And now it seems to lack direction... According to Bleeding Cool... the Nee brothers have jumped ship and the movie is 2020 TBD...
I'd put a surprised reaction if this had truly caught me by surprise... but given the lack of cast, this was expected. Seeing the directors leave is complety logical, since it seems SONY is dragging their feet with this project.
My prediction no movie is going to happen in 2020. They will shop for a new director, then followed by new screenwriters, maybe dangle possible miscasts, but nothing will be set in stone.
Right now I have a competition which will happen first George "slowass" RR Martin will get the Winds of Winter published or this movie happens. Right now Martin is winning.
