Game of Thrones author George RR Martin has revealed that he doesn't think seven seasons of the HBO drama will be enough to tell his story.

The writer is currently working on the sixth book in his series and is planning a seventh.

He told Entertainment Weekly: "I don't think [seven seasons] will be enough to tell the story we're telling in the books."

Martin again discussed the idea of making Game of Thrones feature films, which he has previously said could tie up the fantasy series.

"Ever since I heard that idea I've been both excited by it - I think it would be great - and I've been sceptical about it because I've heard of a number of other shows that were [supposedly going to have movies] like Deadwood, Rome and even The Sopranos, and the only one I've actually seen is Sex and the City," he said.

Martin also gave his opinion on the latest season of the show, adding: "It's been a great season, though by and large we are seeing more differences from the books and I've been predicting that from the beginning.

"There's a certain snowball effect of making changes and I think that will continue. I like many of the new scenes they've inserted along the way, though I miss the things they leave out.

"As I've been saying for years, I wish they had more hours - every time I see another HBO show I wonder why we only have 10 and they have 13. But we've done some major stuff this year.

"The Purple Wedding and Tyrion's trial - with incredible performances by Peter Dinklage and Sibel Kekilli. And the trial by combat was amazing, too. I'm really looking forward to next week as I'm told we have a battle that dwarfs the Battle of the Blackwater."
