The pilot for the recently greenlit first spin-off of HBO’s epic fantasy series “Game of Thrones” is set to start filming in Belfast in October.
Currently going by the working title of “The Long Night,” the series is reportedly set to film at The Paint Hall in Belfast’s Titanic Quarters where ‘Thrones’ has used for filming.
Jane Goldman and George R.R. Martin created the series with Goldman writing the script. The story will be set thousands of years before the events of ‘Thrones’ and will chronicle ‘the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour’ including the true origin of the white walkers, the Stark family at its height and more.
