Charles Dance who use to play wealthy Lord Tywin Lannister on HBO’s “Game of Thrones” spilled the beans recently about a possible big screen adaptation. The show based on George R. R. Martin’s fantasy novel series has taken the world by storm and has gained fans ever since the first episode was launched back in April 2011. It comes as no surprise that producers of the multi-award winning show have been actively discussing a possible movie adaptation.
Dance told The Daily Beast:
“There’s talk of eventually trying to do a feature film,” “But I don’t know which of the storylines. There’s so much to cram into a film.”
[Spoiler Alert] The 68-year-old English actor was axed from the show when his character was killed by off by Peter Dinklage’s Tyrion Lannister, his onscreen son. In the fourth season, HBO said that its average gross audience of 18.4 million viewers, later adjusted to 18.6 million, had beaten The Sopranos for the record. Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau are among the regulars that will be returning for season 5, scheduled to be released next year.
Fans are already complaining that Martin is taking too long to write the books. I don’t think a movie would be ideal if the series has not run its course yet, unless Hollywood is prepared to spoil it for us!
