Projeto de spin-off de Game of Thrones desenvolvido por Bryan Cogman é cancelado

“My prequel show is not happening and will not happen.”

Quando a HBO anunciou que estavam a ser preparados vários projetos, um dele era da responsabilidade de Bryan Cogman, um dos roteiristas e produtor de Game of Thrones. Um dos projetos já segue em fase de produção, irá começar a ser gravado nos próximos meses o episódio piloto que ditará se a HBO seguirá em frente ou não com a série, e outros ainda estão em fase de desenvolvimento. Porém chega agora a notícia de que o projeto que estava a ser desenvolvido por Bryan foi cancelado.

I’m definitely leaving. I was developing one of the successor shows with George. George has worked with a bunch of the writers, including Jane [Goldman], whose show is being done [as a pilot]. My prequel show is not happening and will not happen. HBO decided to go a different way. I’m working with Amazon now and helping them out with their shows. So, it is a goodbye. I am done with Westeros. It’s wonderfully bittersweet. I’ll certainly miss it, but I’m excited to go out on my own and try to be in the captain’s chair of my own projects, armed with everything I’ve learned. I’ve learned more than I could possibly imagine from eight seasons of this thing. It’s been wonderful to look back and watch some of the old episodes, and see some of our old friends at the premiere recently, and to know that we’ve done something good. We’ve done good work that people enjoy. That’s all an entertainer can ever hope for. I’m eager to start the next chapter, but a part of my heart will always live with Game of Thrones. That’s one of the reasons why this episode was so important to me. It was a goodbye and a love letter to these characters and to this cast.

Bryan Cogman

Bryan diz que o projeto que estava a desenvolver com George R.R. Martin não seguiu para a frente, por decisão da estação,que decidiu seguir por um rumo diferente. Ele afirma que o episódio “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” foi a sua despedida de Westeros, o seu último trabalho no universo de Gelo e Fogo. O autor confessasse sair com um sabor agridoce por deixar para trás algo que o vai fazer sentir imensa falta, mas que ao mesmo tempo leva consigo uma boa dose de experiência com tudo o que aprendeu nos últimos anos. Ele termina referindo que este último episódio foi um adeus e uma carta de amor para essas personagens e para o elenco.

Bryan irá agora abraçar outros projetos na Amazon.
