Book by 'Game of Thrones' author to be animated film
NEW YORK - AFP
The report, which first appeared on the specialty website Deadline, says that author George R.R. Martin will produce the film based on "The Ice Dragon," published in 1980.
The book, written for young people, appeared well ahead of Martin's "Game of Thrones" series and does not take place in the land of the Seven Kingdoms, the setting of the "Thrones" medieval fantasy series.
In late April, the author announced that readers will have to wait at least until 2019 to see the book published.
Martin has fallen so far behind in his book writing that the hit HBO TV series has already gone past the storyline in the books.
