A Game Of Thrones Movie Is Being Discussed
In an interview with The Daily Beast, Charles Dance revealed that there is active discussion about a possible Game of Thrones movie.
Dance, who plays Tywin Lannister in the series said,
“There’s talk of eventually trying to do a feature film, but I don’t know which of the storylines. There’s so much to cram into a film.”
That’s not a lot to go on, but there are a lot of possible directions they could take with a film. Perhaps they use a feature film as a series finale, but it’s hard to speculate on that since the series’ ending hasn’t been written yet. Of course, Game of Thrones made clear last season that they’re not going to be slavishly devoted to George R.R. Martin’s novels, so perhaps they’ll just take things in their own direction anyway.
A feature film finale might be a hard pull off for a television series, even a prestige, premium cable series like Game of Thrones.
On the other hand, a prequel doesn’t leave much room for the series’ most famous characters to appear.
