New details of The Game of Thrones spinoff currently in the works at HBO have emerged courtesy of the Books author George R.R. Martin.
In a post on his personal blog, Thrones author George R.R. Martin hyped the upcoming release of Fire & Blood, a companion book to his Thrones novels that contains “monumental history of the Targaryen kings of Westeros.”
George R.R. Martin: “The only answer I can give is… ah, well, no one is sure yet, and anyway, I am not allowed to say. So let’s move that to the side.”
“As most of you know, HBO is presently developing a number of different prequels to Game of Thrones,” Martin says on his site. “I know I am going to be asked whether those shows are going to be based on material from Fire & Blood. It’s a logical question. The only answer I can give is… ah, well, no one is sure yet, and anyway, I am not allowed to say. So let’s move that to the side.”
In May 2017, HBO announced that it had deals with four writers — Carly Wray (Mad Men), Jane Goldman (X-Men), Brian Helgeland (Mystic River) and Max Borenstein (Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island) — to “explore different time periods of [George R.R. Martin] ’s vast and rich universe. There is no set timetable for these projects
