Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon gets leading man


The Recreation of Thrones’ prequel is one step nearer to burning up your TV. House of the Dragon, based mostly on George R.R. Martin’s Fireplace and Blood anthology on the Targaryen household, has forged a number one man: HBO announced Monday that Paddy Considine will play Viserys Targaryen.

Considine was beforehand featured in Scorching Fuzz, The Borne Ultimatum, Peaky Blinders and 2020 HBO sequence The Outsider. Viserys Targaryen is a “heat, sort and first rate man,” reads a synopsis for his character, “however good males don’t essentially make for excellent kings.”

Home of the Dragon happens 300 years earlier than the Recreation of Thrones and is ready for a 10-episode first season. Fireplace and Blood, the e book the present is predicated on, was launched in 2018 by Martin. It is the primary of two volumes Martin intends to launch chronicling Targaryen kings. 

Home of the Dragon lists Martin and Ryan Condal, producer of 2014’s Hercules and 2018’s Rampage, as co-creators. Condal and Miguel Sapochnik, a earlier director of six Recreation of Thrones episodes, are showrunners, changing the franchise’s well-known showrunning duo of D.B. Weiss and David Benioff.

There is no date for a launch but, however HBO head Casey Bloys stated in January that his “finest guess” is that it will debut in 2022. Martin said on his site final October that Condal has already performed “a substantial quantity of writing.” 

And talking of launch dates, we nonetheless don’t have one for Winds of Winter. Unhappy trombone.
