Netflix has set the cast for an eight-part adaptation of Leigh Bardugo’s bestselling fantasy novels “Shadow and Bone” and “Six of Crows”. Eric Heisserer (“Bird Box”) is penning the series.
The story focuses on a young orphan soldier (Jessie Mei Li) who uncovers a power that might finally unite her country. But as she struggles to hone her power, dangerous forces plot against her. Thugs, thieves, assassins and saints are at all at war, and it will take more than magic to survive.
Ben Barnes will play General Kirigan, the commander of a magical military elite. Amita Suman, Freddy Carter, Archie Renaux, Kit Young, Sujaya Dasgupta, Danielle Galligan, Daisy Head and Simon Sears co-star.
