The untitled Game of Thrones Prequel was co-written by George R.R. Martin and Jane Goldman. Clarkson will be directing the upcoming Star Trek 4 movie and was previously eyed to helm Bond 25 - which would have made her the first female to direct a film in the Bond franchise.

Along with the news came a rather substantial casting announcement.

Naomi Ackie (next appearing in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars), Denise Gough (Guerrilla, Tony-nominated for Angels in America), Jamie Campbell Bower (Sweeney Todd, Twilight, Mortal Instruments), Sheila Atim (Harlots), Ivanno Jeremiah (Black Mirror, Humans), Georgie Henley (The Chronicles of Narnia), Alex Sharp (To the Bone) and Toby Regbo (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindewald) have all been cast as series regulars.

But the forthcoming HBO prequel will introduce some very fresh faces to act alongside join Naomi Watts and Josh Whitehouse a pilot for the show, The Hollywood Reporter reveals. No information has been revealed as to the identity of these many characters, but given the Game of Thrones prequel setting of "thousands of years" prior to the events of the main series, ancestors, legendary heroes, and entirely new characters all remain viable options. From the horrifying secrets of Westeros's history to the true origin of the White Walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend, only one thing is for sure: "it's not the story we think we know".
