Fans of “The Witcher” video game series have something to look forward to in 2017: the stories the games are based on will be adapted for the big screen.

The stories, from Andrzej Sapkowski’s collection The Last Wish, focus on hero Geralt the witcher, a superhuman monster hunter. According to Platige Films, the stories will be adapted by screenwriter Thania St. John and directed by Tomasz Bagiński (The Cathedral).
