George R. R. Martin, the critically acclaimed writer of the infamous “A Game of Thrones” novel, is said to be roped in for an upcoming HBO series. HBO-owned Cinemax has recently acquired the right of 1989 novel sci-fi horror “The Skin Trade” written by Martin. Read on to find out more interesting revelation on George R. R. Martin and series ahead.
According to Vanity Fair, Martin is neither going to write for the upcoming series nor is going to run it himself. Cinemax and Martin have engaged “Nikita” and “Prison Break” writer Kalinda Vazquez for the job. Martin praised her for professionalism and added that her pitch for Cinemax as one of the most polished and professional move.
“Skin Trade” originally belongs to a horror fiction compilation “Dark Visions,” which compiles stories from author Stephen King and Dan Simmons too along with George R. R. Martin. “The Skin Trade” is a story of Randi Wade who happens to be a private investigator and her friend Willie Flambeaux, a werewolf.
The 67 year old author stated recently that he is interested to write the series but has a big task to finish a book, which is obviously indicated towards “Games of Thrones” from “A Song of Ice and Fire” series.
Although some of the observant readers pointed out the familiar terms used by George R.R. Martin earlier too while mentioned about the end of “Games of Thrones.” Well, for now the upcoming Cinemax series is buzzing the social media and is closely followed for the latest updates.
