In May we learned that HBO is working on a “Game of Thrones” spinoff and hired four writers to “explore different time periods of George R. R. Martin’s vast and rich universe.” HBO hired four writers to develop possible spinoffs, prequels or sequels. Included in those writers were Max Borenstein (“Kong: Skull Island,” “Fox’s Minority Report”). Jane Goldman (“Kingsman: The Secret Service,” “X-Men: First Class”), Brian Helgeland (“A Knight’s Tale,” “L.A. Confidential”), and Carly Wray (“Mad Men”). On Wednesday, we found out that a fifth possible “Game of Thrones” series was in the works.
The fifth possible prequel and this one will be written by someone familiar with George R.R. Martin’s fantasy universe. The fifth project is being helmed by “Game of Thrones” co-executive producer Bryan Cogman. He has written 11 episodes of “Thrones” including the second episode of Season 8 as well as Season 3, Episode 5, “Kissed by Fire,” which has a score of 9 out of 10 on IMDB.
