Netflix has announced the cast members for their forthcoming original drama series “Cursed” which will begin production later this month and is being produced by Frank Miller and Tom Wheeler.
The series is a re-imagining of the Arthurian legend, told through the eyes of the young woman who would become the Lady of the Lake. The story explores themes like obliteration of the natural world, religious zeal and oppression, senseless war and finding the courage to lead in the face of the impossible.
Katherine Langford (“13 Reasons Why”), Devon Terrell (“Barry”), Gustaf Skarsgard (“Westworld”), Peter Mullan (“Ozark”), Lily Newmark (“Sex Education”), Shalom Brune-Franklin (“The State”), Daniel Sharman (“Fear the Walking Dead”), Sebastian Armesto (“Broadchurch”), Emily Coates (“Flack”), Catherine Walker (“Versailles”) and Billy Jenkins (“The Crown”).
The project has been given a ten-episode order and will be based on Miller and Wheeler’s upcoming illustrated book of the same name which is being published this Fall. Zetna Fuentes (“Ray Donovan,” “Jessica Jones”) is set to direct and serve as an executive producer on the first two episodes, while Wheeler will serve as showrunner.
