HBO simply cancelled its ‘Recreation of Thrones’ prequel starring Naomi Watts

Recreation of Thrones followers are having a tough week, headlined by a cringeworthy public look by showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff. They’ve shied away from the highlight since their massively profitable present ended with a depressing ultimate season just a few months in the past, however they determined to point out as much as the Austin Movie Pageant and just about verify to everybody that they had no thought what they have been doing and couldn’t imagine HBO took an opportunity on them. Learn our report from Monday overlaying their remarks on the pageant if you don’t imagine me.

And now, one other little bit of miserable news for Recreation of Thrones followers — HBO has simply unceremoniously caught a shard of dragonglass by way of the center of the super-secretive prequel starring Naomi Watts.

Screenwriter Jane Goldman reportedly emailed the solid members to break the news to them, with The Hollywood Reporter and others citing unnamed sources confirming the stunning cancellation.

Have we been overfed a Recreation of Thrones food regimen at this level? That may have factored into HBO’s calculations. Or possibly the pilot simply didn’t look as much as snuff, although with involvement from creator George R.R. Martin and Goldman — and Weiss and Benioff fortunately nowhere within the neighborhood of the venture — that’s hard to imagine.

Making this cancellation all of the extra of a shock, along with how established the model is at this level, was how far alongside the venture gave the impression to be. Confirmed solid members, along with Watts, included Josh Whitehouse, Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sheila Atim, Ivanno Jeremiah, Georgie Henley, and Alex Sharp, simply to name just a few. Moreover, a pilot episode had been shot over the summer season, and the story was mentioned to be centered on the primary battle between mankind and the White Walkers through the “Age of Heroes” Martin describes in his books.

THR notes {that a} second prequel is presently within the works at HBO, and that bringing the audience again to Westeros remains to be a high precedence for the cable big. Not like the now-dead series from Martin and Goldman, this second prequel will likely be set simply 300 years earlier than the events of the unique present, specializing in Home Targaryen earlier than it fell to break. George R.R. Martin is claimed to be working with Ryan Condal on this beforehand unreported series.
