    A Game of Thrones coming to HBO

    I don't know if this is of interest to anyone, but I'm excited by it!

    George R R Martin's epic (and as yet unfinished) fantasy novel sequence "A Song of Ice and Fire" (if you're into fantasy and haven't read them, start now) has been greenlit by HBO.

    The pilot was filmed last year, and the suits gave the go to a 10-part series based on the first novel yesterday. The masterplan is to adapt one book/year until it gets cancelled and/or catches up with the books. The cast includes Sean Bean, Mark Addy, Lena Headey, Jennifer Ehle and too many others to type. Should be good.

    More details.

    Now all I need is for Peter Jackson to start on "Mortal Engines"...

    Well given Mr Martins progress towards getting "A Dance with Dragons" finished, we could well be into the second or third set of reruns of the third season before we see it..
    Looks to be a very good production though.. for any who don't know it, the Song of Ice and Fire series is NOT your run of the mill Fantasy fayre!
    Murder, Political Intrigue, Regicide, more murder, religion, Dwarfs (well a dwarf), Incest, more intrigue, rebellion, War, more murder and generally a collection of folks who would make the Borgias look tame by comparison!

    Just stumbled upon this looking for something else. I've only read the first book in the series, but thought it was very good. It seemed to be a lot 'darker' than a lot of fantasy work. I may have to subscribe to HBO just for this.
