HBO gives go-ahead to Game of Thrones prequel pilot

  HBO gives go-ahead to Game of Thrones prequel pilot HBO said on Friday it is moving ahead with a prequel pilot for its hit television series Game of Thrones, the first green light for five potential spinoff projects for the award-winning medieval fantasy. HBO said it had given a pilot order to a prequel that will take place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones , the biggest international hit for the Time Warner channel. If all goes well with the pilot, the network will order a full TV series. The as yet untitled prequel was created by British screenwriter Jane Goldman with author George R.R.

He is a little less alive and kicking than before, but nonetheless alive , bringing a lot of Game of Thrones fans to tears and cheers. The answer lies in HBO ’s decision to create a spin - off based on our most-loved Game of Thrones character, none other than Jon Snow.

HBO should do an animated Game of Thrones series. We know five spin - off ideas are in development for when the show ends in 2019, and the network It wouldn’t cost anywhere near the same budget, and it would also allow them to devote the money they need for a second live-action show, meaning

Winter is coming, and if HBO and George R.R. Martin have their way, it just might never end. It is already common knowledge, less than a week after news broke, that Jane Goldman’s concept for a Game Of Thrones prequel got a pilot order from HBO. Announced by the premium cable network as a new series based on a story written by Goldman and Martin himself, the A Song Of Ice And Fire author has now taken to his endearingly antiquated blog on LiveJournal to explain that it is really Goldman’s series… and may not be the only Game Of Thrones prequel to be airing on HBO in the coming years.

Aye, it was announced well over a year ago that HBO was developing different approaches to a Game Of Thrones spin-off with different treatments from writers who included Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential), Bryan Cogman (Game Of Thrones), Carly Wray (Mad Men, Westworld), and Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island). Martin went on to elaborate that while one of those projects is dead, at least one of the three others could still become a pilot and series alongside Goldman’s Age Of Heroes spin-off.

  'Dead man' turns up alive after family wrongly ID body A man whose family thought he was dead after wrongly identifying a body has turned up alive. The man's wife and her relatives mistakenly told police in Japan that the body of a man found in a river was him and officers even handed it over to them.The mix-up only came to light when the woman's husband, who is in his 40s, returned alive to Matsudo, Chiba Prefecture, last month.It turned out the body, which was found about a year ago, was actually that of a missing Tokyo man in his 30s.

HBO seems to be on-board the spin - off train, and a new report now says that they are considering a total of four Game of Thrones spin - off ideas. Jane Goldman has previously written the screenplay for Neil Gaiman’s Stardust, and the movie adaptation of Kick -Ass.

“One of those has been shelved, I am given to understand, and of course Jane’s pilot is now moving to film. But that does not mean the others are dead. Three more GAME OF THRONES prequels, set in different periods and featuring different characters and storylines, remain in active development. Everything I am told indicates that we could film at least one more pilot, and maybe more than one, in the years to come. We do have an entire world and tens of thousands of years of history to play with, after all. But this is television, so nothing is certain.”

For fans of the genre maven, this is none too surprising as she has written arguably the best X-Men film (X-Men: First Class), best Neil Gaiman adaptation (Stardust), and best Bond movie, minus the Bond, of this decade (Kingsman: The Secret Service).

Each season Game of Thrones returns to television, inquiring minds speculate (and occasionally grill) the Powers That Be over the possibility of a sequel, prequel, or spinoff series. Now HBO has finally made its intentions clear: Winter will come again.

Says Martin, “All of the news stories about the pilot being greenlit are slapping my own picture up there next to Jane’s, which is very flattering but also a little misleading… I’ve consulted with all of the writers on all of the successor shows, and several of them have visited me in Santa Fe for long days of discussion, and we’ve gone back and forth in email, text, and telephone, so I have definitely been involved… but really, the accolades here should go to Jane. She has been an absolute thrill to work with… and my God, what a talent.”

  Second Game Of Thrones spin-off alive and kicking at HBO © Shutterstock That developing Game Of Thrones prequel is already known to be set in the Age Of Heroes, a period from thousands and thousands of years in the past—although Martin himself teases it may not be quite so long as the oft stated six to 10 thousand years ago, as even maesters dispute the epic timeline. It was a period of magic, Children of the Forest, and the Long Night, and there have been a lot of legends about epic quests and romantic tragedies that are all fertile ground for at least several television series. Just beware that one of the selling points of Goldman’s take on that era is “it’s not the story you think you know.”

TFC looking for its first winning streak

  TFC looking for its first winning streak Toronto FC is closing in on a much anticipated World Cup break but there will be no looking past Wednesday night’s opponents, DC United, despite the visitors bringing up the rear of the Eastern Conference and the lure of a few days off on the horizon. The Reds don’t have the luxury to turn off right now; they sit just two places ahead of DC in the East standings, ninth of 11 teams. “Have you seen where we are in the table?” captain Michael Bradley said when asked if maintaining focus for the match would be a challenge. “No. Not hard at all.”Toronto has 14 points in 13 matches and, in Bradley’s view, each of the 21 league matches remaining is big.

With the second -to-last season of ' Game of Thrones ' set to premiere in July, HBO has shared some more details about the prequel spin - off .
