The creator of the infamous bloody medieval fiction series, the Game of Thrones, confirms that one of his earlier works is next in line for television.

Wild Cards, the collaborative superhero shared universe series edited by George R.R. Martin, author of the The Game of Thrones series, is now set to the big screen as confirmed by GRRM himself. The franchise which is described as a collection of anthologies, mosaic novels, and solo novels, stemmed from numerous contributors and authors and is edited by George R.R. Martin and Melindra M. Snodgrass.


In the announcement via his LiveJournal, George R.R. Martin states that the Universal Cable Productions has acquired the rights to the Wild Cards series and will be leading the show’s development, which is planned to become an interlocking series, with her assistant editor Snodgrass as an executive producer.

Wild Cards was first conceived back in 1986 and shares its inspiration from the superhero themed basic RPG Superworld, and has spawned characters such as Dr. Tachyon, the Oddity, Jetboy and Popinjay, and as well as featured works from authors such as Michael Cassutt, Pat Cadigan and Victor Milan.

As it was one of George R.R. Martin’s works, fans are to expect the same bloody, controversial, and violent storytelling feel at the same level as the Game of Thrones series, albeit minus the dragons. Wild Card is expected to fill in the inevitable void for GRRM style sci-fi storytelling which will take place once Game of Thrones hits its final season.
