"Game of Thrones" Rumored Prequel Face-Off

by urbanemovies | created - 8 months ago | updated - 7 months ago | Public

On 04 May 2017, HBO announced that it had ordered pilot scripts for five separate prequel projects to succeed "Game of Thrones (2011)". HBO has said that, due to the massive logistics involved, it will probably only pick one of these pitches to go into full production. On 08 June 2018, HBO announced it had green lit Jane Goldman's script to go into pre-production, actors Naomi Watts and Josh Whitehouse were cast as leads and the pilot movie will likely be shown as soon as 2020 and if all goes well, a likely pick-up for a full season TV series.

Tentatively titled Untitled Game of Thrones Prequel, HBO cryptically promises a tale set "... thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: From the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East, to the Starks of legend… it’s not the story we think we know.”

Also, "A Song of Ice and Fire" novelist, George R.R. Martin speculatively predicted “... we could possibly see two or even three make it to the pilot stage, with one series emerging on air (as a full series)” Although, that’s his best guess, he stresses that no one knows for sure.

Which of the remaining four writers (and their secretive pitches) would be your first choice to be next in line for another "Game of Thrones" prequel TV series or even a spin-off "Game of Thrones" feature film?

SPOILER ALERT: Intended for viewers who want to know about the upcoming Game of Thrones (2011) prequel TV series as poll reveals rumored pilot details known as of the end of calendar 2018.

I opt for no other Game of Thrones prequels, but Untitled Game of Thrones Prequel.

Game of Thrones (2011) is great, but the series complexity pushes the limits of what my mind and body can handle. I imagine Untitled Game of Thrones Prequel will be similarly consuming and challenging. I love "Games of Thrones", but don't think I can manage more than one spin-off at a time and need the year-long hiatus between seasons to recover.
