'Game of Thrones' Prequel Axed by HBO

The Naomi Watts-starring project that was supposed to take place hundreds of years before the events in the original TV series has reportedly been killed off by the network.

AceShowbiz - A "Game of Thrones" prequel, starring Naomi Watts, has been shelved at HBO, according to reports.

Showrunner Jane Goldman has emailed the cast and crew of the project to let them know the pilot is dead, Deadline sources reveal, but network bosses have yet to confirm the news.

The prequel, which was created by Goldman and "Game of Thrones" author George R. R. Martin, takes places thousands of years before the "Game of Thrones" TV series, which ended in May, a month before the prequel got the go-ahead.

Last month, HBO bosses unofficially greenlighted a pilot for another prequel project from Martin and Ryan Condal, set 300 years before "Game of Thrones".
