HBO’S CONFEDERATE: ‘NOT THAT BIG A DEAL’

HOLLYWOOD – HBO’s new TV show Confederate is ‘actually not that big a deal’, according to everyone now.

Initially, Confederate the alternate history show by Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss is no longer a priority to be upset about. The drama shows a present day America in which the Civil War was not won by the North and the confederate states still exist.

Activist Journey Plank spoke EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec:

Initially, I was really upset at the idea. These white guys are writing this show including depictions of slavery. I just didn’t think they’d proved themselves in anyway competent to deal with the various sensitive racial issues that this would inevitably bring up. But since we have a White Supremicist in the White House. Also torch lit rallies, the KKK unhooding and actual Nazis walking the street, I guess it’s slipped down my list of priorities.

Insiders from the show are actually talking about how real life events are slowly changing the show’s concept.

One source told Studio Exec:

We were actually thinking that the Civil War really didn’t end the way we think it ended. Generally speaking countries don’t tend to have statues to enemy generals who lost the war. It is an example perhaps of American Exceptionalism which we could do with rethinking.

Confederate will be broadcast shortly after the outbreak of the second American Civil War.

 

HODOR SPIN OFF MOVIE GREENLIT

HOLLYWOOD – A spin off movie of the popular Game of Thrones character Hodor is to be made into a separate movie, HBO revealed today.

Everyone’s favorite mono-word character Hodor is to get his own spin off film HBO announced today. The movie will star Kristian Nair and is currently being written by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss in conjunction with George RR Martin.

The big friendly giant will have his own story which is set before they events that being season one of the television series but will not feature him as a youth.

George RR Martin took time out from not finishing the latest book to talk EXCLUSIVELY with the Studio Exec:

We did think about making a version of the story where we would go back to when he was called Wyllis. I even toyed with a Different Strokes situation. He would always be getting into trouble with the Starks and Jon Snow. It was very funny, but ultimately we just realized there wasn’t enough story there and so we decided to go back to the idea of what makes Hodor great and that’s basically Hodor.

So what is the story?

I can give you a twist that I hope the guys don’t mind me telling. We were obviously worried that the main character just has one word for the whole film to repeat. That’s okay for TV where you have lots of other characters but we thought it might not be enough for the movie. So we came up with this idea that Hodor is only saying Hodor whenever the Starks are in earshot. Aside from that he speaks normally with a slight Oxford accent. This is really funny. It gets him out of so much trouble. The only problem is Kristian is having real difficulty learning his lines. So there’s a chance we might just go back to him saying Hodor all the time. David Mamet did a first draft for us two years ago so we’d just go back to that one.

Hodor: The Motion Picture will be released in 2018.
