Game of Thrones Was Supposed to End with 3 Movies According to George R.R. Martin
Game of Thrones almost finished with three great movies. Author George R.R. Martin revealed the news in a recent interview. The HBO series had a contentious end last summer and fans are still reeling from the decisions that have been made. Hardcore fans went so far as to get a petition asking HBO to come back and redo the whole last season with new writers, which over 1.8 million people have signed up for. Obviously, the network has not even considered redoing what had already been done.
Could things have ended differently if Game of Thrones came out with three big movies? This is something that fans will more than likely debate for years to come. In a recent interview, George R.R. Martin revealed that the idea for the film was the original plan, about five years ago, and that it had been seriously considered. He had this to say when asked about a possible future film.
"At this point, it would not be for me to decide, because HBO control the film rights to Game Of Thrones [19459005Endehorsdecelanousavionsenfaitenvisagécetteoption:DavidBenioffetDanWeisslesdeuxcréateursdelasérievoulaientenfaitmettrefinàlasagaaprèslaseptièmesaisonavectroisgrandsfilmsGameOfThronesdevaitsetermineraucinémaIlyaquatreoucinqansilaétésérieusementdiscuté"
Game of Thrones on the big screen could have been huge. The discussion on GOT on the big screen took place in the interview after George R.R. Martin discussed the Hollywood directors he met and those he would like to work with. Guillermo del Toro tops Martin's list, as does Quentin Tarantino. So why has the idea of a film never gone beyond planning stages? Martin explains.
"Because HBO did not get involved. The people responsible said," We are producing television series, we are not in the cinema. And when HBO makes movies, like now with [ Deadwood ] then they only produce it to show on TV – not in theaters. Everything is changing right now. What is cinema today? What is television? What is streaming? Does Netflix make films or television? Everything is mixed. Today, we no longer know where the boundaries are between cinema, streaming providers and television. "
When George RR Martin talks about" big movies, "that’s all the information given to us. He didn’t say how long the movies were going to last. In the end, Game of Thrones probably would have had the same screen time to get the story out, just configured differently. The last season has had a few fairly long episodes that were comparable to feature films, but fans hoped for even more.
As for his plans for the future, George RR Martin says: "I'm still trying to finish 39; first the next book Winds Of Winter then the follow-up novel A Dream Of Spring. These are the things I focus on. Then we will see. "Will he ever achieve his vision? Only time will tell, but he can apparently go back and rewrite history after the negative reaction to the conclusion of the series Game of Thrones . The interview with Martin was initially carried out with the German store Welt.
