They debate whether or not a movie could work, what GRRM’s interest in a “Thrones” movie indicates for the ending of “A Song of Ice and Fire,” whether or not prequels or flashbacks could work as movies, and more.
** In related GRRM news, the Book Club hosts talk about George R.R. Martin flipping the bird and dropping an F-bomb regarding questions of his health, and the possibility that he’ll die before finishing his series.
