No word yet on when the series will land on Netflix.

After becoming the breakout star of 13 Reasons Why - in which she was so good that the teen drama kept finding excuses to bring her dead character back in season 2 - Langford has been cast in the Frank Miller Netflix series, Cursed. This is apparently the first time the same creative team will be writing a book and the adapted TV series version simultaneously, which will allow Miller and Wheeler to explore their characters from the book in more detail on screen.

Coming from Miller and Tom Wheeler, the show is a new spin on the Arthurian Legends that center on a teenage girl, Nimue, a figure from the King Arthur stories that rarely takes center stage.

Cursed is being executive produced by Miller, Wheeler, Silenn Thomas (300, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For), and Zetna Fuentes (Jessica Jones, Ray Donovan), the latter of whom will direct the first two episodes. YA is not a genre I would expect for Miller to dabble in, though the comic book writer has made some recent efforts to distance himself from his former nihilistic and brutal style.

Mac Miller Was Reportedly Dead for Hours Before His Body Was Found
It is believed he died from an overdose but his death certificate states the cause of death is still unknown listed as "deferred". A small amount of white powder was found and police think that the house was cleaned to remove evidence of drugs.

"I have always been entranced by the mythological Arthur story - and by Nimue, in particular", Miller said in a statement when the book was announced.

"It can be interpreted in any number of ways - from a delightful children's story, as in The Sword in the Stone, to a terrifying interpretation like Excalibur". I inherited a collection of antique children's books from my mother, and I've always wanted to have a crack at it myself.

Are you excited to see Langford join Cursed? She will already be familiar to Netflix audiences, having received a Golden Globe nomination for her work in the series 13 Reasons Why.
