HBO gives Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin an eight-figure deal
George R.R. Martin, the author of the A Tune of Ice and Hearth e book sequence that was changed into HBO’s smash hit Game of Thrones, has signed an enormous new deal with HBO to make content material for the community and HBO Max, in keeping with The Hollywood Reporter. It’s a five-year deal value “mid-eight figures,” sources advised THR.
Though Game of Thrones resulted in 2019, HBO proprietor WarnerMedia has already introduced a prequel sequence, Home of the Dragon, primarily based on Martin’s 2019 e book Hearth and Blood. And there are 5 tasks in growth primarily based on the Game of Thrones universe, THR experiences. Martin can be growing sequence for HBO primarily based on the novels Who Fears Loss of life and Roadmarks.
My worst worry, although, is that this big new deal retains Martin from engaged on the sixth e book within the A Tune of Ice and Hearth e book sequence, The Winds of Winter. The author stated in February that he wrote “tons of and tons of of pages” of The Winds of Winter in 2020, which was the “greatest 12 months” he’s had on the e book. Fingers crossed he’s been conserving that momentum going. The earlier title within the seven-book sequence, A Dance with Dragons, was launched in July 2011.
