Dave Bautista's next project has been revealed.
Per Variety, the Guardians of the Galaxy actor has joined the cast of 'In the Lost Lands,’ an adaptation of George R.R. Martin's short story. The author is perhaps best known for his 'A Song of Ice and Fire' novels, which served as the source material for HBO's hit series, 'Game of Thrones.'
Paul W.S. Anderson ('Mortal Kombat,' 'Resident Evil,' & 'Alien vs. Predator') will be directing the film, while Milla Jovovich, also of the 'Resident Evil' franchise will be co-starring alongside the WWE Legend.
The movie will follow a queen, desperate to obtain the gift of shapeshifting, who makes a daring play: She hires the sorceress Gray Alys (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 (Bautista), must outwit and outfight man and demon in a fable that explores the nature of good and evil, debt and fulfillment, love and loss.
