Bad news, Game of Thrones fans: Rumors of a movie started flying after the UK's Daily Star claimed that series creator George RR Martin, speaking at HBO's Emmys afterparty, revealed that his world would be coming to the big screen. "There will be a movie but I will not be involved," he supposedly said, while a "production insider" added that the film would likely go "back in time." But yesterday on his blog, Martin responded to a commenter asking about the quotes: "Completely false. No one is working on any movie just now. And if there was a movie, it would not be about Robert's Rebellion." (Read more George RR Martin stories.)
