I read somewhere they were looking at between 7-10 seasons, perhaps even a movie to really show off the dragons.
Im conflicted about this series. I love it but I am tempering how into I get because I have no faith it will be finished by the original author.
The movie idea was floated by Martin. I really think it would be wrong. As for him finishing this series, especially taking into account his morbid obesity and slowing down to a book every five to six years, it's very possible it will not be concluded. However in the case of Robert Jordon's series, another author came in to finish it.
In regard to finishing the TV series Martin has given the producers an overview.
I thought the movie idea was more to just kind of wrap up the whole thing. Like once the series pretty much finishes up, they would do a movie to kind of wrap up each storyline in a big way.
I don't know...I heard Martin say something about how the series could just take a year off while he writes. How bout you get your fat ass behind a desk and write the frickin thing? I've been calling this guy Tolkien Jr. for a while and I think I'm right.
Who knows...maybe if he croaks, as long as the show runners know where he's planning on going with it, they can do it justice.
