Well this is not what we wanted to hear.
HBO is not proceeding with its planned Game of Thrones prequel starring Naomi Watts.
That’s despite an untitled pilot being filmed (bow-bowwwww).
The project was set to take place thousands of years prior to the events of the original series.
Jane Goldman co-created the project with George R.R. Martin, and the cast also included Josh Whitehouse, Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sheila Atim, Ivanno Jeremiah, Georgie Henley, Alex Sharp, Toby Regbo, Miranda Richardson, Marquis Rodriquez, John Simm, Richard McCabe, John Heffernan, and Dixie Egerickx.
The pilot was one of several that were put into development at HBO prior to the end of the series.
However, it was reported in September that HBO was nearing a pilot commitment for a project based on based on companion book “Fire & Blood.”
Updated: HBO has announced a straight to to series order for a prequel series in the world of Westeros called House of the Dragon.
The rumored series is focused on House Targaryen and created by Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin and Ryan Condal (Colony) was given a formal series order on Tuesday at the end of HBO Max’ formal unveiling to investors. Condal will pen the script for the 10-episode series.
