After the Game of Thrones series finale, HBO will make a Game of Thrones movie.
Author George R.R. Martin has just revealed that a Game of Thrones movie is coming soon.
George R.R. Martin created the books on which the hit TV drama series is based, he also wrote a number of episodes for the show and currently acts as the co-executive producer. But, now the writer can add a whistleblower to his resume. Martin has now revealed that Game of Thrones will continue on the big screen once the show finishes, but he will not be involved in the project because he is too busy working on the remaining books.
He tells Ibnlive.com, “There will be a movie but I will not be involved. I have too much to do. That is something HBO and (executive producers) DB (D.B. Weiss) and David (Benioff) are dealing with. I have two more books to finish and I still have so much to do. The pressure is on. I am such a slow writer and the fans get upset that I don’t write faster.”
Game of Thrones
is set on the fictional worlds of Westeros and Essos as the show interweaves several plot lines with a broad cast. Game of Thrones
