Game of Thrones is coming to the stage, with a theatre adaptation likely to be a major attraction in the West End and on Broadway.
Axar.az reports that the show will open in 2023 and depict a pivotal gathering a decade before the events in George RR Martin's novels and the hit TV series.
Some of the best-known characters from the epic story will be involved.
The show will be brought to life by the British pair of playwright Duncan MacMillan and director Dominic Cooke.
"The production will boast a story centred around love, vengeance, madness and the dangers of dealing in prophecy, in the process revealing secrets and lies that have only been hinted at until now," a statement said.
The stage show, set during a grand jousting tournament that helped set in motion the subsequent events, "ought to be spectacular", Martin said.
"The seeds of war are often planted in times of peace," he said.
"Few in Westeros knew the carnage to come when highborn and smallfolk alike gathered at Harrenhal to watch the finest knights of the realm compete in a great tourney, during the Year of the False Spring.
"It is a tourney oft referred during HBO's Game of Thrones and in my novels, A Song of Ice and Fire.
"And now at last, we can tell the whole story... on the stage."
