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.

I know that you have nothing to do with casting,

but I hope that Rufus Sewell could do Eddard Stark.

I'll be happy with whomever they cast, as long as they do it well, and get contracts that have a chance of keeping the actors for some years.

** SPOILER of "A GAME OF THRONES" **







Well, actually if you want Rufus Sewell as Eddard Stark, you don't need to keep him for some years, but only for season 1 :)

Of course multiple-year contracts will be a key challenge for the other actors.
