George R.R. Martin — the writer behind A Song of Fire and Ice book series, which functioned as the foundation for Game of Thrones — has stated he could write several episodes of this newly-confirmed prequel spin-off collection, House of the Dragon, although not until he finishes the long-delayed first book,”The Winds of Winter”. Martin added he could be involved in different components of including building crew, cast, and a writer’s area, and also the states. He also expressed condolences.
“There is a writer’s space to be constructed, events to be broken down and scripted, a cast and crew to be constructed, budgets and manufacturing details to be worked out.
“As yetwe do not know where we’ll be shooting… although I hope we’ll revisit at some of those states David [Benioff] & Dan [Weiss] employed for Game of Thrones (Ireland, Iceland, Scotland, Croatia, Morocco, Malta, and Spain). I expect to get involved with all this to some degree… and, who knows, if things work out, I might even have the ability to script some episodes, as I did to the first four seasons of Game of Thrones.
“However… I want to make this absolutely clear… I’m not carrying on any scripts before I’ve completed and sent’Winds of Winter’.
Martin teased those looking ahead to House of the Dragon can discover more about the Sport of Thrones prequel spin-off show by studying up the book it is based on, 2018’s Fire & Blood, of course, along with the two anthologies, 2013’s Dangerous Ladies and 2014’s Rogues, that include two brief stories,”The Princess and the Queen” and”The Rogue Prince”, on the Targaryen household, such as Princess Rhaenyra, her stepmother Queen Alicent, and King Viserys that I Targaryen’s brother, Prince Daemon Targaryen.
In terms of the now-dead untitled prequel spin-off out of Jane Goldman and starring Naomi Watts — that Martin called The Night Night — Martin stated he was saddened to hear the information, calling Goldman that a”terrific screenwriter” which he”enjoyed cooperating together with her”.
“I don’t understand why HBO chose to not go to show with this one, but I don’t believe it had to do with House of the Dragon,” Martin added. “This was not an either/or situation. If television has space enough for numerous CSIs and’Chicago’ shows… well, Westeros and Essos really are a whole lot larger, with tens of thousands of years old and sufficient stories and legends and personalities to get a dozen displays.
I have been there . I understand Jane and her staff are feeling the disappointment only now, and they have my sympathy… together with my thanks for their hard work, along with my good wishes for anything they do .”
