Here’s the history behind the Pact, the Long Night, Bran the Builder and the origin of the white walkers.The first pilot has been ordered for a Game of Thrones prequel series, from screenwriter Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Golden Circle, X-Men: First Class). The new potential series is one of five projects from HBO’s sprawling development effort to find potential spin-offs for the landmark fantasy series.

He is a little less alive and kicking than before, but nonetheless alive , bringing a lot of Game of Thrones fans to tears and cheers. The answer lies in HBO ’s decision to create a spin - off based on our most-loved Game of Thrones character, none other than Jon Snow.

HBO should do an animated Game of Thrones series. We know five spin - off ideas are in development for when the show ends in 2019, and the network It wouldn’t cost anywhere near the same budget, and it would also allow them to devote the money they need for a second live-action show, meaning

Winter is coming, and if HBO and George R.R. Martin have their way, it just might never end. It is already common knowledge, less than a week after news broke, that Jane Goldman’s concept for a Game Of Thrones prequel got a pilot order from HBO. Announced by the premium cable network as a new series based on a story written by Goldman and Martin himself, the A Song Of Ice And Fire author has now taken to his endearingly antiquated blog on LiveJournal to explain that it is really Goldman’s series… and may not be the only Game Of Thrones prequel to be airing on HBO in the coming years.

Though season eight of Game of Thrones will be its last, HBO has no intention of leaving George R.R.

Aye, it was announced well over a year ago that HBO was developing different approaches to a Game Of Thrones spin-off with different treatments from writers who included Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential), Bryan Cogman (Game Of Thrones), Carly Wray (Mad Men, Westworld), and Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island). Martin went on to elaborate that while one of those projects is dead, at least one of the three others could still become a pilot and series alongside Goldman’s Age Of Heroes spin-off.

HBO seems to be on-board the spin - off train, and a new report now says that they are considering a total of four Game of Thrones spin - off ideas. Jane Goldman has previously written the screenplay for Neil Gaiman’s Stardust, and the movie adaptation of Kick -Ass.

“One of those has been shelved, I am given to understand, and of course Jane’s pilot is now moving to film. But that does not mean the others are dead. Three more GAME OF THRONES prequels, set in different periods and featuring different characters and storylines, remain in active development. Everything I am told indicates that we could film at least one more pilot, and maybe more than one, in the years to come. We do have an entire world and tens of thousands of years of history to play with, after all. But this is television, so nothing is certain.”

For fans of the genre maven, this is none too surprising as she has written arguably the best X-Men film (X-Men: First Class), best Neil Gaiman adaptation (Stardust), and best Bond movie, minus the Bond, of this decade (Kingsman: The Secret Service).

HBO has put an end to months of speculation about a possible Game of Thrones spinoff , announcing that four different writers have signed development deals with the network. Variety reports that

Each season Game of Thrones returns to television, inquiring minds speculate (and occasionally grill) the Powers That Be over the possibility of a sequel, prequel, or spinoff series. Now HBO has finally made its intentions clear: Winter will come again.

Says Martin, “All of the news stories about the pilot being greenlit are slapping my own picture up there next to Jane’s, which is very flattering but also a little misleading… I’ve consulted with all of the writers on all of the successor shows, and several of them have visited me in Santa Fe for long days of discussion, and we’ve gone back and forth in email, text, and telephone, so I have definitely been involved… but really, the accolades here should go to Jane. She has been an absolute thrill to work with… and my God, what a talent.”

  Second Game Of Thrones spin-off alive and kicking at HBO © Shutterstock That developing Game Of Thrones prequel is already known to be set in the Age Of Heroes, a period from thousands and thousands of years in the past—although Martin himself teases it may not be quite so long as the oft stated six to 10 thousand years ago, as even maesters dispute the epic timeline. It was a period of magic, Children of the Forest, and the Long Night, and there have been a lot of legends about epic quests and romantic tragedies that are all fertile ground for at least several television series. Just beware that one of the selling points of Goldman’s take on that era is “it’s not the story you think you know.”

Adrian to speak to Pellegrini before deciding West Ham future

  Adrian to speak to Pellegrini before deciding West Ham future Adrian says he will wait to hear from Manuel Pellegrini before making a decision about his West Ham future. Speaking to Copa Sevilla, as cited by Sport Witness, the goalkeeper has played down talk of a move away amid links to Real Betis. “I’m waiting to hear Pellegrini’s ideas, and from there will make a decision. In addition to Pellegrini’s opinion, the contractual situation also influences, if the club want me they should show it with an extension, there is already the president, with who we have to iron out rough edges, that will be seen, West Ham is my second home.” “Both options are there, the first thing is to sit down with the club and see the situation. In the Premier League I have a good name, here with Betis also a good image, once we know the idea of the club we will make a decision.” After falling out of favour under David Moyes, Adrian has been linked with a move back to his former side, but he isn’t ruling out staying at the London Stadium. Moyes rotated between both Adrian and Joe Hart last season, with neither goalkeeper really able to nail down a place as number one. Adrian’s decision on his future is likely to be dependent on the guarantees of regular game time, something Pellegrini may not be able to offer if he wants to bring in his own players. The Spaniard has been a fan favourite at West Ham since joining from Betis back in 2013.

Loftus-Cheek reveals he is ready if England need him .
Ruben Loftus-Cheek says he is ready to play in England’s opening World Cup game against Tunisia if he is called upon. The 22-year old Chelsea midfielder, who spent last season on loan with Crystal Palace, won his first England cap before Christmas due to his impressive form for the Eagles, and wasn’t seen as too big a surprise when he was named in Gareth Southgate’s squad to travel to Russia. With England kicking off their campaign against the African nation in Volgograd on Monday, the four times capped midfielder says he feels the squad are in good shape. As reported by Sky Sports, Loftus-Cheek said: “Training has always been top level. No matter if it’s at a World Cup or not, training’s been really good and at a high level.” “We’re looking forward to the first game and I’m sure whoever starts will be ready and whoever is on the bench will be ready as well.” Loftus-Cheek, who is playing in his first major tournament for his country, insists that the Three Lions have the ability to overcome whatever challenges that come their way. He continued: “Any game in the World Cup is a tough game. The atmosphere brings a lot out of both teams so we’re ready for a tough game and an aggressive start from them so we just need to be ready.” “I think the pressures of playing at a World Cup, the pinnacle of football, I imagine it can get to some players.” “But I feel with this group everything is relaxed, confident, everyone looks ready. We’re training well, we’re ready, so I’m personally really confident about the team and this World Cup.
