Game of Thrones lining up new prequel that could have movie spin-off

HBO are reportedly lining up another prequel to Game of Thrones, with the potential of a feature-film spin-off to boot.

As per Variety, the studio and Warner Bros are in discussions to bring the world of Westeros onto the big screen for the first time, with the film leading into a potential new series.

Though the project is still currently in the conceptual stage of development, the narrative would reportedly follow Aegon and his sister-wives, Rhaenys and Visenya, as they capture six of the seven kingdoms.

Aegon and Rhaenys appeared on spin-off series House of the Dragon, where they were played by Tom Glynn-Carney (as well as Ty Tennant) and Eve Best respectively.

With the first season performing well both critically and commercially, production on the second season is well underway, and HBO boss Casey Bloys recently provided an update on the project.

"My philosophy is [that] a good script is [the] number one priority. I am not doing it based on wanting to have one [show] a year, two a year. I want to do it based on the scripts that we're excited about," he said.

"Remember, to get House of the Dragon following up from Game of Thrones, we developed a lot of shows, shot a pilot, developed a bunch of scripts and we got House of the Dragon,” he continued.

"To do that again is going to take the same amount of effort. You have to develop a lot of things, try things. You never know what's going to work. So we're currently doing that.

"I’m not opposed to any number of shows. There's probably a natural limit to how many fans want, but I’m open to any as long as we feel really good about the scripts and the prospects for a series," he added.

Game of Thrones seasons 1-8 are available on DVD and Blu-ray. House of the Dragon airs on HBO in the US, and on Sky Atlantic and NOW in the UK.
