VICTORIAN LADIES ARE VERY DANGEROUS IN THE NEVERS FANTASY SERIES TEASER! AMAZON TURNING HOHLBEIN'S FANTASY CLASSIC THE GRYPHON INTO EPIC TV SERIES

 THE GRYPHON TO BECOME 
AMAZON'S FANTASY TV SERIES
The Gryphon will be a six episode series
After the success Netflix had with Barbarians, Amazon is looking to find their own German hit series, so they are adapting Wolfgang's Hohlbein's popular novel THE GRYPHON (Der Grif) into a six episode show with Erol Yesilkaya and Sebastian Marka as show runners. On their way to adulthood, the three outsiders Mark, Memo and Becky come into contact with a fantastic world called the Black Tower. There, the Griffin, a world devouring monster, has been mercilessly plundering and subjugating all living creatures for centuries. And the three friends, of all people, seem destined to end this reign of terror. As you probably remember, his Hagen von Tronje historical novel has also been set for adaptation.

    1. If disturbing is ability to spit fire or something I wouldn't really mind :) Hope it is not turning into a rat or something equally horrid.

  3. These both sound pretty good, but the first one for the win. The still shot of the teaser with the woman holding an umbrella reminds me of a ridiculous fight I witnessed once. "Back up or I will shove this umbrella up your butt and then open it!" I'll have to circle back on my phone so I can listen to it with sound and find out if that's what she says!

  4. The Nevers sounds interesting. I am wondering why it was only women who were "touched." Hmmm.
