HBO to Adapt A Song of Ice and Fire

Variety and CHUD.com report that HBO has acquired the rights to turn George R. R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” into a dramatic series! The plan is for each season to cover one novel. In the first season, George is set to script one of the episodes himself, with the rest written by the executive producers, David Benioff (“Troy” and D.B. Weiss (“Halo”).

This is a major step towards bringing the series to the screen, but it should be noted that no production date has been set, and questions such as where the series would film are still open. Essentially, the series has been optioned by HBO as a possible prospect for production in the future.

George’s S.O., Parris, has confirmed the news here, and even discusses some of the dreamcasting.
