Just when you thought you’d have a little more free time in the evenings, Hollywood insiders Variety have reported that a FIFTH (5! CINCO! CINQ! LOADS!) Game Of Thrones prequel is in the works at HBO.
Bryan Cogman, who has worked at the show since the start, has apparently been ‘tapped’ to ‘pen’ another prequel to join the four others - to be written by Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island), Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Brian Helgeland (Legend), and Carly Wray (Mad Men and The Leftovers) - that were announced to be in development in May as series author George R.R. Martin announces that five is indeed better than four.
Per Variety: “When Martin first spoke of the fifth writer being recruited in May, he said that apart from himself and Thrones experts Elio Garcia and Linda Antonsson, ‘I don’t know anyone who knows and loves Westeros as well as he does.’”
It’s also been reported that “Martin has made clear that each project is a prequel rather than a spin-off and that none of the current main cast of the series will be involved” and yet we’re somehow still bang up for it.
