Game of Thrones movie being 'actively discussed'

Would you watch a Game of Thrones movie?

With George R.R Martin still needing to write two books no-one really knows how 'Game of Thrones' will end. However another issue that has arisen thanks to the television show is how we will see the ending, with the possibility of a Game of Thrones movie.

There's no denying that a two hour extended episode of 'Game of Thrones' with a big movie blockbuster budget could be the best thing anyone of us will ever see, but as it stands each season of 'Game of Thrones' is already like a movie in terms of sheer scope and storytelling.

But how likely is a 'Game of Thrones' movie? After all it is a hit fantasy television show and part of its allure and appeal is the fact that we're getting almost movie quality entertainment on our televisions on weekly basis, would the show transfer well over to the silver screen?

Well George R.R Martin's comments earlier this year suggested that a movie was very much a possibility saying "It all depends on how long the main series runs... Do we run for seven years? Do we run for eight? Do we run for 10? The books get bigger and bigger (in scope). It might need a feature to tie things up, something with a feature budget, like $100 million for two hours. Those dragons get real big, you know."

Martin also expressed that there was a possibility of several spin-offs such as a big-screen movie based on his "Dunk and Egg" stories, which take place years before the main book series and involve people who are related to the Game of Thrones characters we know now.

But honestly it all depends on how streamlined showrunners David Benioff and D.B Weiss make the television show compared to the books, the show is already advancing slightly faster than the books are at this stage and HBO is envisioning a seven/eight season run.

So, would you want to see a Game of Thrones movie? Or how about a spin-off movie showing the 'Dunk and Egg' stories, or perhaps the events just before 'Game of Thrones' like the Mad Kings' reign and Roberts Rebellion?
