Game of Thrones Prequel: Everything That You Need To Know Much In Advance
A couple of days ago, we had informed our readers about a prequel to the worldwide popular series Game Of Thrones, which is in the works at HBO. Today, we are going to share some interesting details we have got our hands on. According to reports, the team at HBO is planning to shoot a pilot to Game Of Thrones in early 2019. The series, set in Westeros, has been unofficially titled The Long Night. However, HBO is yet to confirm it.
The next question that pops up in our head is: where the prequel will be based? The official description of the series sheds some light on it: “Taking place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world’s descent from the Golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: From the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East, to the Starks of legend… it’s not the story we think we know.” Sounds interesting, isn’t it?
Now comes the main point: who all are going to headline the series? So far only two names have been confirmed – Naomi Watts and British actor Josh Whitehouse. The series is going to have an ensemble cast and several high-profile names are expected to join the cast in days to come.
Screenwriter Jane Goldman is associated with the series as showrunner. We hear that a team of five writers is working on the prequel, each tasked with coming up with a different GoT prequel set in the Ice and Fire universe. George R.R. Martin, who has been the creator of Game Of Thrones, has come onboard to help develop the concept with Goldman. He is also serving as co-creator and executive producer of the prequel. If all goes well, Game Of Thrones prequel will hit airwaves in 2020.
