  • Game Thrones Prequel Series Naomi Watts

Actress Naomi Watts has reportedly been tapped to lead the cast in a Game of Thrones prequel series. Watts's character will be a socialite with a dark secret, and that's about all we know about her so far.

The Game of Thrones prequel has found its star.

Casting announcement: The Game of Thrones prequel pilot will feature Josh Whitehouse, 28, alongside Naomi Watts, and is purportedly titled The Long Night. Indeed, Tumblr is ablaze with gifs of Whitehouse's Hugh Armitage, as well it should be.

Watts' involvement adds serious star power to the pilot, though if this is the Westeros we know, she may not see the series through to its conclusion.

The GoT prequel is from writer Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Secret Service, X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass) and Martin and is expected to film early next year. After all, thousands of years is a major jump to past events, and there's no telling what manner of dark and sinister forces were looming in the darkness back then. The series is still untitled, but author George R.R. Martin has said that he would like it to be called "The Long Night", and has been referring to it as such.

Austerity can't end without considerable investment in the economy and increase in the purchasing power of the people. That will go down well with Conservative MPs anxious that their party's unpopularity could see them lose their seats.

"Meanwhile, there are still a couple of other possible prequels in active development", Martin wrote.

Production on the final season of Game of Thrones wrapped this summer. In HBO's released outline, the show will also tell the story of how the White Walkers rose from out of the cold.so maybe they had something to do with that Long Night.

Goldman is serving as showrunner and will executive produce alongside Martin as well as fellow Game of Thrones executive producer Vince Gerardis and co-creator/executive producer Daniel Zelman (Damages, Bloodline).

According to Entertainment Weekly the series will take place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones.
