night king - HBO 'going huge' for Game of Thrones prequels, executives state

HBO executives are speaking about the last season of Game of Thrones and offering some tips about their prepare for a minimum of one prequel series.

Variety reports that the HBO brass were on a panel in Jerusalem at the INTV Conference where they guaranteed the dream hit will have a rewarding climax when it returns in2019 Francesca Orsi, HBO senior VP of drama, remembered going to a table checked out where the program’s primary cast gone through the last 6 scripts.

“It was amazing,” Orsi stated. “By the very end, everyone looked down and looked up and tears were in their eyes … None of the cast had received the scripts prior, and one by one they started falling down to their deaths.”

Actually, the cast did get their scripts prior to the table read, however some chosen not to read them and rather entered into the occasion unknowning their character’s fate.

Also, for some factor, that price estimate above is leading some publications to compose headings stating a lot of characters pass away in the program’s ending, which is, certainly, not exactly what she stated … however, naturally, may still take place.

Regarding the prequels, HBO has 5 scripts in contention for a minimum of one possible series order. “It feels like corporate malfeasance to not continue it,” Orsi stated of GoT, which has actually been the greatest moneymaker in the network’s history. “That’s why it spawned three, four, five spin-offs* … We’re going big.”

She likewise kept in mind that it’s a little bit of an argument behind the scenes what does it cost? to invest in a prequel. GoT began with a reasonably modest spending plan, which increased with each season (the last season has actually been approximated at around $15 million per episode). For the prequels, you cannot do a season 1 spending plan (since that would look low-cost in contrast to how GoT looks today) however because programs get more costly as they continue, you would not desire to begin with $15 million per episode either.

” If we do remove on among these Game of Thrones spin-offs, where do we begin?” Orsi stated. “We cannot certainly begin with the spending plan of season 8 however would it be a Game of Thrones season 3 spending plan?”

GoT returns in 2019.

* Technically the brand-new tasks are prequels, not spin-offs, because they are set prior to the occasions in Thrones and do not consist of any of the present cast.
