Yesterday, we asked a question that caused many of you to react quite fervently: why does George R.R. Martin, writer of the epic fantasy novel series, “A Song of Ice and Fire” that led to HBO’s series “Game of Thrones” want to make a movie about it, too? Shouldn’t an Emmy Award-winning series be enough?
Naturally, there were many, many opinions on the matter! Like, a lot a lot — over 10,000 comments on the post to our Facebook page alone. So we culled through all of them (really) and found the general consensus as to what it is you’d want from a “Game of Thrones” film. So take note, Hollywood executives. If you want to make the people happy, this is what you’ll do.
1. All of the Same Actors — No Question
2. A Prequel with Robert’s Rebellion and the Fall of the Targaryens
3. Something Based on the Short Stories?
4. Or Another Prequel, Showcasing Some Other Pre-Thrones Battles
5. Ooh, Ooh, Ooh: Something About North of the Wall
6. Lots and Lots and Lots and LOTS of Action
7. Benedict Cumberbatch as Aerys Targaryen, The Mad King?
8. Or Maybe Just One About Tyrion Growing Up
9. If It Covers The Final Book, Broken into 3 Films That are Crazy-Long Like “Lord of the Rings”
10. …For It to Not Exist At All
