It's Official: There Will Be A Game Of Thrones Movie

Holy crap, holy crap, holy crap. This is not a joke!

George R.R. Martin was giving an interview to the Daily Star where he was quoted saying: "There will be a movie (...) some of the big characters who fans have seen die on screen could be resurrected." 

The movie will be a sort of prequel to the existing series and will explore the early history and origin of certain characters.

That means Ned Stark might get the screen time he deserves. We might see how The Red Viper of Dorne got his nickname. And who wouldn't love to see the Mad King sitting on the Iron Throne? The movie is not yet in the works but with so much fan enthusiasm and with the blessing of George R.R. Martin, HBO would be completely out of their minds NOT to make this movie.
