George R.R. Martin Werewolf Story Could Become Next Epic on Cinemax
“Game of Thrones” author George R.R. Martin announced this weekend that HBO’s sister network Cinemax has ordered a script for his werewolf novella “The Skin Trade.”
From George R.R. Martin:
I am very excited to announce the Cinemax (HBO’s sister company) has optioned the television rights to “The Skin Trade,” the offbeat “werewolf noir” novella I penned back in the late 80s. The deal is closed, and Cinemax has ordered the pilot script. This being Hollywood, of course, you never know where things will end… but if they like the script, we’ll shoot a pilot, and if they like that, hey, who knows, maybe we’ll get a series on the air.
Personally, I really want this to happen.
