I’m hearing this is actually a preview of a preview, with a significantly longer version coming with the Boardwalk Empire finale next week.
Video: HBO teases A Game of Thrones
The first teaser for the upcoming Game of Thrones aired tonight, targeting the True Blood faithful. The video is very blink-and-you’ll-miss-it, but you can head over to the official page (or the fanblog Winter is Coming) for a good look at Sean Bean in costume.
Since we last checked in, a few roles have been recast: Michelle Fairley has stepped in as Catelyn, and Emilia Clarke as Daenerys. Filming is due to start in July.
HBO’s Game of Thrones casts their Tyrion
The fans – and George R. R. Martin himself – were pulling for Peter Dinklage to play Tyrion Lannister, and today The Hollywood Reporter announced him as the first actor cast in the pilot. We also get word of a director, Tom McCarthy.
HBO greenlights A Game of Thrones pilot
The A Song of Ice and Fire TV show moves one very big step closer to reality with this morning’s news that HBO has greenlit the pilot. There’s no guarantee that they’ll pick up the series from there, but the script is “very faithful” to the book, according to author George R.R. Martin. Whether that makes it good TV we’ll just have to wait and see…
A Feast for Crows
Open Thread: Fall Book Releases
I was at the bookstore today, and noticed two of fall’s big fantasy releases are already out: Neil Gaiman’s Anansi Boys and Robin Hobb’s Shaman’s Crossing. Coming out next Tuesday is Gregory Maguire’s Son of a Witch and the latest SW novel.
Also coming out soon is George R. R. Martin’s long-awaited A Feast for Crows, and – surprise! – yet another Wheel of Time book from Robert Jordan.
Star Wars aside, what fall releases are you most looking forward to?
Better half than none
Remember George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire series? Well… A Feast for Crows is done. Sort of.
