HBO Purchases Ice and Fire TV Rights

GRRM shares encouraging news on his “Not a Blog”, stating that HBO has exercised its option and has bought the full television rights for the proposed A Song of Ice and Fire TV series. HBO could have chosen to extend its option to buy the rights, so its committing itself to purchasing the rights is a very positive sign. GRRM cautions, however, that this is still not the greenlight for production that will bring the show to fruition. Anything can still happen, but it’s a good sign. In related news, he adds that Spain and the Czech Republic are leading contenders for the location shooting if it goes into production.
