George RR Martin has said a Game of Thrones movie is on the way, according to reports.

The A Song of Ice and Fire author was attending an HBO party put on after the Emmy’s when he made the huge announcement.

Daily Star on Sunday were apparently told by Martin: “There will be a movie but I will not be involved.

“I have too much to do. That is something HBO and the DB Weiss and David Beioff are dealing with. I have two more books to finish and I still have so much to do.

“The pressure is on. I am such a slow writer and the fans get upset that I don’t write faster.”

This should, of course, be taken with a huge pinch of salt. If we’re to take anything substantial away from the report it is that the author is concentrating his efforts on finishing The Winds of Winter rather than on a movie (thank the New Gods).

The report goes on to quote an insider who claims the film will likely be a prequel, allowing dead characters to return once more.
