HB..OH? A Game of Drones.

by James Murphy

HBO: You are idiots. Here’s why. 

 

 

  • So they just CANCELLED a full series for a GAME OF THRONES Prequel. But they did shoot a pilot. Which nobody has seen air, even though it MIGHT have been a massive hit? This is very, very silly, indeed:
  • YOU CAST NAOMI WATTS! ACTUAL NAOMI. Sought after. Screen siren, STAR! A great actress. Sexy, too. Surely booking her at all was tough to secure? So, abandoning the whole project, now? A colossal waste of cash. And of her time and talent! You could have easily worked her into another iteration. Would have gone brilliantly with Harry Lloyd, too (lovely chap, rising star: met him a few years back and he was great on stage, too; I even recommended him for  big Hollywood role).

  • You cast MIRANDA RICHARDSON! NOT an easy name to get in any film /tv show..ever. NOTORIOUSLY choosy /fussy! The very thought of her and Naomi sharing the screen was a USP in itself!
  • You had JANE GOLDMAN as STAFF WRITER!! That’s a name who can now command $$$ in the big bucks variety for Hollywood comic book blockbusters. You had her, on team, on site: and you’ve let that facility go, too? Very odd.
  • You have thereby added to this myth that Benioff and Weiss are somehow irreplaceable visionaries, rather than show-runners who got lucky via an obscure yet plentiful property for adaptation. They are doing very well, in any event, with Netflix accommodating their every whim and Star Wars being very apologetic for not deploying them in some ‘new trilogy’ (translation..we want them, and indeed, Star Wars, focused almost entirely now on streaming /television and when the time is right..).

 

  • Above all? YOU HAD CAST NAOMI WATTS! We now lose a dream of forever being able to download a show in which the actress would have worn medieval-ish fantasy costumes..the closest we will EVER get to the ULTIMATE fantasy of Naomi Watts, dressed as SHE-RA! (What do you mean’it’s just my fantasy?’. )
  • ONE Benefit? I no longer now have to invest time, money and fake interest in the old Game of Thrones show just because they have a hot spin off coming with my most favouritest actress in it! Every cloud..
