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