Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin is one of the most accomplished writers of recent times. The success of the TV adaptation of his novels increased his number of readers exponentially. However, for nearly a decade, he hasn’t been able to write the next book in the novel series A Song of Ice and Fire, known as the ‘Winds of Winter‘. Game of Thrones TV show has already ended, and he’s on his way to producing an animated TV short film with Vincent D’Onofrio.

Martin posted the first teaser trailer for the film on his blog Not A Blog with a note:

“We wrapped principal photography on NIGHT OF THE COOTERS back in August, you may recall. That’s our adaptation of the classic short story by the one and only Howard Waldrop. Shot entirely in greenscreen in Santa Fe, from a screenplay by Joe Lansdale. Directed by Vincent d’Onofrio, who also starred. After that we turned it over to the wizards at Trioscope, who have been busily working on it ever since with their groundbreaking animation process.

They’re still working. It’s our hope to have a finished film by February, maybe March.

Meanwhile, though, we did put together a short teaser trailer for COOTERS. We debuted it in Montreal at the World Fantasy Con, where Howard received the Lifetime Achievement Award. And we screened it again during the Trioscope panel at the recent San Diego Comicon (which Vincent and I joined via Zoom).

And now we can share it with all of you.

Enjoy.

The Cooters are Coming!”
