Roger Zelazny Chronicles of Amber

Walking Dead comic book creator Robert Kirkman will be developing Roger Zelazny‘s epic scifi-fantasy saga Chronicles Of Amber for television.

Kirkman will be adapting Zelazny’s 10-book series with his Skybound Entertainment banner partner Dave Alpert, as well as Vincent Newman Entertainment (We’re the Millers), in what THR reports could be TV’s next Game of Thrones. GoT author George R.R. Martin has often credited Zelazny as one of his biggest inspirations.

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

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.

Ian McShane Game of Thrones Deadwood Screenshot

Deadwood actor, Ian McShane is coming home to HBO! He has been officially cast in Season 6 of Game Of Thrones. Who he will be, is as yet unknown. But it seems a good fit. He already looks like he lives in one of the Seven Kingdoms, although I do feel he would be more at home in the North. Who knows? Maybe he is in the Bran and Hodor storyline, when they return in season 6. We really don’t know much about season 6 yet, but we will give it as we get it. Tune in right here.

More on that and an 8th season below.

George R.R. Martin Loves ‘Ant-Man’ But Says Marvel Has A Villain Issue

Ant-Man header

The odds were stacked against Ant-Man last weekend, but Marvel Studios’ latest film beat the naysayers earning an 80% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but grossed an underwhelming $58 million at the box office – despite being number one – just shy of the $60-$65 million expectations industry experts predicted. Still, James Gunn praised Marvel’s latest, saying it was the best Marvel Studios film since Iron Man, even our very own Adam Frazier liked the film.

Now Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin has taken the time to praise film, and to point out a serious issue that Marvel has that I am sure everyone will agree with. While Martin said Ant-Man was “wholly satisfying,” he says that these films have a serious villain issue. More on the story below.
