Game Of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin recently sent the blogosphere ablaze by very casually dropping the title The Long Night as if it was the actual title of the upcoming Game Of Thrones prequel.

It seems that Martin was speaking out of turn and had to very publicly backpedal.

"HBO has informed me that the Jane Goldman pilot is not (yet) titled THE LONG NIGHT.   That’s is certainly the title I prefer, but for the moment the pilot is still officially UNTITLED."

The very long awaited next book in the Game Of Thrones series hits bookstore shelves in less than two weeks November 20th with Fire And Blood.

The final season of Game Of Thrones hits HBO sometime next year.

J.J. Abrams 3 Star Trek films together made just over one billion dollars, his one Star Wars film made over 2 billion dollars alone, and his other films and tv shows together have raked in way more than both of those universes combined.

Well, it looks as if Abrams is looking to step things up to the next level now.

He is working on a deal that would include movies, television, digital content, music, games, consumer products, and even theme park opportunities.

He is rumored to be holding court at a table with several studios trying to win his services in the negotiations.

We all miss the show Breaking Bad, but Walter White is dead, so it's all over, right?

The mighty Geeks Of Doom reports that a Breaking Bad movie is actually in the works.

There is no word on if the movie would be for television or the movie theaters.

With Better Call Saul taking care of the before, it would be a solid guess that the movie will take place after after Breaking Bad ended.

No word has leaked if any original cast members will return, but it will be part of the Breaking Bad universe.

Rumors are saying that the story "tracks the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom."

Vince Gilligan, Mark Johnson, and Melissa Bernstein are all reportedly returning to their spots behind the scenes.

Vince Gilligan will write, executive produce, and maybe even direct.

A reboot of The 4400 is currently being developed.

The story revolved around four thousand four hundred young adults disappearing over several decades, then all showing back up at the exact same time, and at the exact same age they disappeared at.

Since the reboot is only in development, not much further info is available at this time.
