Game of Thrones Pilot Goes Into Production

George R. R. Martin has reported that HBO has greenlit the production of a pilot episode of Games of Thrones. The Hollywood Reporter provides more details. Congratulations to executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, and of course to GRRM.

The A Song of Ice and Fire forum will very shortly have a sub-forum dedicated to discussing the series, which will be kicked off by a serious casting thread. Why? GRRM has passed on the fact that Mr. Benioff and Mr. Weiss are aware of past casting threads, and would love to see an updated casting thread which they promise to read. The only stricture we’ll put is the stricture this is generally a serious casting thread, meaning that contributors should think hard about the constraints of television and their budgets. $20 million movie stars don’t do more than one shot cameos.

More when we have it.
