Over the weekend Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin revealed that the first GoT prequel will be titled, The Long Night. Now it has been uncovered that HBO, who broadcasts the hit show, is not too pleased with Martin’s reveal. Always going through great lengths to keep things under wraps, Martin informed fans that HBO reached out to clarify the GoT prequel may not be called The Long Night and the series still remains untitled.
According to Martin’s blog:
“HBO has informed me that the Jane Goldman pilot is not (yet) titled THE LONG NIGHT. That is certainly the title I prefer, but for the moment the pilot is still officially UNTITLED. So… mea culpa, mea culpa, mea culpa. Elsewise, the pilot is coming along well, with casting falling into place. I could tell you more, but I am not supposed to. We also have a couple of other successor shows still in development, but I cannot tell you about those either. Sorry. And some exciting things are happening with the Wild Cards television series, but I can’t talk about those… Hush hush, it’s Hollywood, they like news to come through officially approved channels out there.”
Martin also touched upon his long-awaited novel Winds of Winter, “I am working hard on a lot of things (yes, including WINDS), even though I am not allowed to talk about most of them. Eventually, I hope, you’ll all be able to enjoy the fruits of my labors.”
