A Song Of Fire & Ice

This had been in the works a while and is still is still a ways off but still exciting news for fans of series book/tv crossovers (Dexter, True Blood). Id highly recommend picking up the books or listening to the audiobooks (available on torrent sites), it is a truly epic tail and will make for great tv if done right.

It was recently announced that Peter Dinklage has been cast as Tyrion:

"On May, 6, 2009, Dinklage was confirmed to be playing Tyrion Lannister in HBO's adaptation of author George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, called Game of Thrones."

More about 'A Song of Fire & Ice"

"HBO has acquired the rights to turn George R.R. Martin's bestselling fantasy series "A Song of Fire & Ice" into a dramatic series to be written and exec produced by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

"Fire" is the first TV project for Benioff ("Troy") and Weiss ("Halo") and will shoot in Europe or New Zealand. Benioff and Weiss will write every episode of each season together save one, which the author (a former TV writer) will script.

The series will begin with the 1996 first book, "A Game of Thrones," and the intention is for each novel (they average 1,000 pages each) to fuel a season's worth of episodes. Martin has nearly finished the fifth installment, but won't complete the seven-book cycle until 2011.

The author will co-exec produce the series along with Management 360's Guymon Casady and Created By's Vince Gerardis.

Martin's series has drawn comparisons to J.R.R. Tolkien, because both are period epics set in imagined lands. But Martin has eschewed Tolkien's good-vs.-evil theme in favor of flawed characters from seven noble families.

The book has a decidedly adult bent, with sex and violence comparable to series like "Rome" and "Deadwood."

Just an update after seeing some behinds the scenes footage during the True Blood finale. According to http://winter-is-coming.net/ (the best source on this show that I know of), they are already in talks for a second season.

PS: Mods, can you change this thread title to 'Game of Thrones' or should I just make a new post and have this one deleted?
