The awaited spinoff series of Game of Thrones, which George R.R. Martin has labeled as "prequels," will tell stories recognizable to fans as a past event.
Writer Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass), who's working with Martin to develop one of the prequels, chatted with IGN to give fans an update about the project.
When asked whether the offshoot will cover stories that are familiar to readers, Goldman replied:
Yeah, I think I can say if I was able to say what mine was — yeah, I think as a book reader or as someone who watched the series, you would say, “Oh, that! OK.” Yeah, it would be recognizable as a past event, but I think that’s probably as far as I can go.
In other Thrones news, star Nikolaj-Coster Waldau (Jamie Lannister) revealed that the eight and final season will begin shooting this fall.
Speaking with Collider, the actor said:
I knew what was going to happen for the first three seasons. After that, it’s been a season at a time.
You get the scripts a month before we start shooting, or six weeks, and then you know what’s going to happen that season. But, I don’t know what’s going to happen next season. We go back in October, so maybe in the next few weeks, we’ll get the scripts and I’ll find out. I’m very curious.
