Game of Thrones Gets A Prequel

Game of Thrones Gets A Prequel

According to Deadline, the still-untitled project will be set near the end of the Golden Age of Heroes, just as Westeros falls into the darkest periods of its history.

Jane Goldman, a writer on a number of Matthew Vaughn's projects including the Kingsman movies, Kick-Ass, and Stardust, will serve as showrunner of the yet-to-be-titled series, which will reportedly take place "thousands of years" before the events of Game of Thrones.

HBO said on Friday it is moving ahead with a prequel for its hit television series "Game of Thrones", the first green light for five potential spinoff projects for the award-winning medieval fantasy.

The series will be set way back in Westeros' history, thousands of years before the events of GOT.

Regardless of the next steps, we'll have to be patient.

A Game Of Thrones prequel series has been given the go ahead by HBO. The Age of Heroes begins about 10,000 years before the current time frame in "Game of Thrones". Goldman and Martin will also executive produce alongside Game of Thrones executive producer Vince Gerardis and Damages co-creator Daniel Zelman.

The Reds are also assessing adding a goalkeeper to the ranks, while they have had a bid refused for Lyon attacker Nabil Fekir. And The Guardian claims that manager Jurgen Klopp is open to the idea of bringing Shaqiri to Anfield.

Certain "heroes" in the age include Bran the Builder and Lann the Clever, whose descendants essentially helped found House Stark and House Lannister.

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, who developed Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books for television, will not be involved in this new GOT series.

The battle for the Iron Throne intensifies, while the threat from north of the wall approaches as Game of Thrones edges towards its final conclusion in its second-to-last season. Goldman and Martin wrote the story, with Goldman writing the teleplay.

HBO did not provide a timeline for the pilot's production, but president of programming Casey Bloys has previously said the network is in no rush to find a followup to "Game of Thrones".
