Cursed: The Sword is Nimue's Destiny; Arthur Has Something to Prove
Netflix's Cursed brings the world of writer/artist Frank Miller (The Dark Knight Returns) and writer/producer Tom Wheeler's (Puss In Boots) work to life, reimagining the Arthurian legend through the eyes of Katherine Langford's Nimue beginning Friday, July 17. Following up on last week's release of the official trailer as well as a slew of preview images, the streaming service is offering viewers a mini profile video of the teenage heroine with the mysterious gift who is destined to become the powerful (and tragic) Lady of the Lake. Following that, we get a better look at mercenary and unexpected ally Arthur (Devon Terrell), who will aid Nimue on her quest to find Merlin (Gustaf Skarsgård). Finally, we get some straight-forward and blunt advice to keep in mind when calling upon the Hidden:
Cursed is a coming-of-age story whose themes are familiar to our own time: the obliteration of the natural world, religious terror, senseless war, and finding the courage to lead in the face of the impossible. Jon East (Killing Eve), Zetna Fuentes (One Life to Live), and Daniel Netthiem (The Hunter) are dividing directorial duties, with Fuentes executive producing the first two episodes of the 10-episode series, and Wheeler serving as writer and showrunner. Miller and Wheeler will executive produce, with Alex Boden (Sense8) producing and Silenn Thomas serving as co-executive producer.
Netflix's Cursed also stars Devon Terrell (Barry), Gustaf Skarsgård (Westworld, Vikings), Peter Mullan (Ozark), Lily Newmark (Temple, Sex Education), Shalom Brune-Franklin (The State, Our Girl), Daniel Sharman (Fear the Walking Dead, Medici), Sebastian Armesto (Poldark, Broadchurch), Emily Coates (Flack), Catherine Walker (Versailles, The Delinquent Season), Billy Jenkins (The Crown, Holmes & Watson, Humans), Bella Dayne (Humans, Troy: Fall of a City), and more.
