New details have emerged regarding the Game of Thrones sequel series in development that's centered on Jon Snow, who was played by Kit Harington. The Hollywood Reporter wrote that "saga creator George R.R. Martin and Thrones stars Emilia Clarke and Gwendoline Christie all weighed in on the project," with Martin revealing the working title is Snow.
Clarke noted in an interview with the BBC that Harington is deeply involved with the project: "He has told me about it... It's been created by Kit as far as I can understand, so he's in it from the ground up. So what you will be watching, hopefully, if it happens, is certified by Kit Harington."
Noting that there are four live-action GOT successor shows in development at HBO, Martin wrote on his blog: "Snow has been in development almost as long as the other three, but for whatever reason it was never announced and it never leaked... until now. But, yes, it is true.... There's not much more I can tell you, not until HBO gives me a green light.
"It seems as though Emilia Clarke has already mentioned that Snow was Kit's idea in a recent interview. So that part is out. Yes, it was Kit Harington who brought the idea to us. I cannot tell you the names of the writers/showrunners, since that has not been cleared for release yet... but Kit brought them in too, his own team, and they are terrific.
"Various rumors are floating around about my involvement, or lack of same. I am involved, just as I am with The Hedge Knight and The Sea Snake and Ten Thousand Ships, and all the animated shows. Kit's team have visited me here in Santa Fe and worked with me and my own team of brilliant, talented writer/consultants to hammer out the show.... Please note: nothing has been green lit yet, and there is no guarantee when or if it will be... on any of these shows. The likelihood of all four series getting on the air… well, I'd love it, but that's not the way it works, usually."
Answering the perennial question, Martin added: "Yes, Winds of Winter. No, have not forgotten. I was back with Tyrion this past week."
