GOT Author George Martin Trashes Rumours About Film Adaptation

“Especially not on line”, he wrote. “But nothing has changed”.


“And those of you with long memories may recall all the rumours about a Sopranos movie… a Rome movie… a Deadwood movie”.

Meanwhile, a rep from HBO also confirmed with HuffPost that the rumors about the movie are “not at all correct. It will… oh, it’s all too silly”, Martin wrote. However, he was not going to be able to work on it due to his busy schedule. More to the point, should they have been made?

However, those fans that have attached themselves to the idea that the series will end with a movie should probably bring their hopes down a peg. Which doesn’t mean it is going to happen.

“Yes, I said ‘coloring book.’ Not just for the kiddies either”.

“No one is working on any movie just now”. That’s ridiculous, a pointless argument. The IMAX limited release of the series generated an impressive $1.9m (£1.25m) at the U.S. box office for showing two repeats of the series in 205 cinemas across Super Bowl weekend. He could live. He could die.

What are your thoughts about a possible GoT film?

“It would be a great way to end”. The books get bigger and bigger [in scope].

However, according to a new report by The Huffington Post, Martin has denied the rumours about the film. It is so popular, in fact, that there have been rumors of a movie about the books.

“They are looking at dipping back in time during certain periods of the series, which could be examined as a one off plot”, he said.

Unfortunately though for many fans, the idea of a Game of Thrones movie isn’t something they’d welcome and would instead rather it was left alone when the last episode airs.


“I did say that I liked the idea”, Martin continues, observing that, at the time, Game of Thrones was not the economic powerhouse it is today. A statement sent by Martin to the outlet read, “There’s been talk about it…I’d love to see one, but nothing is decided”. He remembers how living in the projects in New Jersey but says: “It never mattered, though, for I had other worlds”.
