Game Of Thrones star Charles Dance has confirmed there is potential for the hit fantasy show to pay a visit to the big screen.

The cult drama based on George R. R. Martin's novels debuted on HBO in 2011 and will return for its fifth season next year. However, Dance - who played wealthy Lord Tywin Lannister in the first four seasons - revealed that the idea of a spin-off movie is being mooted.

"There's talk of eventually trying to do a feature film, but I don’t know which of the storylines," he told The Daily Beast. There’s so much to cram into a film."

Meanwhile, Dance also confirmed that his character will briefly appear on screen during the show's forthcoming fifth season - despite meeting a grizzly end in season four's final episode.

“Well, only my body [will appear]!” Dance explained. “I don’t wake up in the shower having had a dream about it all.”

HBO unveiled nine new cast members for Game Of Thrones season five at San Diego Comic-Con in July, including former Bond villain Jonathan Pryce and Oscar-nominated actress Keisha Castle-Hughes.
