Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree

George R.R. Martin really wants us to believe the Elden Ring movie rumours

George R.R. Martin, known for writing A Song of Ice and Fire and Game of Thrones, may have stoked the fire that an Elden Ring movie adaption is very much on the cards. Credited with writing the game alongside FromSoftware’s president (and game director) Hidetaka Miyazaki, Martin’s latest blog post had him vehemently denying any truth to rumours circulating about an Elden Ring movie. The trouble is, he’s denied them in such an over-exaggerated way that, well, now we can’t help thinking that they’re true.

Writing on his website “Not a Blog” on 29th June, Martin says, “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?”

Does that not seem a little suspicious to you? A simple “I’ve heard nothing” would have seemed more legit, George. Or maybe you could have not just mentioned it at all. But now… now we’re all out here thinking that you’re knee-deep in an Elden Ring movie.

There is, of course, no real evidence that an Elden Ring movie is in the works. In a conversation with The Guardian last week, Miyazaki said he was open to adapting the game in some way. He said: “I don’t see any reason to deny another interpretation or adaptation of Elden Ring, a movie for example. But I don’t think myself, or FromSoftware, have the knowledge or ability to produce something in a different medium. So that’s where a very strong partner would come into play.”

That sounds to us like while there are no current plans to adapt Elden Ring, it could very much be on the cards. Miyazaki is certainly open to the idea — and, well, it seems George R.R. Martin is too. And he clearly has links to the film and TV world thanks to the HBO Game of Thrones adaptation.

We’ll be watching this space: we can’t quite imagine how an Elden Ring movie might work, but it’s safe to say that we’d watch the heck out of it.
