Huge, Huge News

Spain
HBO has given the production order.

They will be filming the pilot episode of A GAME OF THRONES.

It's just the pilot so far. They'll need to see that before they decide whether to proceed with a full season's episodes. So let's all hope the pilot will kick serious ass.

It should. David Benioff and Dan Weiss did a terrific job with the script. And yes, all of you can relax, it's very faithful. Dan and David will be the executive producers for the pilot and (we hope) the eventual series.

More details when I have 'em. The news is very fresh. HBO just issued their own press release, which should be up on their website soon, if it's not there already.

Winter is coming to HBO. Hot damn.

Congratulations!!!
You deserve it. Did you have input in creating the script? If you did, did it bring back memories? I don't know why but I'm tickled pink (and I'm darker complexioned) for your success in this. Of course this means I'll have to now subscribe to HBO.

Actually, is it known whether there will be an open casting call? And if so, who do we contact? I'm, like, dead serious about wanting to be a part of this... ;_;

Wow, I can't believe it! This news just mad my day... no, wait, the rest of the year. I can't stop jumping into the air and screaming all kinds of happy profanities. :) I know it's just the pilot for now, and it's still a long road for full series, but what a huge step it is.

Big congratulations to you all!

I can't wait to see who they cast! If Ned isn't perfect, I'll never forgive them.

Congratulations, George! Great news. Looking forward to hearing more about the production as the news is made available. I wonder if the greenlight means the shooting location(s) have been settled already?

For those who are interested, we've opened a special forum just to discuss the pilot and potential series at the A Song of Ice and Fire forums. In particular, there's a casting sub-forum created specifically because Davis Benioff and D.B. Weiss have told George they'd welcome fan input.
