According to the man himself, the Pirates of the Caribbean filmmaker is attached to direct a movie adaptation of Sandkings, which is based on a novelette from A Song of Ice and Fire and Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin. This would be the first film for Verbinski since 2016’s A Cure for Wellness, which made approximately $26 million worldwide on a reported $40 million budget.

Winds of Winter Release Date

Who knew it would take a pandemic-induced quarantine to get George R.R. Martin to finally finish his long-awaited sixth novel in his ongoing A Song of Ice and Fire series? Honestly, we wouldn’t expect anything less from the notorious procrastinator.
