Netflix Orders Cursed Series from Frank Miller and Tom Wheeler

Frank Miller and Tom Wheeler will team together for Cursed, a new 10-episode project for streaming giant, Netflix.

Here's how Netflix describes the companion TV series: "A reimagining of the Arthurian legend, told through the eyes of Nimue, a teenage heroine with a mysterious gift who is destined to become the powerful (and tragic) Lady of the Lake".

In the story, a 16-year-old Nimue will encounter the young mercenary Arthur while on a quest to deliver an ancient sword to the wizard Merlin, catching up with her soon after the death of her mother. Throughout her journey, she will become a symbol of courage against the complicit King Uther. Wheeler and Miller co-created the story, and will also executive produce the upcoming series.

As for the young adult novel, it will be written by Wheeler and illustrations will be provided by Miller.

"I have always been entranced by the mythological Arthur story - and by Nimue, in particular", Miller said in a statement after the book announcement, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The Cursed illustrated novel is scheduled to be released in late 2019 by Simon & Schuster. "This project is a dream come true". There's a good chance it could even be Netflix's biggest show since Stranger Things, but we'll have to withhold full judgement on that prospect until the full series launches worldwide on April 13. Wheeler, who worked on Trollhunters with Guillermo del Toro and wrote Puss in Boots, is set to write the book. His characters, images, and dark worlds have haunted and delighted me since I was ten years old.

Added Wheeler, "I am honored and humbled to be working with the living legend Frank Miller on Cursed". He is best known for his comic book stories and graphic novels, including Sin City, 300, Ronin, Daredevil: Born Again, and The Dark Knight Returns. He recently completed the script for a live-action Dora the Explorer feature for Paramount. He was a consulting producer on the NBC series Surface, as the creator/executive producer of the critically acclaimed maxi-series Empire, and the creator/executive producer of the superhero drama The Cape for NBC.
