"Game of Thrones" About These Shows 11 Things You Should Know.
"Game of Thrones" is the most popular show.
A lot of rumors are going on about HBO shows game of thrones, which are making up to four new spinoffs of the epic show once it's over.
Author George R.R. Martin took to his blog to clear things up, and revealed some very interesting details:
1. There are actually five pilot scripts in development.
GRRM said while it was initially reported there would be four scripts developed, HBO has since added a fifth to the lineup.
2. But that doesn't mean five shows will be created.
Or even that five pilots will be shot. At this stage HBO has ordered pilot scripts, nothing more. GRRM said, "Decades of experience in television and film have taught me that nothing is ever really certain... but I do think it's very unlikely that we'll be getting four (or five) series. At least not immediately. What we do have here is an order for four — now five — pilot scripts. How many pilots will be filmed, and how many series might come out of that, remains to be seen. (If we do get five series on the air, I might have to change my name to Dick Direwolf.)"
(Nice pun game, GRRM.)
3. There are writers officially attached to four of the scripts, and they're a pretty impressive bunch.
There's Godzilla writer Max Borenstein; Jane Goldman, who wrote The Woman in Black and co-wrote the likes of Stardust, X-Men: First Class, and Kingsman; Brian Helgeland, who won an Oscar for his L.A. Confidential screenplay; and Carly Wray, who has written for The Leftovers and Mad Men.
4. The fifth writer is yet to be announced, but is someone who knows and loves Westeros as much as GRRM himself, the author said.
