Sono molto scettico
Di materiale cartaceo non ne hanno moltissimo e la partecipazione di Martin non so quanto possa pesare. Scriverà lui gli script? Avrà ampio potere decisionale e di veto?
Considerato l'andazzo delle ultime stagioni di GOT temo il peggio
No, Martin non scriverà niente: la showrunner e scrittrice è Jane Goldman, e George è coinvolto marginalmente, avendo soltanto dato qualche idea, e non partecipando in altro modo.Jane Goldman has been announced as head writer and showrunner.
It is also known that, in contrast with Game of Thrones, this series will have a full "writing staff" - most drama series of this scale have writing staffs of about half a dozen people, while on Game of Thrones, showrunners Benioff & Weiss admitted that for most of its run, the only writes were themselves and Bryan Cogman (and one or two other writers in earlier seasons). The identity of the other staff writers on The Long Night is unknown as of February 2019.George R.R. Martin's actual level of involvement in creating and writing The Long Night is largely tangential, and only in an advisory role.
In an interview with The New York Times on November 30, 2018, Martin explained that he didn't have unpublished notes on the Long Night, nor plans to develop any narrative in it (apparently meaning that it was HBO and not Martin himself who selected this as an idea for a prequel TV series). Martin's novels don't discuss anything more about the Long Night than the brief legends which have already appeared on-screen in the TV series (such as Old Nan repeating the legend about it in Season 1). Very little is even known about what society was like in Westeros during the Long Night, given that it occurred 8,000 years ago, before the beginning of recorded history.Martin therefore explained that he did not create the plot outline, characters, or setting details for the Long Night TV series. HBO owns the rights to create a Long Night prequel TV series, not Martin himself, so they could have made it with or without him. Instead, Martin said that his role in this series is mostly advisory - giving notes on Jane Goldman's ideas, which she is not required to follow. Thus it is something of a misnomer for HBO to say that Martin "co-wrote" the Long Night prequel pilot with Jane Goldman. Martin does not even have control over the title of this prequel pitch.
In his interview with The New York Times, Martin stressed that the Long Night prequel is "mostly" the creation of Jane Goldman. In his own words:
"If you look at the published books so far, there's really very little material about [the Age of Heroes and the Long Night] — a sentence here, a sentence there. Old Nan tells a tale that takes up a paragraph. So Jane had to create the characters, the settings and some of the events, and we had to look at everything that was said and say, 'O.K., here’s what was said at this point, we need to make it consistent to that.' We kicked around some ideas and I made some suggestions. But mostly it's been Jane running with it."https://gameofthrones.fandom.com/wiki/Game_of_Thrones:_The_Long_Night
