New York’s Avery Fisher Hall hosted the premiere of Game of Thrones Season 4: an event attended by bored and unenthusiastic actors, producers and directors. However, it was the series’ creator, author George R.R. Martin, who drew the most attention at the event after he revealed that plans are in motion to develop Game of Thrones into a feature-length film:
“It all depends on how long the main series runs. Do we run for seven years? Do we run for eight? Do we run for 10? The books get bigger and bigger (in scope). It might need a feature to tie things up, something with a feature budget, like $100 million for two hours. Those dragons get real big, you know.”
Martin also added that HBO have considered the possibly of adapting his series of prequel short stories into a feature-length movie. With a similar structure to Sin City, Games of Thrones: The Tales of Dunk and Egg would presumably jump from one narrative to the next. Regardless of how the plot is put together,,the style of Martin’s short stories would perhaps be better suited as material to be develop into a feature-length film.
