We've barely begun to get over the recently released trailer for the 4th season of Game of Thrones, but good ol' George R.R. Martin has already given us another idea to be obsessed about.

Following the season four premiere in New York, the best-selling novelist revealed that Game of Thrones films are being actively discussed, and that it "depends on how long the main series runs."

But why would we need Game of Thrones films (not that we wouldn't immediately say yes to one or five)? George said that as scope of the books get broader and the number of TV show seasons increase, there may come a need for a feature film to tie things up.

HBO's Game of Thrones is adapted from George's novel series, A Song of Ice and Fire, which so far has five published titles and two forthcoming ones.

George's Tales of Dunk and Egg, a series of prequel novellas also tied to Westeros are being considered for the big screen, too.

"They could be the basis for [a film]. I have written three stories, and I have about a dozen more," the 65-year-old said. Oh George, you multiple epic fantasy novels author, you.

Time will tell if we're really to expect Daenarys' dragons on the big screen. Be still, our hearts.
