‘Game Of Thrones’ Prequel Series More Likely Than Spinoff; Season 8 Could Be Longer
The Movie God   |  

Game Of Thrones Season 6.3 young Ned Stark

We’re speeding toward the end of Game of Thrones (*sniffle*), and that’s something we just have to accept (knock it off, you promised yourself you wouldn’t cry). But while the end of the main series begins to come into view, anyone who has been paying attention knows that this is more than likely not the end of our time in Westeros and the surrounding areas.

For a while now we’ve been hearing about the potential for a spinoff series, which would focus on other stories set in other times. Those familiar with author George R.R. Martin‘s “A Song of Ice and Fire” world know there’s an incredible amount of history there, much of which would make for some great TV. HBO’s president of programming Casey Bloys talked about this recently, saying it would more likely be a prequel series than a spinoff. He also revealed that season eight of the current show, the final season, could end up being a little longer than previously believed.

See what he had to say below.

George R.R. Martin Announces ‘Wild Cards’ TV Series
The Movie God   |  

Wild Cards

Once upon a time, when Game of Thrones was still new, it was reported that a movie based on another one of “A Song of Ice and Fire” author George R.R. Martin‘s works, Wild Cards, was in the works through Syfy Films, the joint venture of Syfy and Universal Pictures. But the years past and nothing came of it.

Wild Cards is a massive alternate history superhero shared universe, consisting of standalone novels, anthologies, comics, games, and more, from Martin, Melinda Snodgrass, and many others. So trying to find a single movie in all of that was an understandably tricky task. Now Martin has announced that a new attempt at adapting the property is in the works, this time as a TV series.

Book Review: A Knight Of The Seven Kingdoms By George R.R. Martin
Olympus Athens   |  

A Knight Of The Seven Kingdoms Header

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms (A Song of Ice and Fire)
Hardcover | Kindle Edition | Audible
Written by George R.R. Martin
Illustrated by Gary Gianni
Bantam Press
Release Date: October 6th, 2015

Dunk was a squire turned knight 100 years before the events in A Game of Thrones. He had just buried his hedge knight before striking out to seek his fortune (or at least a steady roof and meal). He encounters Egg, a weird little bald boy who pushes to become his squire. After naming himself Ser Duncan the Tall (rumored to be related to Brienne of Tarth), they head to a tourney at Ashford Castle, where Dunk has one shot to win or lose his armor, thus ending his short, knightly career. The tourney has competitions between such names as Targaryen, Tully, Lannister, and Baratheon. How could he possibly compete? To top off everything, he gets himself in serious hot water for being chivalrous, plus Egg has a giant secret. And that is just the beginning of A Knight Of The Seven Kingdoms by George R.R. Martin.

More below (a few spoilers if you haven’t read yet and plan to).

Pilot Script For George R.R. Martin Werewolf Story ‘The Skin Trade’ Ordered By Cinemax
The Movie God   |  

George R.R. Martin's The Skin Trade

Another TV show based on the work of George R.R. Martin could be on the way. The author has announced that Cinemax has ordered a pilot script for a potential series based on Martin’s werewolf noir novel The Skin Trade.

Cinemax is a sister company to HBO, who produces the megahit adaptation of Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” books Game of Thrones, so more shows based on his work within the same family makes a lot of sense.

Martin shared the news himself on his personal blog, and you can see what he had to say about the project below.
