The remaining season of Game of Thrones debuts on April 14, however HBO isn’t accomplished with Westeros. It has a prequel present on the way in which, stacked excessive with expertise and set 1000’s of years earlier than Jon or Daenerys or Tyrion or anybody else was born. We don’t have an official title and we don’t have an in depth synopsis, however we do now have a begin date. HBO programming president Casey Bloys advised Entertainment Weekly that filming on the prequel pilot will start early this summer time.
That implies that the prequel, which is rumored to be titled The Long Night, will begin capturing not lengthy after Game of Thrones has aired its sequence finale, making certain some continuity at HBO. We don’t know the place they’re going to shoot, though the percentages are good that HBO will reap the benefits of the manufacturing infrastructure the unique Thrones group developed in Northern Ireland these previous eight seasons.
While we don’t know who they’re enjoying, we do know so much in regards to the forged. Like Game of Thrones, the prequel will function an ensemble, this one led by Naomi Watts (King Kong). Other gamers embody Josh Whitehouse, Naomi Ackie, and Denise Gough and a number of other others. Again, nothing’s confirmed, however all indicators level to The Long Night being about all kinds of characters unfold out geographically, very similar to Thrones.
Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class) is showrunner, engaged on an idea she developed with Song of Ice and Fire writer George R.R. Martin. S.J. Clarkson, who’s directed episodes of every little thing from Orange Is The New Black to Jessica Jones, is directing the pilot. And it’s only a pilot; HBO hasn’t ordered this factor to sequence, though we’d be shocked if that didn’t occur. If the present does get picked up, we may see it as early as 2020.
