Two new ‘Game of Thrones’ animated shows in the works at HBO, live action project ‘Flea Bottom' cancelled

The ever-sprawling universe of Game of Thrones recently had two major additions, pushing the boundaries of the known world in the Martinverse. So far we know House of The Dragon is the only prequel in the works so far, and we can expect it to arrive quite early in 2022. However, rumours keep popping up everywhere there are more prequels/spinoffs in talks, and HBO chief Casey Bloys doesn’t deny that.

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, HBO Max is working on developing two animated shows inspired by Game of Thrones. That brings the tally of Game of Thrones-based animated shows to three. Back in January, it was known one animated series was already under development. However, there’s still not much known about that series.

However, we do have some news regarding the newer ones. One of them will take place in the Golden Empire of Yi Ti. A region in the continent of Essos that is home to one of the oldest and most advanced societies in author George R.R. Martin’s sprawling fantasy world. Yi Ti is reportedly inspired by Imperial China, just as Westeros was said to have been inspired by Medieval Europe. Yi Ti was briefly referenced on Game of Thrones, though the Sea Snake, a character in HBO’s upcoming prequel series House of the Dragon. 

However, there is some bad news as well. HBO is no longer moving forward with the rumoured live-action TV series ‘Flea Bottom‘. Flea Bottom would have taken place in the poorest district of King’s Landing. It was cancelled in the early stages and never officially confirmed by HBO.

Which of the upcoming series got you excited? Tell us in the comments below!

Peter Dinklage to develop new projects with Game of Thrones exec Michael Lombardo

Peter Dinklage new deal

The biggest show of the 21st century, Game of Thrones, was in danger of being cancelled in its preliminary stage. The original pilot episode filmed by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss was botched beyond imagination, costing HBO a fortune. However, due to constant nagging by the delirious duo, and while also seeing the huge potential of the story of the show, the then HBO head Michael Lombardo greenlit the TV adaptation of George R. R. Martin’s famed novel series. Lombardo has now joined hands with Game of Thrones alum Peter Dinklage to work on future showbiz projects.

Peter Dinklage new deal

Peter Dinklage will soon collaborate with his Game of Thrones executive to develop some new projects. He has been signed on a multiple-year overall TV deal with Entertainment One which will reunite him with Michael Lombardo, the former HBO head of originals who greenlit Game of Thrones. Michael Lombardo joined eOne as global television president in June 2020. Peter Dinklage’s Estauray Films (that he co-founded alongside David Ginsberg) will create and develop new projects for multiple platforms for the indie studio.

“I am delighted to be reunited with Peter and Brad as well as their partner David,” Lombardo said on Wednesday. “The team at Estuary has both wonderful creative taste as well as outstanding relationships with the industry, and we look forward to bringing many exciting projects to life together.”

Peter Dinklage is the second Game of Thrones alum to head to eOne with an overall deal under Lombardo and joins Emmy-winning director Bryan Cogman, who already has multiple projects in the works for the studio. Dinklage will also be starring in the upcoming R-rated superhero film The Toxic Avenger.

Game of Thrones and Aquaman star Jason Momoa announces his ‘Dream Project’

Jason Momoa Dream project

Game of Thrones was one of the most popular shows of all time, and as with any show or film the actors have to stay in their best shape to breathe life into their portrayal. Jason Momoa, who played Khal Drogo on the show, is definitely one of the fittest actors in Hollywood currently. His fitness regime consists of a lot of heavy lifting (he absolutely hates yoga) and his favourite outdoor sport rock-climbing. That’s why he was very happy when he announced his next project, which deals extensively with this adrenaline-filled activity. The actor has announced his latest project, the HBO Max reality competition show The Climb. And he describes the project as his ‘dream come true’.

Jason Momoa Dream project

According to Digital Spy, The Climb will follow a group of amateur rock climbers as they travel around the world, taking up challenges along the way. The show will contain eight episodes, so there will be plenty of gruelling tasks for viewers to enjoy. Each contestant will compete for the title of World’s Best Amateur Rock Climber but news of a cash prize is currently unknown. Momoa will be executive producing the series alongside professional rock climber Chris Sharma.

Momoa said, “It’s a dream come true to create a show with one of my idols, my good friend and legendary climber Chris Sharma. I’m thrilled to be partnering with HBO Max and to produce alongside IPC to bring you this incredible show about my favourite sport, rock climbing.”

Game of Thrones’ Hannah Waddingham (Septa Unella) was groped on ‘Benidorm’ set

Game of Thrones’ Hannah Waddingham (Septa Unella) was groped on ‘Benidorm' set

We are living in the 21st century, and with all the technological advancements humanity has witnessed we still can’t guarantee the safety of the other half of the human race. Crimes against women don’t seem to stop, be it on the streets or within the four walls of a room. These blood-boiling incidents show the lack of morality and a genuine sense of respect in the minds of such animalistic ‘gentlemen’. Game of Thrones star Hannah Waddingham, famous for playing Septa Unella on the show, recently revealed she was groped on set while filming the ITV show Benidorm.

Waddingham played Tonya Dyke in the sixth season of the show, which aired back in 2014. “I’d never been groped in my life, but I was groped three times in one week in Benidorm,” she told The Mirror.

Without naming any cast or crew member specifically, Waddingham said, “To get on set, I had to walk through the hotel dressed as Tonya in some non-existent bikini and high heels with blokes gawping at me… or rather groping me.”

“I had to stop myself doing what I’d instinctively do – knock their blocks off – because I was working. A little angel on my shoulder was going, ‘Leave it, Hannah’. But I really wanted to take off my five-inch wedges and whack them.”

A few months ago, Game of Thrones star Esmé Bianco accused Marilyn Manson of sexual assault. It seems women are not safe anywhere. How can we curb such instances of violence against women? Tell us in the comments below!
