News: Naomi Watts Joins HBO's Game of Thrones Prequel Pilot

Today, Variety is reporting that Hollywood mega-star Naomi Watts has joined the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel that is currently in the early stages of development. She'll be playing a socialite that's hiding a dark secret. Watts obviously starred in the latest season of Twin Peaks, David Lynch's wonderful Mulholland Drive, and of course Peter Jackson's King Kong remake alongside countless other indie hits and big budget films. The show is created by Jane Goldman and GOT author George R.R. Martin. 

Goldman will be serving as the show runner on the project with Martin assigned as an executive producer. Goldman says that no characters or stars from the current Game of Thrones run will be featured in the new series. This will be a fully original project that will be interconnected to the hit HBO series.
