Life What ?! The Game of Thrones prequel is unexpectedly deleted By weekster Posted on 2 weeks ago 1 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ HBO scraps the prequel from the hit series Game of Thrones that was planned. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Tuesday. The pilot of the series with actress Naomi Watts in the lead roles was already included. The Game of Thrones spinoff would take place thousands of years before Game of Thrones. The story would describe the decline of the world during the golden age of the heroes. The idea for a Game of Thrones prequel came from the British screenwriter Jane Goldman and Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin. It was not clear what role Watts played. It is also not yet known why this prequel was deleted exactly. Another prequel series that George R.R. Martin is also developing, by the way, seems to be continuing. According to THR, the contracts for this will soon be signed. This prequel, which would go back more to the original, should also be on show at HBO, which also broadcasted the original series with the Dutch actors Carice van Houten and Michiel Huisman in important supporting roles.
