George R.R. Martin Has Seemingly Teased An Elden Ring Movie/TV Adaptation

Doesn't he have that other thing to work on?

George R.R. Martin, famed writer of the A Song of Ice and Fire book series later adapted into HBO’s Game of Thrones, as well as credited writer on FromSoftware’s 2022 epic, Elden Ring, has seemingly teased the idea of yet another adaptation of his work to the TV (or film).

In a post on his personal blog, Martin wrote about winning a Nebula Award for Game Writing for Elden Ring back in May last year, noting what we already know – that his involvement in the game was purely as far as worldbuilding and that FromSoftware’s writers did the bulk of the work.

“I did the worldbuilding for that project; Hidetaka Miyazaki and his team did all the rest. We were both honored with trophies. I was not at the awards banquet, however, and in any case only one trophy was on hand for the event. That one went home to Japan, where it truly belongs.”

More interesting than that though, is a little further down where the writer chooses to address talks of Elden Ring being adapted to a new medium, only a few days after Miyazaki himself told The Guardian that he doesn’t “see any reason to deny another interpretation or adaptation of Elden Ring” such as a movie, though it would need to come via the right partner.

And so back to George’s blog post, where he writes, “Oh, and about those rumors you may have heard about a feature film or television series based on Elden Ring I have nothing to say. Not a word, nope, not a thing, I know nothing, you never heard a peep from me, mum mum mum. What rumor?”

Very interesting, indeed. And look, neither of these people have even begun to confirm that something is actually happening. But two of Elden Ring’s biggest narrative influencers both talking about an adaptation within less than a week of each other? That’s the kind of storytelling that From fans are trained to pick up on.
