HBO DROPS A THRONES PREQUEL
Posted: 012920

The 1000 Year Prequel Gets Axed in Favor of the 300 Year Prequel

HBO told the cast and crew of the $10 million pilot for a Game of Thrones prequel series, that it is not being picked up. The now series was set to take place thousands of years prior to the events of the original. The cast included: Naomi Watts, Josh Whitehouse, Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, Jamie Campbell Bower, Georgie Henley, Miranda Richardson and John Simm. It was co-created by Jane Goldman and George R.R. Martin. Both wrote the story and Goldman would have been the showrunner for the series, which would have been called The Long Night. For the moment HBO is going forward with House of the Dragon, which will be set 300 years before Thrones and tell the story of the House Targaryen and the last great war involving dragons. Martin wanted fans to know that HBO didn’t kill Long Night just so they could do Dragon because HBO has more money than they know what to do with. He also revealed that he is working on finishing The Winds of Winter, which will offer different ending for some of the characters from Thrones. Martin will not write any planned Thrones spin-offs until the book is done.
