From Platige Image Their will be a movie based on the short stories of Geralt of Rivia(The Last Wish, Lesser Evil). Even though I would much rather have an HBO mini series. The director is Tomasz Baginski who was nominated for an Oscar for the short film "The Cathedral"

There is a Polish movie that was made a while back. Its not very good. So I hope this one is.

Also, please cast Mads Mikkelsen as Geralt. Please!

Maads would be the perfect choice.

He is a badass actor, definitely looks the part, and has played Witcher-type roles in the past.

Since we are talking about Mads Mikkelsen I just wanted to say that Valhalla Rising is fucking awesome. That's actually all I had to say. Also here's a trailer:

@castiel: WOW.... so that trailer shows the entire movie. Like, pretty much the entire ending and every other piece of action at least.
