Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin might soon have another hit TV show added to his repertoire with the HBO-claimed Cinemax requesting a pilot script of a novella he wrote in the 80s.
Titled Skin Trade, the repulsiveness novella recounts the narrative of a youthful criminologist researching homicides in which casualties are cleaned.
The story likewise elements Martin’s mark enchantment and supernatural quality with werewolves tossed in with the general mishmash.
“I am extremely eager to announce the Cinemax has optioned the TV rights to The Skin Trade, the offbeat “werewolf noir” novella I penned back in the late 80s,” Martin composed on his web journal.
“The arrangement is shut, and Cinemax has requested the pilot script. This being Hollywood, obviously, you never know where things will end… be that as it may, on the off chance that they like the script, we’ll shoot a pilot, and on the off chance that they like that, hey, who knows, possibly we’ll get an arrangement broadcasting live.”
The creator, be that as it may, says he won’t be as included with this arrangement as he has been with Game of Thrones.
“While I would love to compose the script and run the demonstrated to myself, that was never truly likely to work out,” Martin said on his web journal.
“I have this book [Game of Thrones] to wrap up.”
There have been longstanding gossipy tidbits that Game of Thrones will come full circle in a blockbuster film finale, something Martin himself has apparently given blended messages about as of late.
Martin apparently said at an Emmy Awards after-gathering that it was all event.
In any case, then in a blog entry Martin encouraged fans not to trust all that they read, “particularly not online”.
“I don’t know where this most recent round of ‘there will be a Game of Thrones motion picture’ hogwash is originating from, yet all of a sudden it is all over, and every one of us joined with the appear and HBO are being besieged,” he said. “Be that as it may, nothing has changed.”
Martin conceded that he may have been the first wellspring of the bits of gossip about an arrangement closure film “three or four years prior”.
In any case, generally as all trust was blurring, he included that the thought remained “intensely appealing”.
“Not just to me but to many people connected with the show,” he said. “Actors, executives, makers, scholars. How not? It would be an extraordinary approach to the end.”
