Not Making Same Mistake Twice, HBO Turns Down New Game Of Thrones Pilot

HBO once went forward with a poorly made pilot once before, with the Game Of Thrones showrunners Dan Weiss and David Benioff calling their initial pilot a “piece of shit.” The network doesn’t want to make that same mistake again.

The proposed Game Of Thrones prequel written by Jane Goldman and starring Naomi Watts has filmed a pilot but HBO is passing on the project. It took place thousands of years before the events of Game Of Thrones.

The pilot, which was written by Goldman and directed by S.J. Clarkson, not going on comes after a lengthy post-production and rumors about issues during filming in Northern Ireland.

Maybe if the pilot was recast, rewritten, and reshot like Weiss and Beioff did with Game Of Thrones, HBO would’ve gone forward.
