LOS ANGELES, Nov. 20 (UPI) -- The rumors that there is a Game of Thrones movie in the works was given more life after actor Charles Dance said it was a "distinct possibility."

In an interview with the Daily Beast, Dance was talking about his role as Lannister patriarch Tywin Lannister when he let it slip that the producers of the hit HBO show are in talks for a film.


"There's talk of eventually trying to do a feature film, but I don't know which of the storylines," said Dance. "There's so much to cram into a film."

Dance is not the only one to mention a Game of Thrones film. The author of the Song of Ice and Fire, the series on which the show is based, George R.R. Martin said there should be a movie and has plenty material for it.

"The books get bigger and bigger [in scope]. It might need a feature to tie things up, something with a feature budget, like $100 million for two hours. Those dragons get real big, you know," he said.

There is also a video game in the works but Dance had not heard of it, meaning they are probably not using his voice for the game.


"Oh, really?" he said. "I know nothing about it. Who's doing the voice? They haven't asked me to do it... I want to know something about that!"
