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.

Est Vous ??
How much creativity will involve yourself?? have you any say so in casting ??? I would be nervous if I were you. After all this is your child !!! I would have trouble letting go, giving someone else all the creative freedom.

I sometimes get the feeling that Wildcards is his child.

congrats. as has been said, maybe I need to get HBO again. No more Sopranos, no more Wire, and no more Rome, it hasn't been worth it to keep the channel.

Awesome. I'm almost looking forward to this as much as book 5.

Any chance you can get Ann Coulter to play Cersei? You know she's perfect for it.

Re: OMG!!
Do you know this for a fact about the release, or are you just guessing?

Yay!
I'm excited to see a series! I hope it doesn't ruin the image of all the characters in scenes I have created in my head from the books, though. Either way, I'm excited!

I guess you (GRRM) need to get crackin' on the rest of the series so they have plenty of material!

If it's a hit, maybe they can make a series from the "Hedge Knight" books!

Wow!!!
I have very excited about the green light, but I am even more excited about the loyalty to the script. I know there will be changes, but honestly Goodkind's series has scared me. And yes I know he basically gave the writers full control. Frankly if I wanted a new story I would have bought the book. :)
