According To THE WITCHER Director, We Will Learn Who Plays Geralt Relatively Soon

The Witcher's pre-production phase is coming to an end, as one of the directors of the adaptation has confirmed that we will learn the name of an actor who plays the main hero, Geralt within three months!

The Witcher series was officially announced last May and not much has been revealed to us about the upcoming adaptation of Sapkowski's body of work since that moment. Screenwriter Lauren S. Hissrich has already finished working on the pilot episode and Netflix has a plan to adapt the first two books, Sword of Destiny and The Last Wish. Sean Daniel, Jason Brown, Jarek Sawko and Tomek Bagiński are producing the series.
 
According to Bagiński, who's not only producing The Witcher, but will also direct at least one episode of the show, we should learn who will play The Witcher's protagonist Geralt of Rivia within three months.It's great news, as the series is expected to start filming this Fall mostly in Poland, Eastern and Central Europe. The fact that the producers are finalizing the casting decisions means that the pre-production phase is coming to an end.
 
Bagiński is a Polish illustrator, animator and director. His Platige Image has created cinematics for CD Projekt Red's The Witcher game series, Wonder Woman’s prologue sequence, Ambition, a collaboration between Platige Image and European Space Agency, and many more. Between 1999 and 2002, Bagiński was working on his short film debut, The Cathedral, which has won the first prize at SIGGRAPH, the biggest festival of animation and special effects, and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film in 2003.

The witcher Geralt, a mutated monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.
