MOVIE NEWS – Dolph Lundgren has revealed that he is working on an exceptional series for Netflix.
The world of The Witcher is growing, thanks to various spinoffs. It looks like one of the upcoming series will star Dolph Lundgren. Speaking to Swedish publication Aftonbladet recently (after Collider), Lundgren said that he feels better than ever. He is happy to have made an enormous step forward in his fight against cancer. The actor only recently revealed that he was diagnosed with cancer eight years ago. He has been quietly battling the disease and has since had six tumours removed. Lundgren says she is now feeling so well that she is back working in South Africa. And not just on anything: he’s filming a Netflix series that’s part of The Witcher franchise.
Lundgren did not share any further details about the series he is part of. According to Collider, it could be a spinoff focusing on the Rats, a group of thieves that will debut in the upcoming third season of The Witcher with Henry Cavill.
We previously reported that a spinoff following The Rats was in the works at Netflix, with the working title Riff Raff.
According to the logline, the spinoff follows six teenage thieves who plan the ultimate heist. Netflix previously released an animated spinoff, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, in 2021. Another animated movie is also planned for the streaming platform. Meanwhile, a spinoff limited series titled The Witcher: Blood Origin has expanded the live-action world. This premiered late last year. We also previously reported that a more family-friendly animated series spinoff was also in development at Netflix.
Dolph Lundgren is more active than ever
Lundgren, who starred memorably in films such as Rocky IV, has recently appeared in Wanted Man, The Best Man and Section Eight. He was also a voice actor in the animated hit sequel, Minions: The Rise of Gru. Lundgren can also be seen in the superhero sequel Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, which will be released in cinemas this year after several delays. The actor will return as Gunner Jensen in the upcoming sequel to The Expendables 4.
Here he reunites with his old pal Sylvester Stallone; the two actors also reunite for an episode of Stallone’s Paramount+ reality show The Family Stallone, which has just been renewed for a second season.
All the more remarkable in light of how far Lundgren has come in his fight against cancer. He told In Depth With Graham Bensinger that he was predicted to live two to three years at one point in his battle. Things looked grim before he sought a second opinion with a more optimistic outlook. Since then, things are looking much better for Lundgren, the actor told Graham Bensinger.
