Game of Thrones intro

Game of Thrones prequel series is something all fans look forward to in the era of the long night – we will soon have once the main series ends. While a couple of days ago we reported a number of filming updates like the Cushendon Caves being used again for the pilot, today bring you another big update right from the prime filming location of Belfast.

Well, the hopes are high for the prequel series and as Richard Plepler says, they are trying their best to “re-engineer the genes of what Game of Thrones was”. Recently, one of our sources sent us pictures of the Titanic Studios of Belfast in Northern Ireland and reported the appearance of green screens in and around the set. If you’ve been a Game of Thrones fan like me, you would know that most of the filming of the epic series was done here and now we seem to have room for more.

Here are a few photographs:

While the construction of the set was previously reported, these green screens only mean that the pilot is ready to start filming and we can soon expect some more updates.

And, there’s more interesting news as our source tells us that David Nutter might return to direct the pilot for the prequel and he was seen in Belfast recently.

Nutter has directed three episodes in the ongoing final season of Game of Thrones namely Episode 1 (Winterfell), Episode 2 (A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms) and Episode 4 (The Last of the Starks). So, we can hope for more from him in the prequel series.

Update: We now have a better look at the wooden structure that is being built and the huge screen. Also, you can see that cargo containers have been placed in front of the set to hide it.

Game of Thrones’ Michiel Huisman (Daario Naharis) stars in American Dream trailer

Game of Thrones had a long list of lost/underused characters. Fans have often wondered what happened to them, as the books aren’t complete yet. One of them was Michiel Huisman’s Daario Naharis. The handsome lover of Daenerys was last seen in the episode ‘The Winds of Winter’. Daenerys left her brave confidante in Meereen to maintain peace. Even the actor along with the fans waited till the last season for the character to return. Well, we didn’t get to see Daario again, but we can see Huisman return to the big screen. Michiel Huisman is back in action with crime drama American Dream.

Lionsgate has released a trailer for director Janusz Kaminski’s upcoming crime thriller American Dream. The movie stars Luke Bracey and Michiel Huisman as struggling entrepreneurs. They find themselves as the target of a Russian mobster (Nick Stahl) after they refuse his funding offer.

Desperate for cash, entrepreneurs Scott (Luke Bracey, Point Break [2015]) and Nicky (Michiel Huisman) turn to Russian mobster Yuri (Nick Stahl, Sin City). After they refuse the funding he offers, Yuri gets revenge by trying to take over their construction project. The partners are terrified until Nicky’s tough Russian girlfriend Ana (Agnieszka Grochowska) decides to take action herself.

American Dream will air in January 2021. Are you excited about the crime drama? Talk to us in the comments below!

A Weirdwood tree has popped up on the sets of Game of Thrones prequel, Bloodmoon

Game of Thrones prequel series Bloodmoon was ordered by HBO for a pilot, which means that the show is now filming, even though it’s for just one episode. Now, we have previously reported about the show’s ongoing filming, but today we have a familiar development on the sets. Read on!

As you might know, Bloodmoon is filming in Northern Ireland, as we expected it to. We also recently talked about the show’s simultaneous filming at Gaeta, Italy, and how we could have gotten what is possibly the first look at Naomi Watts in her character costume. There was another confirmation of her presence at the Italy shoots:

Moving back to the Northern Ireland sets, we have a bigger development. The sets we have seen till now have mostly looked like parts of a big cave rig, and now a Weirwood tree has popped up on the sets:

We knew the Children of the Forest were going to be a part of the storyline, so as such it’s not a surprise to see a Weirwood tree pop up. What do you guys think? Excited yet? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones prequel Bloodmoon is filming in Italy

Game of Thrones finally ended after an almost decade long run, and HBO isn’t wasting any time. The first approved prequel series to the show had begun the early stages of production recently, with the working title of ‘Bloodmoon‘. The show had begun filming in Northern Ireland, but reports are now saying that the show is also filming in Italy. Read on!

The official source for Game of Thrones news, Entertainment Weekly revealed that the filming on the pilot episode of the Game of Thrones prequel, Bloodmoon, has “quietly begun” in Northern Ireland. We also had some exclusive pictures of the locations being prepared for filming. Now, filming news for the show is coming from the Italian town of Gaeta, at Grotta del Turco, where the prequel is filming, according to local news outlet Il Messaggero:

The place matches what we have seen in Northern Ireland, where the filming will be in cave-like environments. A cave rig has also been built at the Titanic Studios at Belfast.

This is the first time for Westeros to find a location in Italy, with Spain being the closest it ever got.

In case you don’t remember, the prequel is helmed by Jane Goldman, along with George R. R. Martin. S. J. Clarkson has been hired to direct the pilot. The show has an ensemble cast starring Naomi Watts, Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, Miranda Richardson, Josh Whitehouse, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sheila Atim, Ivanno Jeremiah, Alex Sharp and Toby Regbo.

The pilot will decide whether the show gets picked up for full production. Bloodmoon is expected to air in late 2020 or early 2021. We’ll be updating you about the prequel as it progresses.
