George R.R. Martin Pitched A Game Of Thrones Crossover On Westworld

As if Westeros isn't vast enough, creator George R.R. Martin wanted to expand his fictional universe to Westworld.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Martin, author of the book series that HBO's Game of Thrones is based on, met with Westworld producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy a few months before their series premiered on the cable network. He reportedly pitched them an idea for a crossover that would bring characters and the actual actors from Game of Thrones to Westworld.

In Michael Crichton's 1973 movie that Westworld is based on, there are several different theme parks adjacent to the Western-themed one. It's believed that Martin's idea was that there could be another park set in Westeros that's filled with android hosts modeled after the characters from Game of Thrones. That would've potentially allowed for characters like Daenerys and Queen Cersei to interact in completely new and unexpected ways, although they wouldn't really be those characters–they'd be clones just like Westworld's Dolores.

However, Nolan hinted to EW that the crossover likely won't happen. "We love George and our daughter's first trip anywhere in the world was out to Santa Fe for a screening of The Prestige at his theater, the Jean Cocteau," Nolan said. "He's a lovely guy and a stunning writer and it's flattering he would encourage a crossover. We should be so lucky."

Joy seemed to confirm that they're not completely sold on the idea. "I need to be believe that dragons are real," she said. "I want them be a real thing. So as much as I love George, I can't lose that for myself!"

Sounds like we'll have to imagine a shootout between the Man in Black and Jon Snow ourselves.

Westworld airs Sundays on HBO. Meanwhile, the upcoming seventh season of Game of Thrones is reportedly so dark that actress Maisie Williams said "nothing can prepare you" for it.
