HBO's 'Game of Thrones' has alarmed readers of George R.R. Martin's books from the very beginning, if only that the fantasy-drama adaptation might catch up with, or surpass Martin's notoriously long writing process. Now, as season 5 continues shooting across the world, we may have our first major casualties of that process, as Kristian Nairn (Hodor) says he won't appear in any 2015 episodes.

One of the reasons fans of the original books have been so cool with the major deviations 'Game of Thrones' made from the novels has been the direct involvement of author George R.R. Martin. As a producer and writer on the series, he's been present to give his blessing to the showrunners and wag his fingers at aggressive fans, but not this year. Martin will be sitting out 'Game of Thrones' season 5 altogether to finish writing the sixth book in the series, 'The Winds of Winter.'

Now, with the 'Game of Thrones' season 4 premiere looming over all of us, Martin says active discussions have begun for a 'Game of Thrones' movie to wrap up the series, or perhaps tell additional Westeros tales.
