There are talks to do it...
George R.R. Martin would like to see Game of Thrones finish with a feature film when the time has come, and may get his way. The author of the Song of Ice and Fire series, upon which the series is based, told THR that there are talks to end the massively popular fantasy series with a big-budget feature film.
Martin, who so far has written five of the seven books he has planned out, said that the show may in fact end up running longer than the books. He said, "It all depends on how long the main series runs. Do we run for seven years? Do we run for eight? Do we run for 10? 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."
THR also claims that the three prequels set well before the events in the series are being discussed as a possible feature film as well.
