Post Re: Game of Thrones
Yeah, I never really got into the Wheel of Time, just for that reason. I had a bunch of buddies that read it and were devistated when Jordon died. And now that he's passed there's no way i'm going to read 10 books of his story by him and 2 books by someone else.

To get back on topic though, i've been reading that blog you posted earlier, daily. Thanks for the heads up on that.

Blech, so it now appears that no decision on picking up the series will be made by HBO execs until March. Hopefully, the pilot will air before then, at least.

One bit of casting news: Catelyn Stark will now be played by Michelle Fairley as a replacement for Jennifer Ehle. Also, the role of Daenarys Targaryen may be recast if rumors are true.

This is such great news. If HBO can bring their typical quality to this project... WOW!

Now if they had only stuck with their plans to do The Preacher....

Preacher for the win- here's the last status I heard as far as Preacher goes. John August, who wrote Big Fish, Corpse Bride, and some other Tim Burton films among others, is developing a script for Sam Mendes who is overseeing the project currently. He is attached to direct at this point, but you know how that goes. This project would be extremely controversial if they were to stick to the original material, but fabtabulous if it was to be pulled off.

Quality talent behind the Preacher project, but I don't see how in the world they can do it on one film. Not effectively, that is.

Completely agree, the mini-series akin to John Adams or Band of Brothers would probably would be the best format, 10 issues 10 episodes.

Seriously, don't hold your breath on Dance of Dragons. I've given up anticipation for that book months ago when it became clear that Martin is dicking around or has been hit with a case of writer's block. I just hope he finishes the series before he dies.

In a mildly related note, Patrick Rothfuss's 2nd book Wise Man's Fear has an official release date of March 1st, 2011.... Which sucks, but at least we now know.

This is good to hear. Rothfuss has had far better reasons than Martin for the delay between the first book of that series and the upcoming installment.

A bit of news: Emilia Clarke has been cast to replace Tamzin Merchant in the pivotal role of Daenerys Targaryen. She is a newcomer with little experience, so it's hard to say what to expect as with others in the cast (like Maisie Williams). We shall see...

For some very stranger reason, my mental picture of Daenerys is very close to Hayden Panettiere (Claire Bennett from Heroes. Save the Cheerleader, save the world!).

I have no reason why, but that's who came to mind while reading the book. Speaking of book, WHERE'S MY FINALE!!! I would love to have at least a tentative release date, as I need to time my re-reading...

Just going through his blog. Apparently he has nearly 1300 pages written, and there will be TWO more books, at least. Dance With Dragons and Winds of winter.

At least he's keeping people updated on the progress.

My advice to you is to just try to forget about it- that way, when Martin finally finishes the goddamn book (A Dance With Dragons), it'll come as a pleasant surprise. From what I've heard, he's more focused on writing the screenplays for the upcoming HBO adaptation, which is to start filming in earnest in July.

Teaser trailer premiered last night before True Blood. BONERIFIC. I mean it's like 25 seconds of very quick flashes of this and that but they're keeping the tagline of Winter is Coming, which although incredibly obvious, is incredibly relieving. Ned Stark looks perfect, aaaahhhh go to you tube now, sorry I can't put the link up, work comps don't like you tube.

I've just updated the cast list on the first page of the thread to reflect the new castings as well as roles that have either been recast or are currently vacant while a replacement if being sought after. Also, filming of the series has officially started today, so we wait for next year to see it!!
