Huge, Huge News

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.

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.
