LOS ANGELES, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Actress Milla Jovovich is in final negotiations to star in the film adaptation of author George R.R. Martin's short stories Lost Lands.

The film is also set to star Shameless actor Justin Chatwin and will be penned and helmed by German director Constantin Werner.

Lost Lands will interconnect three female-centric short stories -- "The Lonely Songs of Laren Dorr," "In the Lost Lands," "Bitterblooms" -- which Martin wrote before the A Song of Fire and Ice series, which was adapted for television by HBO as Game of Thrones.

Jovovich will star as sorceress Gray Alys, who travels to a wasteland called the Lost Lands to be granted the ability to be turned into a werewolf. The gift, however, comes at a high price.

"It's a thrill to have her be a part of this, and I will look forward to seeing her bring Gray Alys to life," Martin wrote on his website. "Maybe I will be so inspired that I'll finally write those other Gray Alys stories... but no, not until I finish A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE, calm down, friends."

The feature film will start shooting in Germany in the last quarter of 2015.
