HBO Confirms 'Game Of Thrones' Prequel

Adjust Comment Print

HBO has officially ordered a pilot for its "Game of Thrones" prequel series from writer Jane Goldman - a frequent collaborator with director Matthew Vaughn on movies like "Kick-Ass", "Kingsman: The Secret Service", and "X-Men: First Class" - and George R.R. Martin, who wrote the "A Song of Ice and Fire" books the series is based on.

Martin reminded fans that HBO has only ordered a pilot episode, meaning the show might not come to series.

According to Variety, the series will take place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones and would chronicle the world's descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. "More likely HBO will want to work the phrase "game of thrones" in there somewhere".

Martin points out that even putting his picture on articles about the new pilot is "misleading", as showrunner Jane Goldman is writing the pilot and is creatively responsible for the output.

Game of Thrones has become a global phenomenon with its whimsical world of dragons and White Walkers on one hand, and a touch of reality with the complexity of emotions, relationships and how they can not be trusted when it comes to ruling a kingdom.

Martin also praised Goldman (she's now working on Disney's live-action The Little Mermaid), who he called "an absolute thrill to work with... and my god, what a talent". She and Thrones author George R.R. Martin will executive-produce, along with Vince Gerardis (Game of Thrones) and Daniel Zelman (Bloodline). Three more Game of Thrones prequels, set in different periods and featuring different characters and storylines, remain in active development. We do have an entire world and tens of thousands of years of history to play with, after all.
