It has been going around the social media now that George R.R. Martin proposed a crossover between the adaptation of his books, "Game of Thrones" and another HBO hit series "Westworld." Now, the creators of the latter have finally addressed the issue.
George R.R. Martin Pitches An Idea Of A Crossover Between "Westworld" and "Game of Thrones"
When author George R.R. Martin pitched the idea of a crossover between two hit HBO series "Game of Thrones" and "Westworld," the fans went ballistic. They got so excited with the idea that they believed it would actually come into fruition. However, the creators of "Westworld" have finally put an end to the countless scenarios and assumptions by addressing the issue head-on, saying it is unlikely to happen.
Much to the fans' dismay, the creators of "Westworld" declined the possibility of that ever happening, as for now at least. The show broke records during its premiere and they have gotten many positive remarks about their adaptation in 1973 of the same name. It is also no secret how successful "Game of Thrones" has been for the past years and the idea of the two breakthroughs coming as one isn't such a bad idea. However, it seems that way for Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy.
"Westworld" Creators Declined Offer But Does Not Close The Idea For The Future
The two creators admitted that George did in fact pitch the idea months ago over a private dinner, but they don't seem to agree with it. They admitted that they love George and he is a great author, but they believe they still have so much material planned for "Westworld" that a crossover might seem unlikely this early on in the show. Joy said that they all want that material to happen and to become real, but is not closing to the idea in the future.
The transition of millions of viewers to two shows might not be a good move for the network just about now, as they are two of the best shows to date and they stand independently from each other - which should stay that way at least for the time being.
