I normally love these things but this is just really flat. There’s no narrative to it or even really any sense of excitement that your getting a peak behind the curtains. It’s just a bunch of random behind the scenes clips strung together.
It can't be easy as actors to perform something you think is hopelessly written Conleth Hill knows his character better than anyone. To suddenly be killed off because of something he knows the character would never do (i.e. directly approach Jon Snow) must be so frustrating.
'Game of Thrones': Naomi Watts-Led Prequel Dead at HBO
The untitled Game of Thrones prequel from Jane Goldman is not moving forward at HBO.
Said to focus on the "Age of Heroes" and the first ever battle between man and White Walker, Goldman's prequel — which had filmed a pilot over the summer — will not be advancing to series, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. According to sources, Goldman e-mailed the cast to share the news.
According to sources, HBO execs screened the pilot over the summer and were not thrilled with the results. Instead of passing, however, they sent Goldman and Co. back into the editing room to make a slew of changes. But the revamped pilot failed to impress the execs either, leading them to pull the plug altogether.
According to multiple insiders, the pilot was “troubled” from the start, marred by budget overruns, numerous personnel issues and myriad creative differences.
Meanwhile, HBO is expected to move forward with another Game of Thrones prequel project, this one that would trace the glory days of House Targaryen. The project has earned an official pilot order at HBO. The spinoff is co-created by GoT book author George R.R. Martin and Colony creator Ryan J. Condal, and is set 300 years before the original Thrones series, chronicling “the beginning of the end for House Targaryen.” Martin’s companion book Fire & Blood serves as a template for the new series.
Let’s be honest, no one would “walk away” from a trilogy of Star Wars films, they were as good as fired I’d guess!
Kind of glad the prequel has been scrapped, it was basically just going to be a vaguely similar white walker storyline to what we got in A Game of Thrones. A Targaryen based one would be much better anyway, I’d love a Dance of Dragons based one personally.
