George R.R. Martin announced on his blog last week that HBO confirmed it will be filming the pilot of the fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire (A Game of Thrones being the first season). This is good news, but there are no guarantees the pilot will turn into a full television series. According to Martin, executive producers and script writers David Benioff and Dan Weiss have remained loyal to the novels. Supposedly, HBO was to issue a press release, but I checked their site and couldn’t find anything. If I run across it, I’ll post a link to it. Or if anyone else has seen it, can you send it my way? I’d like to read it.
