George R.R. Martin, the writer of the A Song of Ice as well as Fire publication collection that was developed into HBO’s blockbuster Game of Thrones, has actually authorized a significant brand-new bargain with HBO to make material for the network as well as HBO Max, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It’s a five-year bargain worth “mid-eight figures,” resources informed THR.
Although Game of Thrones finished in 2019, HBO proprietor WarnerMedia has actually currently introduced an innovator collection, House of the Dragon, based upon Martin’s 2019 publication Fire as well as Blood. And there are 5 tasks in advancement based upon the Game of Thrones world, THR records. Martin is likewise establishing collection for HBO based upon the stories Who Fears Death as well as Roadmarks.
My worst anxiety, however, is that this significant brand-new bargain maintains Martin from dealing with the 6th publication in the A Song of Ice as well as Fire publication collection, The Winds of Winter. The writer claimed in February that he composed “hundreds and hundreds of pages” of The Winds of Winter in 2020, which was the “best year” he’s carried guide. Fingers crossed he’s been maintaining that energy going. The previous title in the seven-book collection, A Dance with Dragons, was launched in July 2011.
