HBO Cancels Game Of Thrones Prequel Starring Naomi Watts


The Game of Thrones prequel series is not moving forward, with HBO scrapping plans for the show from showrunner Jane Goldman and starring Naomi Watts. The prequel was set to take place thousands of years before the original series and the network shot a full pilot episode in Northern Ireland earlier this year.

A second GoT prequel project focusing on the Targaryen Civil War, however, was given the green light — called House of the Dragon.
