According to Variety, Kingsman co-writer, Jane Goldman, wrote the HBO pilot, co-creating the project with George himself, whose book series is called A Song Of Ice And Fire.
The prequel is expected to follow the disintegration of Age Of Heroes in a terrible era for Westeros, the fictional land in which George's characters reside.
All five projects related to Game Of Thrones that are currently leaked on HBO are prequel series, according to George, who has prevented Game of Thrones cast members from participating in the returns.
Perfect for the role: Oscar-nominated movie star Naomi has reportedly signed on to play "a charismatic socialist who hides a dark secret," according to a quote obtained by Variety
Despite the fact that he and Jane came up with the story that stars Naomi, Jane put together the real teleplay for herself and is programmed to act as the individual showrunner.
Naomi is no stranger to the world of science fiction and fantasy, having led the cast of the new version of King Kong in 2005 directed by the Lord Of The Rings director, Peter Jackson.
As it happens, George is often compared to the author of The Lord Of The Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien, for whom he has often expressed great respect.

He also plays former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson in the upcoming Showtime miniseries The Loudest Voice In The Room, starring Russell Crowe as the late founder of Fox News, Roger Ailes.
It so happens that Naomi's old friend Nicole Kidman also plays Gretchen in a Jay Roach movie about Roger's sexual misconduct scandals.
