HBO greenlights A Game of Thrones pilot! (spoilers)

EDIT: Changed the original header to mark this as the thread where spoilers are allowed (but not necessarily recommended...). Created a new, spoiler-free thread for Ice and Fire virgins...


This is awesome...

Huge, Huge News

Nov. 11th, 2008 at 10:29 PM

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.

I hope Jauffre Baratheon dies a horrible, painful, slow death.

That is all.

Hmmmm.....
I nearing that ledge myself. I am about 1/3 of the way through the 4th book. Thankfully the 5th book comes out next month but after that I'm screwed.

After the second book I said I was going to wait until the entire series was published before I kept reading. That lasted exactly 1 week. Then I picked up the third book. This thing is just too good.

Don't deny yourself. I encourage you to read. The wait between will be hell, but the story is good enough, and dense enough to hold. You can read them multiple times and still miss some amazing details.

Plus, like LOST, each previous book takes on new meaning with each new book. There are a lot of hints and references to future (and past) events in each book that you can't catch (or even realize are references) until you've read the next installment.

The more I've been reading up on these things, the more I realize I've missed. This guy is a better writer than I gave him credit for, and I gave him A LOT of credit. He is very careful with his words. His language is completely intentional. I thought these books were a little over padded. But maybe not. It might all be necessary. Anyway...

There's a lot going on.

I already spoilered myself partially, by seeing on his wiki page that
Spoiler!


So I'm guessing he gets his.

Didn't read any further.
