Now It Can Be Told

The HOLLYWOOD REPORTER has broken the story, so I'm now free to comment on a juicy little nugget of GAME OF THRONES news that I've been sitting on for a week or so:

Neil Marshall has been signed to direct an episode for our second season.

For those of you who have been living under a rock for the past ten years or so, Marshall is the director of CENTURION, of DOG SOLDIERS, and -- especially -- of THE DESCENT, which I think may well be the best horror film of the past twenty years or so. (Do NOT confuse it with the sequel, a much weaker film). GAME OF THRONES will be his first foray into television.

And my comment?

That sound you hear is a high-pitched squeal of delight.

I love Marshall's work, in case you couldn't tell.

And what makes this especially exciting is that the episode he'll be directing is... mine. Yes. He's going to directing episode nine, "Blackwater." The Battle of the Blackwater.

I still don't how the hell we can possibly afford to do half of what I put into that script, but if anyone can pull off my budget-busting battle, it's Marshall.

Map of the World
Hi George,

Sorry .. I'm not sure how best to contact you so I will leave a message here :)

I was recently commissioned by a couple down in the states to do a Map of the Lands in your book series. I believe a few weeks ago at a convention they managed to get you to sign a copy for themselves and to give you a copy of the map. From what they told me you enjoyed the rendition of your world that I made :) Which to say the least made me very happy. Can't tell you how excited and nervous I was about it :) I'm a big fan of the Tv Show and my Girlfriend is too and is currently reading the series :) Either way I thought I would introduce myself and just pass my support for you and your series :)

All the Best
Ron & Lindsay
