In the Lost Lands is one of George RR Martin’s short stories, which first appeared in the 1982 anthology book Amazons II. The author is no stranger to seeing his written work come to life on screen, following the success of Game of Thrones along with his novella Nightflyers which was turned into a series on Syfy. Now In the Lost Lands will receive its feature film debut – and Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about the upcoming movie.

Writing on his Not A Blog website, George RR Martin has described his excitement at the project.

He said: “In the Lost Lands was one of my earliest fantasy stories (most of my work in the 70s was science fiction), the first tale of the mysterious Gray Alys, an enigmatic sorceress who would sell you anything you might desire… though her customers soon learned that you buy from her at your peril…

“And now the story is coming to the big screen. Paul W.S. Anderson, director of Monster Hunter, Pompeii, and several Resident Evils, will helm the film.

“Milla Jovovich will star as Gray Alys, with Dave Bautista of Guardians of the Galaxy as Boyce, who leads her into the Lost Lands.

“German film director Constantin Werner, who first optioned the story and tried to get the film made for years, will be among the producers.

When is In the Lost Lands out?

In the Lost Lands currently does not have a release date, since it is so recently announced.

Express.co.uk will update this with news of the release date once it is announced.

However, even without a release date some have already started to speculate about whether there will be a sequel to the film – but given In the Lost Lands was only one short book, they may be disappointed.

When it came to the Game of Thrones HBO series, the creators David Benioff and DB Weiss were so fast at making the show, they caught up with George’s books and were forced to make their own story for the final two series.

Sadly, some fans were not too keen on their plot deviations, and there could be some similar concerns about Gray Alys.

George said: “No doubt my long-time fans all recall the twelve classic tales I wrote about Gray Alys and her customers, which were later collected in the…

“WHOA, WHOA, wait a second. That’s all wrong. Another of those pesky alternate world memories.

“No, truth to tell, I meant to write a whole series of Gray Alys stories, I really did, I even began a second and penned a few of the opening pages… but one day I put it aside and I never got back to it.

“In the end I only wrote one Gray Alys story… And who knows? If the movie is a big hit, maybe there will be sequels, and Gray Alys will finally get her series after all.”

George added he “loved the character” and he had secrets and a complex backstory to reveal in the unwritten stories he planned, but never got round to.

This will spark more concern in fans that we will end up in a similar position to The Winds of Winter, which is the sixth novel in the A Song of Ice and Fire series which is yet to appear.

Fans have been waiting more than 10 years for this book, and if Gray Alys will be a success, it will not only mean fans will have a second book to wait for but also the new Gray Alys book will distract from George finally finishing The Winds of Winter and its sequel, A Dream of Spring.

Who is in the cast of In the Lost Lands?

Milla Jovovich is slated to star as titular character Gray Alys in the new film, with Dave Bautista to play Boyce.

However no further cast members for the film – which will be directed by Paul WS Anderson – have yet been announced.

What is In the Lost Lands about?

The synopsis according to Variety reads: “In the movie, a queen, desperate to fulfil her love, makes a daring play: she hires the sorceress Gray Alys (Milla Jovovich), a woman as feared as she is powerful.

“Sent to the ghostly wilderness of the Lost Lands, Alys and her guide, the drifter Boyce (Dave Bautista), must outwit and outfight man and demon in this fable that explores the nature of good and evil, debt and fulfilment, love and loss.”
