Fear not because our Maesters have already provided an in-depth look at what the show should involve and it's set to be another cracker for anyone that loves Game of Thrones. She and Thrones author George R.R. Martin will executive-produce, along with Vince Gerardis (Game of Thrones) and Daniel Zelman (Bloodline). And he has high praise for Jane Goldman, who will serve as showrunner for the new series. The original announcement revealed the pilot would range from the "horrifying secrets of Westeros' history to the true origin of the white walkers", and that it would depict "the world's descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hours".
Set thousands of years before the existing series, the proposed prequel pilot will be written by Jane Goldman, who wrote the screenplay for movies Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, X-Men: Days of Future Past and several others. "None of the characters or actors from Game of Thrones will appear in the new show". It occurred during the Age of Heroes approximately eight thousand years before Aegon's Conquest, in the midst of a great winter that lasted for years.More news: North Korea gets first dose of Trump summit news
