Martin is also connected to projects outside of HBO. Peacock is working on Wild Cards, based on a series of novels written by Martin and others. The author’s In the Lost Lands, a collection of short stories of fantastic adventures, is developed as a feature film, with Paul WS Anderson attached to the directing and Milla Jovovich and Dave Bautista ready to star.
On top of that, Martin said that he hopes to end the winds of winter at some point by the end of this year.
The news comes a week after HBO confirmed plans to develop three new Game of Thrones spin-offs. The first carries the working title 10,000 Ships and follows House Martell’s ancestor Princess Nymeria through events set a millennium before the events of Game of Thrones. The second takes place in Flea Bottom, the King’s Landing slum that featured in the first four seasons of Thrones. The final project is developed by the creator of Rome Bruno Heller under the working title 9 Voyages. He would follow Lord Corlys Velaryon, also known as the Sea Snake.
