Game of Thrones spin-off

Bryan Cogman has spent the past ten years of his life immersed in the fictional world of Westeros, first as a writers assistant to the Game of Thrones showrunners and then quickly graduating to a staff writer and producer on the show. (He wrote the most recent episode, “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms,” which is one of our favorite episodes of the series.)

With Game of Thrones coming to an end this season, HBO has been developing prequel and spin-off ideas with A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin and several other writers. Only one of them has been approved at this point, and in a recent interview, Cogman confirms that the Game of Thrones spin-off he was working on is no longer happening. Read More »

Game of Thrones song

Brienne of Tarth’s faithful squire Podrick Payne sang a beautiful, haunting song during the most recent episode of Game of Thrones. The song, “Jenny of Oldstones,” was performed by Florence + The Machine over the show’s closing credits, and you can hear that performance in a video below.

But what do those lyrics have to do with the show, and what do they portend for our surviving heroes? Join us for a quick trip through the history of Westeros as we search for answers. Read More »

Chaos Walking reshoots

Chaos Walking, the film adaptation of Patrick Ness’s young adult book trilogy, has been in development since 2011. Director Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Edge of Tomorrow) and actors Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland came on board in 2016 and it started filming the next year, with an intended release date of March 1, 2019. As you may have noticed, that date has come and gone and the film still hasn’t hit theaters.

Now we know why. According to a new report, the film was “deemed unreleasable” in its initial form, and after spending $100 million already, Lionsgate is now spending millions more on three weeks of reshoots. Yikes. Read More »
