Naomi Watts Will Headline HBO's GAME OF THRONES Prequel

According to Deadline, Watts will be playing a "charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret", though further details are being strictly kept under wraps - along with numerous finer details about the series and it's connections to the current Game of Thrones show.

Regardless of how you feel about HBO's forthcoming Game of Thrones spin-off (a prequel set thousands of years before the events depicted in the current series), there can be no doubt that casting Naomi Watts as one of your leads is a major casting coup.

No official word on when the Game of Thrones prequel might debut on HBO, but sometime in 2020 seems the surest bet.

Watts is a fantastic actress whose career began to rise with appearances in films like Mulholland Drive and The Ring. She also starred in Peter Jackson's King Kong reboot.

It was recently announced that Watts had signed on to play Gretchen Carlson in the Roger Ailes limited series now in the works at Showtime.

The long-gestating project for the untitled prequel is said to take place thousands of years before the battle for the Iron Throne, as chronicled by HBO's award-winning swords and sorcery drama, GAME OF THRONES. Goldman is showrunning the new series, since David Benioff and D. B. Weiss will have no involvement with the new show.

Goldman will be joined on the series by Game of Thrones co-executive producer Vince Gerardis, and Damages co-creator Daniel Zelman. Meanwhile, BBC Studios executive James Farrell and Jim Danger Gray (HANNIBAL) will executive produce with Chris Symes (THE ALIENIST) acting as co-executive producer. We'll have to see how far Watts makes it.
