Game of Thrones is developing a fifth spin-off show from the writer of its best ever scene
If you're missing Game of Thrones, you'll love this news.
What's the greatest ever Game of Thrones scene? The massacre at Hardhome? Ned Stark's execution at the end of Baelor? How about the visceral gut-punch that's The Red Wedding? Maybe you prefer the fiery carnage that Daenerys unleashed on the Lannister forces during the Loot Train attack.
While all of these are excellent shouts, we're opting for another one. Do you remember Tyrion's epic speech in Season 4's The Laws of Gods and Men when he demanded a trail by combat?
The sheer emotion, anger and hatred that Peter Dinklgae expressed in that scene was absolutely breathtaking.
"I saved you. I saved this city. All your worthless lives. I should have let Stannis kill you all," he said before adding "I did not kill Joffrey, but I wish that I had! Watching your vicious bastard die gave me more relief than a thousand lying whores!"
It's a marvelous piece of acting and if any Game of Thrones fans love that scene, they're in luck.
We already know that there are four possible Game of Thrones prequels in the works but is a fifth show is being development by HBO.
According to Entertainment Weekly, "co-executive producer Bryan Cogman is penning a drama series follow-up to the Emmy-winning blockbuster."
Cogman has worked closely with Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin and he has been on board since the first season where he was an assistant to David Benioff and Dan Weiss both of whom have declined to be associated with any of the new shows.
Cogman has been involved in some fantastic pieces of writing on the show including numerous episodes such as: "The Laws of Gods and Men," "Kissed by Fire" and "Stormborn."
As of yet, there are no details available about the plot of the new prequel but as a whole, it is set to explore time periods in the world of Westeros before the events of Thrones and will not involve any members of the current cast.
Also, Martin has revealed that two fan-favourite narratives are not under consideration: Robert's Rebellion and The Tales of Dunk and Egg.
At present, here are the five writers that are currently working on new shows alongside George R.R Martin. As of yet, HBO have not confirmed how many, or which of these writers, will have their show commissioned.
Here are the writers that will be developing the new projects:
Max Borenstein (Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island)
Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass, Kingsman and X-Men franchises)
Brian Helgeland (Mystic River, A Knights Tale)
Carly Wray (AMC’s Mad Man),
Bryan Cogman (Game of Thrones and The Sword in the Stone)
