Rumors of a Game of Thrones movie have been flying around for over a year now, recently along with a pretty convincing rumor that George R.R. Martin had confirmed discussions for one. The Daily Star reported that Martin had gone even further and revealed that a movie was not just being discussed but was currently in the works, even adding some details about it. Here are the reported George R. R. Martin quotes that got all us GoT fans riled up:
“There will be a movie but I will not be involved. I have too much to do. That is something HBO and DB and David are dealing with. I have two more books to finish and I still have so much to do.”
“They are looking at dipping back in time during certain periods of the series, which could be examined as a one off plot. That means that some of the big characters who fans have seen die on screen could be resurrected.”
Alas, comments from George R. R. Martin himself on his blog have de-bunked this rumor. It did seem a little odd, being as the entire story arc isn’t even finished yet. Also, would Martin really ok a movie based on his own books that he himself couldn’t even have a hand in? At least we still have the new season premiere of the show to look forward to in early 2016!
