Game of Thrones was a memorable experience for both the fans and the show’s crew. Rarely do we see a TV show achieve massive popularity as Game of Thrones did in the last decade. Many of the show’s crew have moved on to new projects, including showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. They are working on a new sci-fi Netflix show the Three-Body Problem, and it seems they have found their director in Better Days fame Derek Tsang.

The reveal marks the first piece of official news about the mysterious project since it was announced last year. Three-Body Problem is set to be the first series with writer-producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss serving as showrunners since HBO’s Game of Thrones. Alexander Woo (The Terror: Infamy) also serves as a co-creator, writer and executive producer.

Benioff and Weiss, along with Alexander Woo are working together to adapt Liu Cixin’s bestseller “Three-Body Problem” for Netflix. The series will be covering all three books of the trilogy, namely, “The Three-Body Problem,” “The Dark Forest,” and “Death’s End.” The story revolves around the idea of humanity’s first contact with aliens. Netflix struck a deal with Yoozoo group for the rights to make an English adaptation of the trilogy.

Agent 007, James Bond, is probably one of the most famous fictional spies of all time. The character has been a pop culture icon, through various hit movies over decades amassing a faithful and ever-increasing fan following. Fans of James Bond are still reeling over the absolutely devastating ending of No Time To Die, which saw Daniel Craig’s story as 007 come to a definitive end. Going forward, a new actor is set to take over as the British super spy. And one particular actor from another famous franchise is leading the race by leaps and bounds.

Game of Thrones star Richard Madden, famous for playing Robb Stark in HBO’s epic fantasy and soon-to-be Marvel superhero in the movie Eternals, seems to be the top choice amongst the fans to be the next James Bond. Madden is leading the race by a staggering 9 to 4 odds against his closest competitor, Tom Hardy, who has been long speculated to be the next Bond in line.

Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati said: “It’s all change at the head of the Bond betting with Richard Madden now running away with things as far as the odds are concerned.”

Lights, Camera, and… Action! Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon has begun filming in the Spanish city of Caceres. Starting October 11, the shooting will take place over a period of 10 days, and will be wrapped up by October 21. Several pictures from the set are already leaking out on social media platforms, as curious locals try to capture a sneak peek at the set. Fans have been speculating for long about who’s who in the upcoming prequel series, and it seems we have the answer to one of them.

Curious fans have been tinkering with ideas as to why HBO has kept the casting of some important characters of the series under wraps, for instance, the last rider of the dragon Vhagar, Prince Aemond Targaryen, the one-eyed. Although we don’t know why, we do have a first look at the controversial character.

Aemond Targaryen was the brother to Aegon II Targaryen and the son of Queen Alicent Hightower, and also the last rider of the biggest dragon at the time Vhagar. Though it is not clear from the picture, some are speculating Ewan Mitchell of The Last Kingdom might be playing the role.
