Game of Thrones Sets Under Construction

Thanks to a tweet from Chris Martin of a Belfast-basd media company, we’ve been informed that the sets for HBO’s Game of Thrones pilot are currently being built at Belfast’s Paint Hall facility. In a follow up to a question from us, he confirmed that the sets were being built in a different area from where Your Highness, a medieval fantasy comedy, is currently filming.

The ever-insightful Winter-is-Coming blog (a very good source for news and, particularly, rumors and speculation concerning the pilot) suggests that this means early speculations that the pilot might use some of the Your Highness sets are less likely. This seems probable, as such set-sharing between projects from completely different production companies and backers seems fairly unprecedented from what our attempts to research the possibility have turned up.
