Game for a prequel
A GAME of Thrones prequel is in the pipeline – one of five potential spin-off projects.
HBO, which makes the popular medieval fantasy series, has ordered a pilot for a show which will be set thousands of years before the current one.
If good enough, the network will commission a full series. But executives say any spin-off will not be broadcast until after Game of Thrones ends in 2019.
The prequel has been created by screenwriter Jane Goldman, who wrote Kick-ass, X-men: First Class and the Kingsman films.
She is working alongside author of the series, George RR Martin. Martin has said he is working with at least four other writers regarding further spin-offs.
