HBO Decides to Enter the Throne Games


?HBO’s adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones fantasy series? It’s happening. The network has just ordered an actual 10-episode series. No more pilots, no more dicking around; it’s happening. I’ve never read a page of the Game of Thrones books, but even I’m excited just to imagine what HBO would/could do with a fantasy series — if it’s even a quarter as good as Rome, The Wire or Deadwood, it will likely be the greatest fantasy TV series of all time.

The show will star Lena Headley, Peter Dinklage and Sean Bean, among others, and the first official pic from the show is above. It’s a guy on a horse. I assume that’s a good thing? Maybe? (Via SciFi Wire)
