There’s some good news and bad news if you’re waiting for a Game of Thrones prequel series. The bad news is that HBO surprisingly passed on a series led by actress Naomi Watts.  A pilot was shot over the summer, which we’ll likely never see now.  HBO hasn’t given a reason on why they passed.  But there is good news.  The network has officially ordered 10 episodes of the “House of the Dragon,” A prequel series that is set 300 years before the events of “Game of Thrones,” and follows the lives of the house Targaryen, family of the future Mother of Dragons, Daenarys.

In other HBO news, HBO Max has announced that they will be producing a new Green Lantern series for the streaming service. That sound you hear is Ryan Reynolds crying in a corner somewhere.  It will be produced by Greg Berlanti, Who is responsible for DC shows like “Flash” and “Arrow.”

Bill Murray, international treasurer, has revealed that he wants applied to work at the PF Changs in the Atlanta airport. He was on Amy Schumer’s podcast The other day and said that there’s one job you’d like to have outside of acting, and that’s to work at the casual dining chain restaurant.  “ it looks like the best time,” he said.  PF Chang’s has since extended an invitation.  He got the gig, if he wants it. 
 
 
And Netflix is testing something that is really upsetting a lot of people in Hollywood. They’re trying out a feature that speeds up programming so that you can binge faster. You can set the speed to as fast as 1.5 times the normal rate.  (You can also slow down if you have trouble understanding, which sounds weird. Just put on the subtitles.)   “Breaking Bad” actor Aaron Paul and Incredibles director Brad Bird both had opinions about this idea, and neither were positive.  
 
 
 
 
And check out this amazing photo Instagrammed by NASA of two galaxies colliding.  Some people say it looks like a spooky face - I think it looks like a Daft Punk album cover.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

👀 When we peer deep into space, we don't expect to find something staring back at us...⁣ ⁣ This galactic ghoul, captured by our Hubble Space Telescope, is actually a titanic head-on collision between two galaxies. Each "eye" is the bright core of a galaxy, one of which slammed into another. The outline of the face is a ring of young blue stars. Other clumps of new stars form a nose and mouth. ⁣ ⁣ Although galaxy collisions are common most of them are not head-on smashups like this Arp-Madore system. Get spooked and find out what lies inside this ghostly apparition from the link in our bio. ⁣ ⁣ #Halloween #Spooky #Space #Galaxies #NASA #FacesInPlaces
