Another DC star could join Netflix’s Witcher universe. According to insider Daniel Richtman, the streaming service is interested in Jason Momoa for a lead role in the prequel series The Witcher: Blood Origin.
The series is said to chart the origins of the very first Witcher, and the events that lead to the pivotal “conjunction of the spheres,” when the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one. The show has been ordered as a limited series with six episodes. It was first reported in July that Netflix had ordered a prequel series.
Richtman revealed a casting log for the series, which shows Momoa has been eyed for the role of the first Witcher. As of now, there have been no reports of whether the Aquaman star has been offered the role since pre-production is still in its early stages.
Declan de Barra, who worked as a writer for The Witcher, is set to serve as the series’ showrunner. He, along with Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, Jason F. Brown, Sean Daniel, Tomek Baginski, Jarek Sawko, will executive produce. Additionally, Andrzej Sapkowski, author of The Witcher book series, will consult on the show. While the release date is unknown, the series is scheduled to begin production in 2021.
