Wizard’s First Rule – Raimi fills lead roles
Craig Horner and Bridget Regan will star in Sam Raimi’s syndicated series Wizard’s First Rule that launches this autumn in the USA. The series is based on Terry Goodkind’s epic fantasy series The Sword of Truth and will be shown in hour-long weekly instalments. Craig Horner will play woodsman Richard Cypher and Bridget Regan will plays Kahlan. The series will be produced in New Zealand with Robert Tapert, Joshua Donen, Ned Nalle and John Shiban working with Raimi.
Wizard’s First Rule is the first book in Terry Goodkind’s The Sword of Truth series.
Richard Cypher holds the fate of three nations in his hands, he must learn the Wizard’s First Rule to achieve his goals. The heart hounds are stalking the humans, blood sucking flies are abound and nowhere is safe. Magic makes love stronger and despair harder.
Terry Goodkind has created a concise, intelligent book that is believable from the start. This is fantasy that is definitely aimed at the adult rather than the child and some chapters do contain quite graphic paragraphs of a sexual or violent nature.
