Game of Thrones mores than in a couple of brief weeks, however HBO is active preparing for the following stage in what might or might not end up being the Game of Thrones Cinematic Universe, or whatever it winds up being called. Westeros World? A Song of Shows and also Movies?
Anyway, there’s currently a Game of Thrones innovator collection hundreds of years prior to the mainline program in energetic growth. It happens long prior to dragons concerned Westeros, and also celebrities such hefty players as Naomi Watts and also Miranda Richardson. A Song of Ice and also Fire writer George R.R. Martin has actually required to calling it The Long Night, although there is no main title since yet. Showrunner Jane Goldman will certainly fire the pilot for that reveal this year, which implies we’ll with any luck see an appropriate period by 2020.
However, when HBO was obtaining this sphere rolling, there were numerous innovators displays in growth. We currently understand that a minimum of among them — a program being dealt with by longtime Game of Thrones scribe Bryan Cogman — has actually been shelved. As for the remainder, enigma rules, although Martin has actually been even more upcoming than a lot of regarding what’s decreasing behind the scenes. Just the other day, he obtained honest with a brand-new message on his Not a Blog:
We have actually had 5 various VIDEO GAME OF THRONES follower displays in growth (I mislike the term “spinoffs”) at HBO, and also 3 of them are still progressing well. The one I am not meant to call THE LONG EVENING will certainly be shooting later on this year, and also 2 various other programs stay in the manuscript phase, however are bordering more detailed. What are they around? I cannot state. But possibly a few of you ought to grab a duplicate of FIRE & BLOOD and also think of your very own concepts.
I choose the term “prequels” myself, however you all call them whatever you intend to.
Anyway, past verification that HBO is still dealing with numerous innovator programs, the large takeaway below is Martin’s tip that visitors ought to review Fire & Blood, which has to do with the background of the Targaryen empire in Westeros. Is Martin meaning a program focusing on Aegon Targaryen’s intrusion of Westeros, or possibly regarding the Targaryen civil battle called the Dance of the Dragons? Maybe we could also dip back right into what the Targaryens were performing in Valyria prior to the Doom?
The opportunities are numerous. I really hope HBO doesn’t boil down as well difficult on Martin for going down tips such as this. They’ve obtained their hands rather complete currently.
