Game of Thrones aiming to become multiple movie franchise

game of thrones season 4

(From The Guardian) Multiple movies set in the Game of Thrones universe could be coming to the big screen, creator George RR Martin has revealed.

Speaking at the New York premiere of season four of the popular fantasy TV epic, author Martin said the series might need the bigger budgets provided to film-makers for its grand finale. He also hinted at the possibility of movies based on the Tales of Dunk and Egg, a trilogy of spin-off novellas set 90 years before the events on Game of Thrones in the mythical land of Westeros.

“It all depends on how long the main series runs,” Martin told The Hollywood Reporter. “Do we run for seven years? Do we run for eight? Do we run for 10? The books get bigger and bigger (in scope). It might need a feature to tie things up, something with a feature budget, like $100 million for two hours. Those dragons get real big, you know.”

Dunk and Egg’s adventures, which centre on a lowly-born knight and a squire of aristocratic extraction who travels with him, might be perfect for a series of standalone movies, Martin suggested. “They could be the basis for [a film]“, said the author. “I have written these three stories, and I have about a dozen more.”

Wisdom suggests the Dunk and Egg films might make it to the big screen first. HBO’s Game of Thrones series is entering its fourth season but has so far only covered the events of two and a half of Martin’s novels from the A Song of Ice and Fire saga. There are still two more published books to go and the author intends to write at least two more. The later books in the series are among the longest and feature increasingly expansive story lines.
