Director Matthew Tibbenham, who previously worked on the game Peaky Blinders: King's Ransom, said: "This is not your typical horror movie. It's a heartfelt story about a father's grief and a gripping journey through thrilling chambers of horror."

Production is currently underway, and the film is expected to release at some point in 2024, although a distributor or outlet is not publicly known at this time.

As well as GoT, Cosmo also starred in Highlander, the first Chronicles of Narnia, and Trainspotting, and Celebrity Big Brother's chaotic winter 2017 series,

Last month, fellow GoT actor Conleth Hill hit out at the show's divisive final season, stating: "I felt that last series was a bit rushed. I was inconsolable, but now I'm fine about it. I thought I'd done something wrong. Right up until the last two seasons, I had no complaints at all.

"I just felt frustrated with the last couple of series because Varys wasn't the all-knowing character he had been. I think the writers wanted to do one thing to end it and the studio HBO wanted to do another."

Game of Thrones seasons 1-8 are available on DVD and Blu-ray. House of the Dragon airs on HBO in the US, and on Sky Atlantic and NOW in the UK.
