"CURSED" CAST ANNOUNCED AS PRODUCTION BEGINS ON THE NEW KATHERINE LANGFORD-LED SERIES
Devon Terrell (Barry), Gustaf Skarsgård (Westworld, Vikings), Daniel Sharman (Fear the Walking Dead, Medici), Peter Mullan (Ozark), Lily Newmark (Pin Cushion), Shalom Brune-Franklin (The State, Our Girl), Sebastian Armesto (Poldark, Broadchurch), Emily Coates (Flack), Catherine Walker (Versailles, The Delinquent Season) and Billy Jenkins (The Crown, Holmes & Watson, Humans) join Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why, Love, Simon) in the cast of Cursed.
Zetna Fuentes (Ray Donovan, Jessica Jones, The Deuce, Shameless) will direct and serve as an executive producer on the first two episodes. The series is created and executive produced by Frank Miller (Sin City, 300) and Tom Wheeler (Puss in Boots, The Cape) who is also showrunner and writer. Tom Wheeler will write the companion book Cursed, which Frank Miller will illustrate to be published by Simon & Schuster in Fall 2019. Alex Boden (Sense8, Cloud Atlas) is producer and Silenn Thomas is co-executive producer.
Cursed, based on the upcoming book of the same name, is a re-imagining of the Arthurian legend, told through the eyes of the young woman who would become the Lady of the Lake. Cursed is a coming-of-age story with themes familiar to our own time: the obliteration of the natural world, religious zeal and oppression, senseless war and finding the courage to lead in the face of the impossible.
The series will begin filming in March 2019 in England and Wales.
