', in particular. 

"It can be interpreted in a number of ways — from a delightful children’s story, as in 'The Sword in the Stone', to a terrifying interpretation like 'Excalibur'."

Fall 2019 Simon & Schuster will publish a companion book to the series, written by Tom Wheeler...

...with Miller providing illustrations.
