Is GAME OF THRONES headed to the big screen?

So far George R.R. Martin has only published the first five, of seven, novels in the 'A Song Of Ice And Fire' series. So with the fourth season of Game Of Thrones returning to our TV screens on Sunday April 6th, and it being an adaptation of the fourth book 'A Feast of Crows', it means that the show is rapidly catching up with the novels it is based on. But the author has revealed that the hit HBO show may run longer than the books, and that they are actively discussing the prospect of wrapping the series up on the big screen.
"It all depends on how long the main series runs," Martin said. "Do we run for seven years? Do we run for eight? Do we run for 10? The books get bigger and bigger (in scope). It might need a feature to tie things up, something with a feature budget, like $100 million for two hours. Those dragons get real big, you know."
George R.R. Martin also revealed that another possible big-screen adaptation being considered is one set in Westeros 90 years before the events of 'A Song Of Ice And Fire' and featuring characters that are direct ancestors of some of Game of Thrones' players. 'Tales of Dunk and Egg' is a series of three prequel novellas that revolve around a group of characters, including Ser Duncan the Tall.
"They could be the basis for [a film], I have written these three stories, and I have about a dozen more."
