The one-hour show will be based on the fictional series he has written George R. R. Martin, Which follows the adventures of Sir Duncan Hill (Dunk) and Aegon’s youth in Targaryen (Egg) 90 years before the events of “The Song of Ice and Fire.”
Martin has published three new novels in the “Tales of Dunk and Egg” series so far: “The Hedge Knight” in 1998, “Sworn Sword” in 2003, and “The Mystery Knight” in 2010. Then the three novels were combined. They were published together as “The Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” in 2015.
There is no writer or talent currently associated with the project, but sources say it is a top priority for HBO as the outstanding cable driver looks to build on the success of “Game of Thrones”
Representatives of HBO and Martin declined to comment.
If the project goes into a series, this will be the second installment of “Game of Thrones” to show on screen. The network is currently preparing Dragon House series Which is set to start in 2022. This show will document the build-up of Targaryen Civil War in Westeros, known as the Dragon Dance.
Fans have been calling for “Tales of Dunk and Egg” for some time now. There were hopes that when HBO announced a number of sub-versions of “Game of Thrones” were in the pipeline in 2017, new novels would be among the contenders for its series selection, but Martin later said there were no plans to adapt the books at that time. .
Of course, just because a series is in development doesn’t necessarily mean it will move forward. Another prequel titled “Game of Thrones” written by Jane Goldman and starring Naomi Watts, she went to work as a pilot for HBO but It was finally surpassed in 2019.
